    bonjour,

    well i dont think so but...

    i got a carpet of eleocharis parvula,
    in the past 3 month, they have always been tiny (3-4cm) but green.

    i mist some CO2 for about a week now, and in the path of the spray they first turn yellow and now some become brown (death)

    is it the CO2 or the water mouvement ??

    ~200g. (60x36x24)
    10x zoomed T8 32 watts.
    external CO2 reactor.
    mist CO2 by a maxi-jet 1200gph + eheim spray bar.
    drop cheker say CO2>20-30ppm

    merci.

    No, not with this plant.

    But........

    This plant can brown for other reasons unrelated to CO2.

    I have a similar experience with E. acicularis. I think it is due to too fast water current as I can switch the spray-bar position and reverse/induce the effect.

    Regards.
