I am going to start my 2g Fluval Spec using DSM to get my DHG going. I think I have a pretty good grasp on how to do it. But, I am not sure how other plants will do with the method. I am planning on throwing in a crypt or two and a couple stems of some Rotala I have in my 125. Will these do OK with DSM?
My other big question is about co2. This tank will be at my office and will not have any co2. I have read that co2 is very important once you flood the tank. In the absence of co2 can I use Excel? Or will I have trouble with the plants melting.
