That substrate wont grow dhg its too inert

true you could help things w water column fert dosing, but nothing will beat dirting that tank, under your fmax, or going pressurized co2 and water column ferts. it will take a while for that susbtrate to capture and hold enough organics that break down and give the plants some reserves to use, the substrate itself claims to but doesnt very well at all.

im predicting dhg melt in two mos unless mitigated but the tank is awesome.
