Thats a nice little set up. So the short version i started off first stock lights that came with tank no good all died two carpets bought a coralife t5ho no good bought fluvals aqau life leds nice light but i knew i needed co2 bought ista co2 kit now were cookin. At about 4 carpets destroyed ahah bought one more with what im doing now and it started to melt some what normal came back started growing so im a month in now carpet started to branch out but alot of it floats away i keep taking what i can and re plant it. I see nice white roots form but im thinking i need to dig up the carpet and detach what i can from the holder there growing in becuase alot of the under growth is turning brown. What do you think? Just didnt plant it right from the get go? Oh also my bottom feeders cause a ruckus sometimes and pull what i plant back into the substate right out. Already transfered two corys into my nano low tech.
Your hc is looking good. Ehat size tank do you have? And what's your lighting.? I'm groeing dom hc as well and I'm struggling alittle. Some algea issues but its not groeing as fast as I'd like, using fluval leds co2 and eco complete as well and dosing all seachems line. Thanks mark
