Adequate Lighting for dwarf hairgrass
First time post. Just wanted to say before I ask my question, great site. It has been a real help.
On to the question:
Is this following lighting setup adequate in encouraging my Dwarf Hairgrass to carpet?
I'm currently running the Fluval LED Aqualife & Plant (P24) in addition to a Aqueon Floramax T8 (24 Inch blub). I'm running them over my 20 gal Long. The LED is approx 1/2" over the glass top and the T8 is sitting directly on top of the fixture. The distance from the substrate to the top is about 8 1/2". Just as a note, I have the LED shining the light at the center of the tank and the T8 in the front directly over the dwarf hairgrass.
Using Eco-Complete substrate, DIY Yeast for CO2 (approx .8 bps) and supplementing with API CO2 Booster and Seachem Flourish.
When I first started the current light setup I noticed I more algae growth, which I'm okay with since I have 5 red nose shrimp, 3 nerites snails, and an SAE in the tank (the nerites have a voracious appetite).
