| | Red Melon sword growing
Thanks to all your expert advice, my plants are doing well. I have a 55 gallon with 2 2 liter DIY CO2 and 4 x 40 watt lighting. I am using Florish and Florish Excell and just got some Florish root tabs. I had been using another brand of root tabswhich had to be replaced every 10 days. I use Fleet enema to try to get rid of the GSA on the glass. I have to scrub it off about once a week. I have a little bit of a problem with Green hair or black beard, but it is not out of control. I just bought 5 otos this week to help with the algae.
The red melon is growing well and has a massive root system, I found out this week when I wanted to move it about 1" forward. I left it where it was and moved the driftwood over so I could see the sword better.
