emersed to submersed
So i've been growing emersed HC and Dwarf Hairgrass for about a month and a half. HC is finally starting to grow in nicely and the Hairgrass is spreading runners in a couple of directions (need to change/clip a few).
My question, is how to do the conversion from emersed to submersed. I want to give it at least another 2 weeks to get the HC a little fuller. But here are my specs now.
5.5G with 18W's on for 13 hours/day. 2x weekly spraying of strongly diluted ferts (NPK), 1x weekly spraying with just water.
So should I just dump in 5.5G's of water and cut lighting period all in 1 day or will that hurt plants? I was thinking of adding water slowly over a week and cutting lights slowing to 8 hours a day.
90G - CA community tank (Jack Dempsey, Fire Mouth, Blood Parrot). 8 Tiger Barbs, 3 Clown Loaches, 3 bristlenose Pleco's.
20G (tall) - Planted. 4 neons, 8 rummy nose tetras, 3 ottos.
5.5G - Dwarf Hairgrass playland for Beta and 2 ottos.
