Yea if you want a dwarf hair grass carpet you really need co2. It will grow without it but it won't carpet it will just clump.

NICREW are nice but their light output is low comparing to Beamswork which is just 10 dollars more. Between these two I would take Beamswork without a second thought.

Suggests starting w/ 50PAR at the substrate..


NOTE: Low tech (no CO2) tanks..
To get 50 PAR at the substrate I will need two Beamswork then. I really like Fluval 3.0 but I would probably need two of them and that's way too expensive for me.
I hate that two Beamswork with controllers in price come close to the price of one Fluval 3.0 which makes it hard for me to decide if I should get one Fluval or two Beamswork...

Yes, I just realized that. I am going to get beamswork instead now.

In this case it might not be a bad idea to dry start the hair grass untill it gets more or less established. Gotta look into this.
