thank bro

1)alway plant strand by strand
2)water circulation must be good
3)add macro+micro 2ml weekly, excel every 2 1ml every 2day
4)make sure no shrimp around to sabotage in the initial stage

once it stable...have a hard time pruning

bro...

you can try to flood the tank to 4-5inch, after that put strand by strand, drain out the water once done

but i do find that, as long as water circulation is good...it grow faster without dsm

battle with algae will be high...but slowly u will gain more experience through this stage

alway starve the hc (without light and co2) for 2 days once algae detact

right now, my tank can be consider quite stable, with slight green dust algae every 2 week, just wipe off can liao
