so sad... 5 months and still no good growth of hc? i had mines for about a month or a month in a half and never had any dying issues... only stupid shrimps pulling them up before they can root so i put sand over the hc to hold it down and it still grown out of the sand with no dead spots... u dont need anything crazy for co2... a diy would help or if your lazy go with paintball co2 and flood the tank with co2 as you dont have any live-stocks in it anyways, avoid algae with water... plus it helps cycle your tank at the same time you are growing the plants out... i say its a win/win, after 5 months you should have your HC carpet already...
