Oddly enough mine wasn't doing well at all until I had to treat some algae with H202 then it perked up and started to grow, the nice thing about it is it's not a fast invasive plant like DHG which it tangled all through my HC, good luck.
actually my microsword is doing quite well, i am going to get rid of some and then put some in my low tech 55 and see how it does there. My thought process is to replace the MS with HC now that i can actually grow HC. You see this is my third attempt at HC an i FINALLY think that i have it dialed in. Its is literally out of control and i can not trim it fast enough.

i put fiss on roundish lava rocks, covered them with mesh and placed them in the corners and other various spots to brake up the straight lines of the 2x2 squares of it all around. so the mounding fiss you see is actually fiss on lava rocks

The microsword is mid tank, in the valley, right behind the HC. If you look closely you can see the darker green of the MS

Just subscribed to this. Great work and I love the mountain landscape.
The fiasiden is great, and provides a nice change from the traditional carpeting I've seen on these forums. Excited to see it mature.

A short question. When you emerged your plants, did you elevate the CO2? What was your rate? (bubbles/second if using a counter)

you do not need to use the co2 during the emersed stage.

Once i flooded the tank i had my co2 turned up so high i couldnt count the bubbles do i couldnt tell you the rate. But i do use a simple glass drop checker until it turns LIGHT green, almost yellow.

You figured out what I meant... - too early in the morning! I'll be doing a DSM soon and when I flood my tank Im going to have to 'rehab' my HC into starting with lots of CO2 and then dialing it back to be acceptable for the livestock.

HA!

thx O, i appreciate it.

i have amano in there now. But i cant seem to balance the shrimp and co2 for spme reason. I cant find the happy medium, too low and i get algae, that i am still trying to rid right now, ot too high...which i have killed off maybe 10 amoano already

Once i find the perfect mix ill throw in a bunch of Supreme reds most likely.
