I have a 135g aquarium. I dose every day, have decent lighting and use Excel. My dwarf sag are producing runners just fine, but for whatever reason I just can't seem to get dwarf hairgrass to produce runners. I've bought dwarf hairgrass from 2 local fish stores and off someone on [Ebay Link...
Almost 3 months old
just discovered planted aquariums and aquascaping, would really appreciate any feedback
•20G SeaClear acrylic tank
•Fluval stratum substrate
•Fluval planted plus LED
•Aqueon quiet flow 10 filter
So, long story short. Wanting to make a carpet out of the even tinier version of the dwarf hairgrass on my new 25cm cube. The substrate is ADA Amazonia and is sloped from the back where the shallowest of it is 1.5cm. Do you think I could make a carpet in such a shallow substrate? I'd rather save...
Hi! I currently have a 20 gallon long tank with a dwarf hairgrass carpet that experienced hell of an algae attack, specifically only hair algae. The only thing in this tank is one neon tetra. I have not put food in this tank for months. What the hell does it eat? Has it survived off of the DHG...
Started off planted tank for about 6 months with lots of failures, I hope this will be a success.
Trying on with some existing rocks from my previous tore down tank.
6L of ADA Amazonia soil
4 pots mini hairgrass for foreground and midground
2 pots of dwarf hairgrass for background
the tank is...
What is the compatibility between hair grass and onion plants? Specifically, regarding lighting and hardness of water.
Other compatibility info would be much appreciated!
They will be put in a two-gallon tank with three ghost shrimp (it might be four initially, as ghost shrimp tend to die...
I recently purchased a little baggie of dwarf hairgrass from PetSmart. The grass came in a bag with the roots covered by a thick, clear gel substance. I followed the instructions on the container, which prompted me to rinse away the excess gel with warm water before burying the roots...
I'm starting a 5.5 gallon low tech (probably with shrimp only and maybe one guppy), and I wanted to try the dry start method for the first time. I've been doing a lot of research and looking up stuff and trying to take it slow and do it right, but I haven't been able to find any good posts or...
Update video of entire tank. (Aug 9, 2014)
Skip to 1:50 if you just want to see how the hair grass is doing. Thanks for watching.
This is my battle with DHG. I think I'm winning.
Bought DHG at Petcosmart. Grown immersed I'm guessing, so I expected...
These started growing in my 10 gallon planted tank. There seem to be at least 3 kinds of algae growing. I'm guessing the hairy stuff is brown hair algae and on the glass is diatoms but I could be wrong and the brown hair could be green hair instead. There are also some brown algae on...
I am new to planted tanks. I was planning on doing a little planted scape to my aquarium. Currently I have lots of jungle val for the corner and background, java fern on a driftwood and a little patch of dwarf sag in one corner. I just ordered a bunch of DHG and wanted to carpet the rest...
I wanted to share an amusing story (or at least I felt pleased with myself).
I always wanted to have a soil substrate in my planted tank, but it's already established with just gravel/flourite.
What I did was grow emersed dwarf hairgrass (Eleocharis parvula) in a container with soil until it...
I am planning to do a serious scape for my nano soon and cannot decide on which grass to use.
tank: Evolve4, display area roughly 9x6x6 (with substrate)
Substrate: Miracle grow organic potting mix capped with gravel (also Osmocote plus dry fert tabs)
Light: stock (still don't know if I...
Hi there! I've been browsing TPT for a while as I've been setting up my first planted tank, and I've finally made an account, with my first question;
I'm currently setting up a 29G tall planted tank, and, after waiting ages for my LFS to get some driftwood in, I'm finally ready to start...
I have a 20 gallon tall planted tank right now. Most of the plants have been doing fairly well, except for one. I have seen absolutely zero growth in my dwarf hairgrass, and it has been a month since I planted it. Just yesterday, I pulled a batch out to see how it was doing and there...
Hi guys, this is my first post. I'm having problems growing DHG. I've tried my best to follow advice given online but haven't had success. The fist two times I tried, it melted within two weeks. This is my third go around.
