I think what your tank is missing is fish or shrimp!

And since you seem to have enough equipment for a much larger tank, uh, why not get a 20L? THERE is where your HC would be at home. Or, even better (and my current wish list item), a rimless 33L 48x12x12!

OMG that is one gorgeous reef tank!

I have fish and shrimp, 5 Lamp Eyes and 3 Rilli Shrimp and 3 Otos Catfish. I was trying to take pictures without them in the way

HC thrives on co2&high light. Not saying you cant do it without it just wont look as lush.

Going to replace the 5 lb with a paintball set up and replace this regulator with a dual stage one.



I also found out that people actually use Co2 to grow *ahem, other types of plants. I thought the Co2 in the air was enough. People actually use Co2 in their *ahem other set up, they ask me a bunch of questions why I had a 5lb tank.

I would have to do a lot of explaining if someone never found the tubs of Dry white powder fertilizers, the API test tubes, the Co2 tank and the plastic container of HC Cuba I grow and the syringes I use to spot treat algae.

"..But Officer... this is all for the fish!..."

LOL, thought the same thing, then I found this comic!

I am going to try and get my HC as green as yours!

You can set that regulator up to a timer?
What's your bubble count?
How much wattage do you have on there in terms of light?
How long do you run the CO2 for?

Thanks,
Andrew

HC stands for Hemianthus Callitrichoides , most refer to it as Dwarf Baby Tears...

Check out the new Super Man paintball set up. I thought I add in a bit of colour to the rig.

Nice HC carpet, I am dry starting mine and will keep it low tech after I flood, but will dose Excel. Hopefully it should hold up fine.

^ When you do flood it, expect some dying/yellowing, it just means they're getting used to the water.

I could never grow HC with excel alone, good luck !

You guys dig the Silver with Clear tubing or the Blue with Red tubing.....
