    Hey all,

    I bought 3 cups of the Eleocharis Parvula/Dwarf Hairgrass from Tropica and put it in my 33G long LOW TECH. Im using the following

    3 inches of ADA Aqua Soil Substrate
    Current Satellite Plus which is around 10 inches from the substrate giving it a par rating of 45 (according to aquarium co-ops video) medium lighting
    Dosing Thrive and Seachem Excel
    Temperature is 24 C/75F

    My two questions are

    1) How long will it take for the Hairgrass to carpet with my setup

    2) Will changing my light to the Finnex Planted Plus 24/7 be too strong (it will have a par of around 90-100) causing insane algae? or will it make the grass carpet faster?

    Thanks in advance.

    Without CO2 it will take quite some time. And without CO2 you don’t want too much light
