Plant + O2 bubbles

Post by pwnell »

I was photographing this underwater plant from my tropical aquarium when I noticed after being done, that there are many small bubbles where I made the cut. I presume these are oxygen bubbles from photosynthesis that leaked out of the cut - since I made this cut while the plant was under heavy illumination for several hours. I think aquarists (scientists?) call this pearling. I thought it made for a pretty picture.
