Last week I bought a bunch of HG and planted in my walstad/flourite tank.

So far.. not so good, its verry brown/yellow with only a small ammount of dull green at the tips. It didnt look all that great when I first put it in, but it has only gotten worse.

Anything I could try to revive it?

I planted some hair grass on the 15th in some potting soil with a sand cap. I separated it into fairly small pieces and cut off most of the grass. (there is a good video of someone doing this online if you google it) It took over a week before I noticed any growth. Now I can see some of it is growing. I have it in a ten gallon with a 26 w spiral bulb, no CO2.

The only weird thing I have been doing is draining off the water every other day to help with the tanins.

Yeah, iI've been doing some heavy and often water changes also. Trying to get rid of the most tannins I can for now.

Soon ill be switching my 90g into a blackwater severum setup. So ill have one tank I do everything to remove tannins from, and another that I do everything too add tannins too lol.
