I've got a 7.8gal tank with mostly java fern, java moss, and anubias in it.
A few weeks ago I picked up some pygmy chain sword (Echinodorus tenellus) or at least it was sold to me as this. I've since been informed that it may be some kind of Lilaeopsis species.
The LFS guy also just gave me some free glosso to try.
The tank is 13.8" tall
Here's the specs of my setup.
Light: Fluval 13W compact lamp & 12" Finnex Planted+
Substrate: Fluval Stratum
Fertilizers: 4 root tabs, dose about 2mL Nutrafin PlantGro/ week (it came with the kit, figured I'd try it)
CO2: None except I dose .75ml of Excel /day
I'm not expecting a lush carpet of glosso or chain sword with this setup, but it's been about a week since planting and I haven't noticed much if any growth...
Is my setup simply wrong for these plants? The Anubias and Java Fern seem to be doing fine.
The kit came with a little Fluval Co2 kit. I'm considering using it for a short period to help get the glosso and chain sword growing a bit. Would that be a crazy move?
