I've found, through completely unscientific observation that the dwarf lilies don't grow as fast when they lost their tuber, but they don't automatically die, either.
I'm glad they don't die, I was so upset with myself when it came off as its one of my favourite plants that I'd been trying to get hold off for ages...I've left the tuber just resting on the substrate, hopefully it will sprout new leaves. Do you think the lotus will develop a new tuber?

Hm, not sure. I haven't grown them for several years, so I can't remember. It would make sense that they would eventually.

Just got to this journal, but I'm definitely sticking around. Beautiful tank! What is the stocking? I don't think I saw it anywhere.. or did I miss it?

If you are still dealing with the BBA, I can vouch for the effectiveness of excel to kill it, as suggested by Badger. A while back I had a minor outbreak and was told to spot treat using Excel. I would treat a different spot each time: fill a syringe with my tank's dose, stop the filter, put the entire dose in a small area with the syringe, let it sit there a few minutes, and turn the filter back on. The BBA of the treated area would be dead the next morning. I repeated the process several times until I had treated all affected plants.

Of course, Badger's spray bottle method sounds a lot more practical and you get everything done in one go, but I just wanted to mention that excel worked for me in the past as well.

I'm for moderation in all things. Except BBA. That stuff just needs to die, die, die!
