java fern rehab
Hello I need a little help here with my java fern rehab tank.
Everyone I have met says just throw it in there, and let it grow. Some have said a little light makes a big plant, and that is what I am after.
I have a 23 watt cfl in a brooder hood on the glass top. Is that too much?
The guy I got these rhizomes from said the original plants were around ten inches tall, he said they melted in his high light tank. I am trying to rehab these babies into their full glory.
I have a crypt section in the tank I added a tall plastic container for the crypts since they are a bit on the tallish side. The crypts are in topsoil capped with gravel.
Any help will be appreciated
