Bucephalandra species Sekadau a simple one from the early days

by Chuck Nishihira

I remember visiting Japanese aquarium stores well over a decade ago and being floored when I saw Bucephaladras for the first time.  The diversity of what was available then in no way compares to the present. I remember sitting down and sharing a MacDonald’s “Filet O shrimp” (this is japan remember) and looking at photos of Bucephalandras in their natural Bornean habitat. Completely covering the rocks emerging from a little stream is where they look best.  Their growth is much faster submerged and their maintenance much less.
