Forgive my ignorance please, since I'm very new to the hobby, but I have a few questions I wonder if some of you might be able to answer about HC:
I have no CO2 for my tank yet and am a little too poor to get it for a while. Will HC Still grow and spread horizontally without it?
The other plants In the tanks I'm putting it in are all low-light to moderate light (hornwort, anacharis, java fern, java moss, moneywort, and African sword). will the brighter light kill/hurt these plants? Should I move them into tanks with darker lights?
the other worries I have are the fish I have in the tanks. Mollys, Platys, Guppies, Goldfish, otos, and a pleco. I know plecos and goldfish are notorius for pulling up plants and that mollies and platies may eat some. Do you think it'll be safe once planted or do I need to get it established in a tank before adding the fishes?
Also, can it handle being in a tank that's still cycling?
