Question

What can I grow that didnt grow before?


Now that I've been using Excel and soon switching to metricide 14, what can I grow in my tanks that I could not before, and what should I not even try? Thanks!

If you are talking about that 46 bow front, then you can grow most stuff with T5HO, it may not grow really fast but it wil definitely grow. Maybe theres only a few select things that would be too hard, but IMO not that much.

Thank you for the quick reply. I have not been able to get any grass like plants like dwarf hair grass, or christmas moss to grow in the past. Also no valls (which I know excel will kill anyway), and a few other common plants. Wondering what I should try next. My swards are growing like mad now, and my red lotus has started growing a little faster then before.
