Dwarf Baby Tears

Would HC grow well (as a carpet plant) with 65w (CF, 6700k/1000K SunPaq) over a 29 gallon tank with eco-complete and DIY c02 and excel dosing?

Yes it will. Just make sure you stay up on your CO2 changing regimen and it'll do fine.

Same question but with a slightly different setup. I have 78W (T5HO) over 46 gallons. I dose Excel, but do not use CO2 - would I be able to grow HC successfully?

46G Bowfront:

Lighting: 78 Watts T5HO (1.7 watts per gallon)

Substrate: 80 lbs Eco-Complete.


5.5 Gallon ADA Nano: Fish need to be restocked.

Plants: Background of Marsilea Minuta, Myrio Simulan and a random Anubia.

Lighting: 13W 6500K Jebo.

Heating: Non-Brand Name 100W 8" glass heater (sounds crazy but great heater)

Substrate: Pond soil from a landscaping store; 1/2 inch of Eco-Complete on top.
