    Hello. I have a 20 gallon high aquarium and looking to grow some dwarf baby tears carpet. I've read that they're relatively finicky in terms of lighting and whatnot. I'm trying to find a reasonably priced light that will do well with being roughly 15"-16" away from the dwarf baby tears. I will...

    I got 2 cups of Hemianthus callitrichiodes (the cups are made by UNS, but I bought them from Bruce). They have no roots at all....some little teeny spikes of root in certain places, but 90% of the plant has no visible root. Here’s what I have done: I drained the tank, placed them on the...

    I got a few different orders of "dwarf baby tears". I notice they come in two formats. In one, that I think are grown by the vendor, I got a mass of tiny stem plants with little to no roots. I have planted those as if they are stem plants, just inserting them 1-3 at a time into the substrate...

    Hi guys, I have a new planted tank with HC Cuba and UG, after growing them DSM, which I then have to flood them after a month because white fungus starts to appear (my country is way to humid and also the DW is causing a lot of fungus). so the first 5 days, nothing happens.... but then suddenly...

    I have a Current LED Pro+ light and at max power (100s all around) it only produces about 60-75 par throughout my 22" long tank. The light is about 8" above the water's surface, and the water's depth varies from 7" to 10". I for some reason thought it was producing much more par. My question...

    Fairly new to planted tanks, so trying to keep this simple, both aesthetically and maintenance-wise. I'm pleased how it turned out so far, the pictures are two days after planting the HC. The tank is set up on a counter so that both sides are viewable. In terms of light/CO2/ferts, I have the...

    I need help with planning my aquarium. I want to keep dwarf baby tears in my 10 gallon but I can't use CO2 because Im keeping Crystal Red Shrimp. Can I use the dry start method to grow a normal carpet? Will I need to use CO2 once I flood the tank to maintain the dense carpet. Light would be a...

    Almost 3 weeks ago, I added compressed CO2 to my wife's 20g long planted tank, and shortly after began EI dosing. The plants improved dramatically after just a few days and the last 2 weeks have shown amazing plant growth and development. But seemingly overnight, the dwarf baby tears shot up...

    Hi all, I'm in the process of setting up a new planted and would kindly like some input on these two carpetting plants: I'm aware that HC requires both high light and CO2, but haven't actually found much from online research on glossostigma elatinoides (everything seems to be outdated info from...

    Hi all- so my first planted tank I decided to do a dry start, not only because I have the extra time but to save a bit on start up costs (and because experiments are fun!) So I decided to start with some dwarf baby tears, monte carlo, and hair grass to see how they would grow. I'm on about week...
