Looking good, you might want to drop that water level though.

I know it gets to be a tough situation. I probably shouldn't have made the slope so significant because the plants on top are dry if anything and the ones on bottom are practically submerged. So I try to spray the stop ones lightly throughout the day

Default 2.5 Gallon HC emersed: Week 3 update

hmm the slight upward growth on the HC makes me think there isn't enough light? My HC grows flush with the substrate. could also be too much water...

Just lean/tilt the tank back so the waterline is more or less parallel to the substrate.

Very nice. May I ask, you only spray some water into this tank daily? not other stuff add in correct?

I had the light very close to the tank at first but then the plants on the top of the hill were starting to get tannish/yellow and looked like they were getting burnt so i set the light a little bit higher so the light wasn't as intense

Would that mess up the slope of the hill?

Yeah im surprised how it easy it has been. I didn't know if a desk light would do it but it seems like the plants are doing pretty decent
