Valls became dwarfed?

So I purchase a couple of giant valls. It is placed in a dirt tank (Instead of soil, I use peat.) with diy co2 and 2wpg. After it was sitting there its growth is short. The leaves are only up to 4 inch. It even spouted new runners. Wonder why my vall became so short?

My day is better whenever I buy a new plant.

Vals like hard water, maybe the peat moss stunted it?

Hmmmmmm... Didn't know peat can dwarf valls. But it sprouted 2 new runners today, and It looks more of a large dwarf sag, than a vall. I know it is a vall because when I bought it, its long leaves are up to 10 inches.
