    I’ve got a really nasty case of brownish algae attacking my DHG and green algae slime on my glass. I took photos after a water change and some trimming so the tank is looking better than average. With the DHG it seems to start at the ends of the blades and work it’s way down to the base. It...

    Hello, With spring in full swing where I live my attention has been turning towards outdoors projects. I've been thinking for a while that if seeds were obtainable, it could be a lot of fun and potentially quite inexpensive to grow large quantities of aquarium plants outdoors in emersed setups...

    Hey all! :smile2: It's my first post, I'v been reading a lot of posts here in the forum. even when I google a question I'm usually ended up here :) I'm rather new to aquariums.

    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!

    I have 2 groups of plants in my tank (from different sellers) that were sold to me as Giant Hairgrass. Both were labeled Eleocharis Vivipara. Initially I ordered from one, decided that the tank needed more, and saw it on sale from another seller. Side by side they look nothing alike. The grass...

    Hello, started aquascaping 2 weeks ago. Told the guy at the pets store that i want a nice carpet in my tank and he told me that eleocharis acicularis and hemianthus cuba are no beginners plants. Well... i still bought them. And they seem to do really well, i am no expert, check out the...

    In my tank I have a lot of pearl weed and a lot of dhg, but the pearlweed is spreading like, well... a weed. It's taking over the whole bottom and the dhg is having trouble pushing back. I was wondering if I could use a sort of separater like maybe plastic wrap under the soil to keep the two...

    I purchased two pots of Giant Hairgrass for my 29 gallon aquarium about a month ago. The store I got them from assured me that they were low-light plants and would grow fine for me and I trusted him even though I had read on this forum that they were medium light plants. I wanted something...

    No snails. Have few leaflets with dust algae. It mostly grows on the windshield and i clean it off every 3 weeks. Some plant leaflets are browning on tips from the riccia covering the light and a period of low co2. Overall health is great though, stable growth and strong stems. Marsilea Minuta...
