I just planted my 14 HC pots in my 72gal bow front on Friday the 13th. So far so good. I have a good feeling about this method. Will know more by this weeks end. This is my first planted aquarium, so I hope it goes well. I stuck some stem plants in for the hell of it. I don't think they will make it, but they were cheap and don't care if they die. As long as the HC survives. Hopefully, all the reading I have been doing for the past 4 months will pay we will see. THanks Tom for this DSM information.
