Thank you very much, it grows great but what you have said about the leaves being quarter size with co2 makes sense because I see this plant growing by canals (that is where I got it) and the leaves on those are quarter size while mine are nickel size if even that.

I just assumed since it grew so fast that water changes were enough.

I have a second corckscrew val tank recently set up and was thinking of DIY CO2 , will try it in both tanks.

The water here is the best for no algae at all and amazing plant growth but as you know doesn't come with CO2 so going to try it with soda bottle and air stone in tank.
