This is a discussion on Photos of Ludwigia Repens submerged and emersed within the Member Photo/Video Gallery forums, part of the Aquarium Related Chat category; Hi everyone, Here are two photos of Ludwidia repens in my aquarium in two forms, one is submerged and one ...
Beautiful ludwigia Ray! Mine never get even close to that red.
Love it. Anytime my plants begin to grow out of the water column they shrivel up and dry out. What is your secret?
I'm going to guess the lights are about 6" above the aquarium, my office aquarium is a 20 gallon and the lights are about 8 inches and I have stems and flowers above the aquarium.
Here's the full aquarium shot and you can see the distance between the water surface and the lights, just my guess, if it gets too close it will shrivel up also

That is probably the reason why. My lights are a heck of a lot closer to the waterline than that. Beautiful tank.
When is the seminar? That's super tight ludwigia. Again, just because it was only said a few times....How do you get it soooooo awesome red? You must sing to it at night.
There might be too much light, I've noticed some plants aren't doing too well or crawl then I take them out
I think I have too many red plants in this aquarium, at least my wife says so

the funny thing is, in my aquarium i have a brownish carpeting plant called hygrophila araguaia, that if I replaced my glosso, would make this tank even more red
more photos coming up soon, my ludwigia pink ovalis is growing well but super slow and my ludwigia var. inclinada cuba has adapted to my aquarium and is growing well.
On the other hand, my blyxa japonica doesn't do well in this aquarium, I've always had success with this plant in other aquariums, so it might be too much light, in a lower lit tank of mine, it's growing quite well
Would definitely love to see a good araguaia carpet!
