Bacopa Australis

One of the bacopa that creeps, just nice for the foreground. I am surprised that this plant is not so popular with the hobbyist, maybe someone can let me know why this is the case. Many Thanks.




Rotala Sp Ceylon

Finally decided to have a post on this plant, got this from Ah Qiang and am happy to be able to exchange plants and also ideas with a fellow farmer. Hope that you will enjoy the photos.


Echinodorus 'Vesuvius'

One of the very first that got me interested in looking for new and rare plants. It is only recently that I am cultivating it with renewed effort, this is due to low sales for this item but I am cultivating it to keep a healthy stock. This plant is easier emerse and also faster.  Enjoy the photos.

Scrophulariaceae Sp.( Vietnam)

A crawling plant that will cover the front of the aquarium. I got his plant from Vietnam last year and was told that it belonged to the Limnophila family, I just got the correct name from a magazine in Japan. Hope that you will enjoy the photos.


 The emersed plants, with leaves that are slightly broader.

Labiatae Sp. ( from Pantanal)

Labiatae Sp. is not a difficult plant to cultivate and once submersed, will developed nice deep red and purple color on the leaves.

Alternanthera Reineckii "Rosaefolia Mini"

Another plant that I got some time ago and left it on its own, finally got down to cultivating it this month. Hope that I will be able to produce enough to sell by the end of August. Here are some photos to share.





Update Photos for Lud. Twisted





Just an update on the Lud. Twisted, the emersed plants are doing great and really love the fact that even when grown emerse, the leaves will still twist. Enjoy the photos.

Name Changes

I came across a magazine in Japan that listed some of the latest plant to be introduced into the domestic market and I realized that it is time to change some of the plants' name in my blog.
Ludwigia Sp Twisted, they called it the Ludwigia inclinata " TORNADO"
My Limnophila Sp Vietnam, they called it the Scrophulariaceae Sp.( Vietnam)
Lastly, they called my Ludwigia Red Mini, Ludwigia Sp. " Super Red". That is all I have at the moment, I will update again if I come across any different or correct names for the plants that I have.

Ludwigia Mini Red( Super Red)


This is a new plant that I have high hope for as the color of the this plant is amazing and I am looking forward to presenting this plant to the market so that all can enjoy. This is not a hard plan to keep and to cultivate, you really have to see the actual plant to appreciate it. More photos to enjoy.

Sky Aquarium 2011

Heard that there was a Sky Aquarium show going on at Roppongi Hills and we were able to make a visit due to the kindness of our Japanese friends.  I really wished that there is something like this in Singapore so that we can promote the aquarium trade to more people and especially children. Here are some photos, pardon my poor skill.












Once again, many thanks for the care and concern shown by our friends in Japan. Hope to see you all again next year.
