Re: Tiger Lotus

boukmn wrote about great success with these guys.

Mine always do the bolt for the surface no matter how much I trim them
back.  They have also infested about 1/2 of my 90 gallon tank.  I got them
because I wanted a red plant with nice leaves like the pictures. 

The tank has no CO2 and 330 watts light in standard 90 gallon tank
(48X18X24 tall).  Is this to little light to get the none lily pad leaves?
I really like the plant and it has spread like crazy, but it takes only a
few days to recover most of the tank surface after a complete pruning of
every single leaf.

Any suggestions appreciated, espically from boukmn.
