I could show you a luscious carpet of empty snail shells at the bottom of my puffer tank!

I wish my marsilea would carpet like that. All I get is runners that go off in every direction. It never bunches close like that. Got any tips?

Hi amberoze,

+1 on adequate light and nutrients. The PAR reading AT the substrate of the tank in the picture is about 80.

I wish I had a way to measure the par in my tanks.
