Kicker's 10g Planted Tank *HC Fest*

Hey, well I've really changed the ways I used to plant my tanks, now its a bit more of a simpler scape with less plant species. Ive gotten into some more rarer plants like Hemianthus Callichoides. This tank is pretty high tech with a 24 inch Coralife pumping out 130 watts of eye retina scorching light, 1X 6700k thats kinda old and a brand new 10,000K bulbs. Pressurized CO2 thru a glass diffuser. Im using the EI dosing regime with Flourish one day and micros the next. Some say the light maybe over kill, but if im dosing normally no algae outbreaks happen, just a tad of greenwater lately but im going to fix that. You can also see im growing HC in strawberry trays in the top. I plan to grow alot for my new 31g that should be set up soon. I have loads of the HC growing up top. Enjoy




A pic of all the HC I have grown so far.

Please tell me what you think of it. Thanks

Wisteria, dwarf sag, and glosso?

How much HC did you start out with, to get where you are now?

On the far left is Rotala Sp Green, middle is glosso along with Blyxa Japonica. I maybe had a 4X4 inch square. I just left it floating and kept splitting the HC apart .

How long did it take for the HC to grow out?

My blyxa is very pinkish with a tint of red. Didn't recognize it. =)

Beginning of July or end of June, I picked it up from someone on a local forum.
