Easy Carpeting


Would you guys consider micro swords to be easier to care for than dwarf hairgrass. No matter what I do algae keeps growing in the hairgrass. It's not dying because I clean most of it when I do water changes, and it is still a bright green color. I'm thinking of changing it out, but it does look so nice for 1 day after water changes and has started to spread.

With 3.25 wpg, you need CO2, and plenty of it. This is the reason your dwarf hairgrass has algae on it.
