Cabomba & Escargots
How many varieties of Cabomba are there? I ask because I have seen it typed
many times that Cabomba needs a real rich substrate, CO2 and 4 watts/gal to
Why then did I have a veritable forest in my 10g with no CO2, *gravel*
substrate and a 15w aqua-glo?!
No other plant, not even an *Elodea*(!!!) would grow in this tank yet the
cabomba grew like jiminy split!
Is there another real easy plant that looks a little like a cabomba?
Cylindrical ~2mm stem, alternate fan shaped very finely divided leaves,
emerald green, branches a little, will curl across top of water like a Val
when it gets too long?
On a totally different topic, has anyone else had problems with watersprite
and snails? I acqiured from some plant or other a medium sized ramshorn snail
who has toasted my rock-tethered watersprite. (Toasted him right back in
revenge. How many snails can one fry in the average light canopy? *evil
laughter* :) He really has minced it, its more or less a brown skelington
now. He hasn't touched any other plants.
This happen to anyone else?
