Hey, your tank is looking mighty good! Wish my HC was like that.

My first attempt at a carpet, things started off good. Then by the third/fourth week.

This is when I planted, March 10 - 12th

This is it now. March 31st

Problem: Small leaf growth, Brown, Burned Edges, Yellow, Lack of colour, Poor growth structure.

Advice taken: I added more K, trimmed most of the yellow / brown, up Co2 just a bit.

Stats: 30 ppm Light green PH drop checker, EI dosing, 23 watt 6500 K on a 6 gallon, with 42 LED light bar (Coverage is mainly the middle)

Any help will be appreciated.
