I would say you'd need a decent amount of CO2 (say 30 ppm or so) to get it to a nice, lush carpet.

If your not injecting co2 and running strong light you won't be able to successfully grow HC

If your tank is the one in the video, it looks pretty big for 1 BPS. If you don't have a drop checker just measure your PH toward the end of the co2 period and that of a degassed sample (either tap or tank) after it's sitting around for at least a few hours. Your looking for an approx 1.0 PH drop from co2 to degassed.

It is 29Gal tank with Java fern, anubias, cubuan moss, amazon/melon sword, guppy grass, hornwort, a few jungle vals, and a one stem of bacopa.
