    Your tank is breathtaking! I'm trying to do something similar but on a seriously reduced scale (2.5g tank) lol. I've got dwarf baby tears but they're nowhere near as lush and close to the substrate as yours! How long did it take for your carpet to grow so nicely?

    Thank you for your appreciation .This is the third time when I am growing HC successfully. The substrate is a cheap one and it is not that important for the growth of the plant from my point of view. What matters is the light, CO2 ,KH and the fertilizers, especially macro(N, P, K). I managed to grow it in 14 weeks in this actual setup, but I only had a pot of HC.
