Sorry it's been so long!

I'm sorry to say I gave up on the UG. It just didn't want to root at all. I'd always come home to gobs of it floating around the tank.

I neglected the tank for a...

Well I had a great one week without algae at all but all of a sudden I've been hit with Diatoms. Funny that this happened to me around the same time with my last tank.

Good luck! Easing into it is a good plan. I changed a little at a time until the algae started to die off. The key is to be patient ( which was really hard for me).

I'd recommend doing all the things I've outlined including cranking up the co2. FYI 5ml of excel is the max I can use on my 10 gal according to the label. Don't get discouraged! It took me over a...

For me it's been cranking the c02 and dosing excel. Prior to that doing WC would only stop it but not cause it to recede.

I'm just hoping I can revive the UG. If not I think I might go back to...

Thanks! When the ug plugs were getting started some of them dislodged from the soil and started to float so I just jammed one in the crack of the rock as an experiment.

I agree about the sr. I've...

Just did a small trim. Ug is growing like crazy but not really rooting too well. The small plugs I planted are now huge but I don't see too many runners or even a decent root system.

The UG is growing well. I'm having a bit of an issue that it is becoming buoyant and uprooting itself. Every time I try and replant it caused the one next to it to uproot and float. The plants seem...

Thanks! I think you might be right, but all the other stones I had did not look right to me. Unfortunately most of them were too big for this tank as they were supposed to be used in a 75-p.
