My 10G Hairgrass Tank

Started off planted tank for about 6 months with lots of failures, I hope this will be a success.

Trying on with some existing rocks from my previous tore down tank.

6L of ADA Amazonia soil
4 pots mini hairgrass for foreground and midground
2 pots of dwarf hairgrass for background

the tank is now 2 days old ...
50% WC daily for first week
tested with still more than 40ppm ammonia

CO2 at 3bps and lights on for 5 hours daily

some leave turning brown due to growing from emersed to submersed

realise there were some algae already started growing on the dwarf hairgrass

Good luck with it. Any plans for fish/shrimp? The tank looks good to me. Surely it will look better when the grass thickens.
