any of you guys have experience with hairgrass? can it grow in a low light with DIY co2 and flourish excel? i wanted to get some but i was afraid it might die...
the tank i keep mine in doesnt have a heater. i would believe the temps are 60 degrees or less this winter in that tank. more lighting shouldnt heat the tank up much at all. you could also put a fan over the light to move the heat away from the tank.hmmm...interesting....the reason i have such a weak lighting is because i keep CRS/CBS...and im in malaysia...so i need the water to be as cool as possible...
Hi there,You can definitely grow dwarf hairgrass in a low tech, low lighting setting: http://www.sudeepmandal.com/hobbies/planted-aquarium/low-tech-planted-tank-guide/
It just grows slower.
Thanks a lot for the compliment sewingalot. I still consider myself a noob when it comes to planted tanks. It;s just that when I started, I found lots of info on the forums here and elsewhere but many a times, you are told you should do X Y and Z but it is hard to really understand why, and it becomes a bit of Voodoo where you do things because they are supposed to work but you don't understand why.^^Goes to show you never know who's on this forum. :biggrin: This was such a great article for low-tech that I actually wished you were on the forum to help us out on such tanks. You really show the beauty of lower light tanks. I actually have it bookmarked and refer to it often. Don't be such a stranger. :thumbsup:
