    Hi All, I was given some seeds stating it is HC Cuba. I planted and grew them in the aquarium, however they don't seem to be HC Cuba. Can you help me ID the plant. Seeds Image: https://imgur.com/a/6SDmwNf Plant Image 1: http://imgur.com/JomuM09 Plant Image 2: http://imgur.com/5dIQikb Thank...

    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...

    Aloha everyone I've been growing HC Cuba in a new 10 gallon tank. It's been 3 weeks and considering the larger ADA substrate (didnt get any powder) the baby tears are flourishing in most of the tank, everywhere except for one corner of the tank. This one corner of the baby tears seems to be...

    I've finished replanting my main tank. It's still work in progress and will take another 6 months to look as planned. It's a 120L tank with a 1400L/H All Pond Solutions External filter and DIY 4x24W T5HO light. The idea was to spend as little money as possible, so the substrate is potting...

    Hi, Is fluval 13w CFL 6400 K bright enough? I have a fluval spec pico tank measured 7'' 3/8 * 7" 3/8 * 10" (2 gallon) is the light bright enough for nesaea and hc? I heard that wpg is not accurate enough for small tank like mine.

    This being my first tank, it is not cycled so I thought starting emersed would be the easiest way to get it going. I planted some Japanese hairgrass 2 days ago in my 20 gallon tank.. I will also be planting some HC when my order gets to the LFS. Im using regular black Flourite as a substrate...

    Hi. I want to create a stunning tank iwagumi style. I want a simple scape with rocks and a carpet plant. I have decided to use HC, but just found a plant called Utricularia graminifolia. It is at least equally beautiful imo. I have found a lot more information on HC, and didn't want to grow...
