Is it something that you tied to the drift-wood or rooted ino the soil?
I started off with maybe 20 leaves of pennywort. I just took each one and planted it in the ground look at this picture to get the idea. If you have high light give it 2 weeks and you will have a lot.

sewingalot That is some major growth for such a short period of time. Let me know how the lights being turned on full blast helps after a while. That is if you still have the 55

Yup all the females are super red in my big tank and in my 7g shrimp tank they are not anywhere near the red like in the 55g . The cabomba is getting its color back a little think its the light you need all the 216w to make the color come out but I am only doing 216w for 1-2hours a day so don't think I will have that full red and pink :/. As for ferts still dosing 2.5g kn03, 3.5g k2s04, and .9g kh2p04 trace 15ml and iron 7ml.

Yup I am dosing dry ferts 2.5g kn03, 3.5g k2s04, and .9g kh2p04 trace 15ml and iron 7ml. As for the spraybar its working pretty good I do have the xp1 with the lily pipe next to it angled at the other side of the tank so I have good flow throughout the tank.
