Dwarf Baby Tears


Would HC grow well (as a carpet plant) with 65w (CF, 6700k/1000K SunPaq) over a 29 gallon tank with eco-complete and DIY c02 and excel dosing?

Yes it will. Just make sure you stay up on your CO2 changing regimen and it'll do fine.

Same question but with a slightly different setup. I have 78W (T5HO) over 46 gallons. I dose Excel, but do not use CO2 - would I be able to grow HC successfully?
