Help with Echinodorus hormanii red

Hi,

I'm new here, i was wondering if i could get some help on looking after my Echinodorus red hormanii, i havent had it very long, but i'd like it to do well.

It's in my 3ft community tank, specs;

little over 30g
26c temp
6.5 pH
144w compact fluro
red sea yeast co2

I add Aquamaster liquid plant food daily but it only has a gravel substrate.
There are a few other plants in there as well.

I'm just getting interested in plants so im new to all this stuff.

Never kept it . . . but according to this site it likes "slightly lower temps", so maybe like 75 would make it more comfortable. Only other advice I can give ya is fertilize the substrate (sounds like you are), and make sure you have some measurable nitrates for it to gobble up.
