|vvDO||Hitman, HM grows better and faster with CO2 but not necessary|

So you did use excel, but you don't now?
According to tropica, hemianthus micranthemoides requires med light and co2 supplementation: http://tropica.com/en/plants/plantde...des(048A)/4476
Light demand: Medium
The average or medium light demand of an aquarium plant is 0,5 W/L.
CO2 : Medium
A medium need in CO2 is 6-14 mg/L. A high demand in CO2 is approx. 15-25 mg/L.
So I am happy that it's possible to grow this plant under lower tech setups

I don't use excel. Which plant are you referring to? Are you sure your not looking at the specifications for dwarf baby tears. You do not need co2 or excel to grow this plant.

So frrok, just for clarification this setup has only used excel for co2 supplementation?
I will be getting this same kind of setup and would like to use HM, but according to tropica its an advanced plant that require lots of light and co2, both of which your setup does not have. I have yet to use excel as my other tanks are low tech... it's nice to know I can use this plant... in its current state do you not have issues with light and flow penetrating the thick growth?

Some changes. Not quite a re-scape. Pulled all the micranthemum umbrosum. And added some more crypt petchii. Also, the hemianthus micranthemoides has just taken off. It's really nice. It is due for a trim tho. Just haven't had the time for maintenance on this tank. Still have some GSA and GDA but it's not that bad. And easy to maintain. I'm thinking if filling in the background with more HM and trim off a lot of the crypt leaves since they have GSA on them. Also, I picked up some tissue culture plants from petco, it's labeled "crypt wendtii green" but it looks more like parva to me. It's still in the process of establishing itself to the tanks parameters so well see how it grows out. It's a slow grower. I dose excel every week or twice week and I think it's helping out the HM. Enjoying this tank a lot. Still has a bit to go as to what I'm envisioning.

Cube update. Heavy trim. Re-scape coming soon.

|Jack Gilvey||This is great setup! And I think the Fugeray-R is a nice addition. I'm not a fan of actinic over plants, too cold. Nice work!|
