ADJ, it sounds like you've got a good project going. When I had a house, I started an avacado pit. It took a long time to put down the initial tap root, too. Have patience. I would go out when I...

Are you planning to use CO2 and what kind of filtration will you/do you have? Right now, it looks like the plants are doing well. They probably just need some time to settle in and grow.
