I've been trying to grow some blyxa japonica, but it is just melting away. I have eco complete in a 29g with 110w ah supply, eheim 2217, 30ppm co2 pressurized, and EI dosing. Most all of my other plants are taking off like crazy, but the blyxa hasn't. I also have some ludwigia brevipes that doesn't seem to be growing much for some reason. The paramaters are KH:3 GH:5 PH:7 NO3:10 PO4:1.5

Now the question is should I just leave it in there until it's completely gone or should I just replace it with something else? I'm not sure what I should replace it with either. Also feel free to comment on the other parts of the tank. I'm trying to change it up a little maybe. Here's some pics of the tank.

FTS:


Here's what the blyxa and ludwigia look like. Blyxa in the front, ludwigia in the back


The left side is doing pretty well lol

The left side of your tank looks great! I don't know what to tell you about the Blyxa, it achieved weed status in my tank and I'm not certain why since I have no fert dosing and moderate light and I didn't really expect it to do well. I hope someone else can give you some help, I just wanted to let you know I'm impressed by what you've done on the left side of the tank. :)

Thanks for the compliments :) I'm kind of thinking about maybe getting some HC or something and taking the blyxa out. I would probably reshape the right side a little and maybe add some rocks. I would keep the dwarf sag just on the left. Does that sound like a decent idea?
