Just be very very very very slow when you flood it off the side with a turkey baster. I got over eager with a plant bowl today and uprooted half the HC I spent 30 mins planting. Though I'm sure a 3 month dry start will lead to a much better root structure.
noted! is it weird that i kinda like the tank not filled too? I cant wait for it to fill in.
i really want to grow some moss emmersed but, i think it'll be a challenge with my tank not humidifying as much as my crab tanks.
