sorry guys about the late replies, had a world of issues with the green spot algae on the rocks. So I finally think I found the issue thanks to Billbug on his thread. I had a timer that I got from a group buy and thought the little switches were for half hour increments instead of hours. So instead of the 5 1/2 hours a day I thought it was on, it was on eleven.
So to restart the rocks, I took them out and scrubbed the green algae off but the seachem sand gave way and BOOM goes the hill.
The HC remained in place but if the air. ANYONE knows dealing with HC that replanting ESP in a sand substrate is a mess. So most of my carpet went to crap but I was able to remove a lot of dead brown HC from the underneath of the heavy planted areas.
The AR mini was as tall as the tank, so I trimmed it down to a more proportionate size for the tank. Thanks again Cardinal for hooking me up with such awesome plant. The reason it is in this tank and in tow other tanks is to ensure if one does or does better than the others, I can have a backup
. I am still trying to match the quality/ color of it when I received it from you, Cardinal. Any suggestions? I am thinking that trimming it low, might be the key because the taller it gets in every tank, the more the bottom leaves suffer, turn green, and get longer...
