HC carpet question
Hi everybody. I'm a newbie in planted tanks and ive been lurking and browsing thru the forum for a couple days. I am planning to setup a planted tank with HC carpet. I really like the look of it and would like to try. However, i have zero knowledge about it. I have a 16 gallon bowfront tank and i ordered a 20" solar fixture from Catalina. I believe its 72w. I would like to know if DIY co2 would be enough to grow an HC carpet. Also, i have seen people here who do a dry start method in planting them. I would like to get some advice as to the best way to plant HC. I saw on aquabid a seller who has HC carpet grown in coconut husk, id like to know if its easier to just buy that as opposed to getting several potted HC and plant it. I also plan to add a few beginner plants such as nana anubias, crypts and cabomba. Fish will be a group of cardinal tetras. I would appreciate all the inputs that you guys have and thanks in advance!
