Nice experiment. To be honest, I've only had luck killing spirogyra using Algaefix. It shrugged off H2O2 and Excel and I'm afraid of killing my mosses with bleach.

Your water should be fine for C. aponogetifolia if you can grow C. usteriana. Maybe too much interspecies competition?

You cap the dirt. You can use fine gravel or coarse sand. Nothing too fine nor too large.



Cap first, slowly fill up water about a third to half way up, plant, then fill the rest of the tank.
