Other interest is AQUARIUM plants.

I was once asked to apply at the Academy of Sciences Steinhart aquarium in San Francisco. So,i've been keeping fishes for a very long time..stopped for 10 years,then in 2018 started with my last largest tank ,920 liters. Its now by a window for real sunlight and a variety plants. No plans or wishes for more. I've kept them all over the decades and this is good enough for the duration.
You might notice to the far left is Syngonium..roots in water,tops on the tank. Does great this way. No care.

Your tank looks lovely Stan those plants look healthy too good hiding places for the fish. Seems that Syngonium loves where it is its huge.

It also spills down the back of the tank Penny. I noticed that soon after putting liquid iron fertilizer for the aquarium plants..the Syngonium exploded in growth..thicker growth that is a deep green.
Iron gluconate. They sell that as pills at health food stores too. Good for plants and people.

Just shows what a feed can do Stan . Yes I can see it behind the tank it looks great.

That is interesting to know iron gluconate is good for plants as well as humans
I shall be looking that up now lol to see if it will be any good for my cancerous spine which I recently got diagnosed with after being taken in to hospital on new years eve . I know red clover is good for cancers. Violet leaf drops are good for shrinking cysts just has some come from London my sister bought them for me.

That s ok Stan 😊 when they told me I said so I am not a liar then which has proved others wrong like people were implying I am faking it the back specialist stating he did nt think I was in much more pain and to go on a mri scan again which I hate as I am claustrophobic so 12 years or more on they now have their mri scan and they are looking to see where it has come from as spine cancer is normally secondary so they have had an emergency civical smear test done as I had cancer with that years ago but this test came back negative so it's my neck they are testing now as thyroid cancer can cause spine cancer which I told my doctor he said that's what they are testing for my thyroid lol . Where I have it is to do with the motor or I could end up paralysed. I just think and carry on as normal Stan .
Over here we have doubting Thomases that judge on what they themselves are like.

British scientists in Cardiff have found a cure for all cancers in the news recently .

Also GC Maf with a special diet helps cancer too a man on you tube Ian Crain is fighting for David Noakes who has not long come out of prison here for it and his partner which they arrested for help cure stage four cancer patients with out a licence it also helped autistic children in America a doctor had some off David Noakes they both got raided and soon after the doctor in America was found dead face down in a river Noakes partner she has been extradited to France .

By the way Stan it was a local policeman told me to watch Ian Crain as he says the truth on all even Britex it was when I was shopping and he was buying a snack while on duty.
