It will grow even if you plant it as a solid clump. Spreading it out more by the methods suggested just allows the carpet to fill in more quickly and evenly. After being in the tank for a couple of...

I have grown out DHG carpets multiple times.

Several times, when I purchased from particular sources, the plants were obviously grown emersed. In these cases, the original blades browned off and...

I have had similar problems with red rubins and marble queens. Both swords proved to be far too large for my 65G. I pruned them back most harshly, but they very quickly grew back to full height. The...

I would have to agree with Gordon. If you grow one of your swords emersed, it will produce plantlets on an almost daily basis once it reaches a decent size.

Every crypt I have grown was green emersed. Even nurri, which I find strange as I have seen pictures of it growing emersed with the typical dark brown leaves.

Most of the crypts grew much smaller...

How much you lose to evaporation depends on temperature, relative humidity, etc. I lose about 1/2 gallon a day from a 65 gallon in the winter. My tank sits about a foot from the wall and I have never...

You need something to contain the gravel, dirt etc, unless you are able to use a long slope, or have very shallow water. A tried and true method other members turned me onto was to use light...

That it is. It was a monster in my aquarium, but the growth is much smaller and more compact as an emersed plant.

Thanks!

I haven't decided on fauna. I don't plan to heat the water, so shrimp would probably do well. I may decide to go with rainbow shiners instead. I don't think I'll be keeping any terrestial...

Champagne yeasts will last a day or two longer, but are 10X the price. Good old baker's yeast is by far the most economical way to run DIY CO2.

Don't use those.

Using ammonium in an aquarium is tricky buisiness that would not be a good choice for most aquarists, especially when far, far safer options exist. Look for potassium nitrate to...

I have most of the epoxy applied.

They can be placed anywhere. I prefer to keep them down close to the reservoir in case the fluid in the line drips out (which it doesn't normally unless you have a leak somewhere before the pump). If...

I'd be interested to see pics once you get it growing. I've seen pictures of emersed UG, but it looks so wildly different from what I would call UG that I'm not sure they are the same plant.

Most of the crypts I've grown emersed are smaller then the aquatic form. They usually tend to lay flat on the substrate also. This may be because I give them more light than I typically do immersed...

It's been my experience that overlit Cryptocorynes are generally variegated brown. Very pleasing aesthetically, but not bright red.

Did you order your coco fiber online or buy it locally?

The only place I can think of to look for it would be hydroponic shops.
