Lol, I picked up a pack of these growing agar the last time I went to petsmart.

Mine are all doing quite well and I think every individual stem is still alive and kicking.

How's the shine green doing for ya?

IME, it hates bright lighting as it really suffered when it was under a 2 baffled 2' T8 tubes. It recovered really nicely after I moved it to a tank with a 15w...

I would just recommend getting a two pack of 6500K bulbs at a big box store.

If you want to enhance reddish hues or add a little warmer light to the tank, replace the rearmost 6500k w/ a ...

I think I mistakenly told you to get API's Maracyn when in fact it's made by Mardell. It's the only readily available erythro treatment I know of that's widely available at big box stores and lfs and...

Increasing the CO2 will probably exacerbate your cyanobacteria issues at this stage.

Try the erythromycin treatment first and then fiddle with the CO2.

First thing is to get rid of the cyanobacteria, which is a very common problem in aquasoil tanks. The best method is to simply dose erythromcyin (API's Maracyn) as per the instructions for a week....

I agree with what everyone else has said, but one thing that makes a huge difference is to use an actual plant bulb in your lighting setup. They throw a lot more red light than 6500k/full spectrum...

If the plant growth is healthy and you are satisfied with the rate of growth I wouldn't bother changing anything.

BTW, how are you measuring out 1/64th of a teaspoon of dry salts?

I've been using their kits for about 2 years and, although I have nothing against API, the SERA kits are far superior. I love how they give you a nice wide glass tube so you can actually swirl the...

The plant pictured above originated from a clump of rhizomes with medium sized leaves.

Most of that root growth was within 6-7 months after I moved it into an emersed set up.

That's some funky water....

You can also dose calcium nitrate as it's much more soluble than CaSO4, but it will probably have to be your only source of N.

The high temp will be much more of an issue than a pH around 5.

I would say stick to the standard 'trinity': anubias, java fern and java moss.

3 bps in a 10 gallon??????? Well you're problem certainly isn't a lack of co2.

Honestly, a 10g with all those stem plants isn't really sustainable.

No real point in following either in a low light, no co2 tank. I would recommend occasional doses of a trace mix (csm+b) and potassium along with a decent bioload.
