Alright! Thanks all! Ill prob get the DIY CO2 going next week or something whenever i have time. School/work is beating my up right now.
It seems like my HC is a lot less green than everyone elses on here. It was in the mail for a few days and it arrived that color, dull green. Ive had the light on it for almost 48 hrs straight now in effort to try to jump start it. Is it getting to much light!?
48 hours straight?!!! That's not a good idea because plants need a dark period for part of their photosynthesis, so the only thing you'll be helping will be the algae. Just set it up for a regular photo period and it should bounce back with your CO2 and time.
