Does anyone have any tips for growing HC and dwarfhairgrass doing the DSM? I am currently misting the tank and keeping it covered with saran wrap half the day. Also, the lighting period is 8-9 hrs/day.

Thanks! The plants have only been in one day so I will try to keep it updated as they grow.

Does anyone have any suggestions about heater to use if I want to keep it low profile/out of the tank? So far the only heater I have seen is the hydor in-line heater, which is quite powerful for a small tank.

Do you guys think my 32 watt screw in cfl is adequate to grow HC and DHG with pressurized co2? If not, any suggestions. Tank is about 19in long..
