My current setup is now about a year old and sometime really soon I think I need to take out the wood with the windelov to do some serious pruning on that and attach it again. As it is now it's growing taller and taller above the waterline.

And that got me thinking, if it's time for a some major work, what else do I want to do? One of the things I'm not entirely satisfied with is the Nymphaea zenkeri. It grows well but it also is a bit of an elephant in the room kind of feel.

Does anyone have any examples of good setups that feature this plant?

Always fancied creating a scaped West African biotope tank with lots of roots with anubias and bolbitis and a massive street of red Nymphaea zenkeri twisting across. Would look great with Pelvicachromis pulcher or P. taeniatus nigeria red or any other WA fish with lots of red in it. Don't have a picture apart from in my head!
