Thinking of starting a DHG carpet in the middle of my tank.

Substrate - A huge mix of eco complete, aquasoil, fluval stratum, floramax, laterite, and black gravel wih root tabs .

Lighting - 48w Dual T5HO 6500K

DIY CO2
Weekly dosing of Flourish Excel, Iron and and Leafzone.

Can I do it?

I say it depends...:) Are those emersed or submersed? Usually, those you get from vendors are emersed. So, it would take about 3 weeks to see any runners and for the plants to transition to submersed. Of course, you have to make sure you don't get BBA growing on them. I am not sure if you have enough CO2 though using DIY CO2 setup. It took me over 3 months to my carpet to come alive though. I have a high tech tank with a lot, too much at times, CO2.
