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...

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).

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.
