dwarf hair grass

  1. Colorado
    I'm looking for dwarf hair grass. I don't need much, just enough to get me started. If you have other plants that you are thinning, I'd like some of those too. I'm in Arvada; help a new tank owner out? It's bare in there.

    Hi, I'm new to having dwarf hairgrass in a tank, and I've noticed that some of it in my 20gal NPT is melting. The only thing I can think of is that the floating plants (frogbit) are blocking too much light? I truly don't have much experience with the plant. Thanks!

    Howdy! I have been dry-starting some dwarf hairgrass for several weeks now (about 2 months), but I noticed that it has algae growing as well. I'm not sure if I just have to toss all of it, or if there is a way I can save it for the tank I'm planning on setting up this weekend? I am not sure of...

    New Tank! Just acquired this beautifully over grown jungle through a fellow hobbyist. He's getting out of the hobby and donated the entire setup to me. It's a 30 gallon (36x13x17 inch) with a planted plus 24/7, heater, Aquaclear70 and that giant powerhead. Looks just like this, just set up in...

    I dry started some Dwarf Hairgrass two weeks ago, and this week my Hairgrass began browning at a very worrying rate. Here is how it looked two days ago: http://i.imgur.com/cfS57rb.jpg Here is how it looks right now: http://i.imgur.com/ZcTasJH.jpg As you can probably tell, more and more of my...

    This tank has been in the works since August of 2015. With all due my effort, I do feel as if I achieved the "Igwami" look over a course of 4 months. The only thing to do now is sustain it and let it become thicker. Here's a sample of how it progressed. Link to full album of its progression...

    I'm on what is my second round trying to get DHG to take in my tank and this time is going pretty much no better than the last. I have a 40 gallon breeder with pressurized co2, Flourite/Eco Complete blend, and a Finnex Ray 2 36inch. I know that DHG likes to take nutrients from the roots so I...

    So I kind of destroyed my acrlyic 6.5 gallon bookshelf fish tank the other day. I was getting it ready for a co2 planted tank. I painted the back dark grey by accident when I wanted to paint it black. Started to strip the paint with acetone and it absolutely destroyed my tank, not...

    Hey guys, My setup is I have a 10 gallon planted tank, diy citric acid co2, a finnex planted+, and eco complete substrate. I have dwarf hair grass, amazon sword, java fern, italian val, xmas moss wall, and anacharis. What do you think of the setup? My dhg is melting but I think they grew...
  20. Lighting
    I was wondering if a 30 inch stingray would provide the light necessary to grow DHG. I have 1 inch of ecocomplete as a base and will get maybe 2-2.5 inches of some regular sand on top of it. Also will be dosing with API liquid co2. Despite current peramiters, would you guys say im in the clear...
