Foreground or carpet plants + new lighting
So originally I decided to do pygmy chain sword because I had the upper end of low light on my aqueon evolve 8 gallon tank. I now have a fugeray 12" LED fixture that gives 38-42 PAR at 10". I am dosing excel but I might be convinced to switch to co2 if there was some easy way to prevent it from killing my beloved fish (lol).
The thing that I have experienced with the pygmy chain sword and this could be a left over effect from the old lighting is that it is very tall (4-6" strands). I just am not in love with the look of the stuff.
