Micro Sag not doing very well...
Back to my micro sag questions...
A lot has gone on with my aqauium since my last post on this topic and i thought i'd get your opinion on what to do with my micro sag as it still isnt doing anything and starting to look very unhappy! Its been in the tank for about 4 months now and only sent out some minor runners.
All my other plants, crypts, vallis, java ferns, hydrophillia, ludwiga? etc are doing very well.
Here are my complete plant stats so you understand the condition the sag is currently under:
60watts over 34 US gallons for 10 hours
CO2 at 17ppm
The temperature at the moment is around 78-80. The substrate which i layed down last week is JBL's Aquabasis topped with fine gravel. The micro sag is obviously planted on top in the gravel and no roots have yet hit the rich substrate below.
I'm dosing KNO3 as per my test kit readings to give me a nitrate reading of 5-10ppm and dosing TMG twice a week at half dose....
Can you tell me what i can improve if anything and why the sag is dying away and the remaining plants are loving it!!?
