Awesome, I figured it indicated that my substrate wasnt healthy. Since excel pisses them off, is that indicative that I shouldn't be using excel at all?
Also, what is the secret to making hair grass grow! I am trying to mix it with glossy and it's been like two months! It is painfully slow and was planted at the same time as your 60-P.
Are there any do's and dont's you an suggest when trying to make a mixed carpet? Guidelines for what species look good (or bad) when mixing? Trimming tips for plants that grow at different rates that you want to mix together, maybe?
I tried mixing riccia with glossy but riccia was such a PITA for me.... Messy trimming, the bottom died and contributed to algae, etc. which is unfortunate since it looks so good when mixed with glosso.
