Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' emersed vs submersed growth

I'm currently in dry start with dwarf hair grass and monte carlo. Does it grows faster emersed or submersed? I have found dwarf hair grass grows faster submersed, but couldn't find any answer for monte carlo.

With CO2 injected tanks, growth rate would probably be similarish between emersed and submersed. Without CO2 injection, emersed is hands down faster.

If you are using CO2, go submersed so you won't have to deal with the transition. I find even with CO2, emersed growth is a touch faster.

In looking to do ground cover as well in a submersed tank. I'm going to build my own co2 system and was wondering how you meter your co2. How many bubbles power second and such

The "best" count of bubble per seconds depends on what bubble counter you use. I would advise you to use a dropchecker to measure the "correct" amount of co2 in the water. You have to find a balance but he drop checker makes it much easier.

I'm not familiar with a drop checker. I will have to do more research.

Nothing special at all. You buy 1) a drop checker 2) 4 kh solution. Fill the drop checker and put it in your aquarium. If it colors lime green while co2 is on your in the good range. The drop checker has a 2 hour delay; which means the color you read is the co2 level from 2 hours ago.
