Question about Hygrophila pinnatifida

I have a few stems of Hygrophila pinnatifida that have reached the water surface. If I let them grow out of the water, will they shed the leaves that are under water?

What will eat fungus?

I started a new tank about a month ago, and there's still fungus growing on the driftwood. I thought it would have gone away on its own by now, but it's still growing strong. It's only loosely...

EI dosing and vacation time

How do you deal with EI dosing when you have to be away for a couple of weeks? Do you overdose before you leave? If so, by how much? My tank is 47 gal and heavily planted (and no fish).

I started filling up the tank as soon as it drained out, so the plants were exposed to the air only for a few minutes. They didn't dry up at all.
