    Question Hair Grass

    Hi,
    I am planning to plant hair grass / dwarf hair grass (dont know which one it is) in a new shrimp tank setup. I am not planning to add CO2 or any liquid fertilisers. my question is will it survive and grow ?

    it will survive, but thats bout it... you will find it grows slowly without co2 i had it in a 120 ltr tank and it didnt do much untill i went co2, then it went crazy
    try using a little liquid carb maby? also if your light is good at getting to the bottom of your tank that would help

    that depends on how strong your light, and how long you leave your lights on too...

    The tank is 81x36x45cm. I have 4 39w T5-HO bulbs @ 6500K. They're on for 8 hours. If I need pressurized CO2, how many bubbles per minutes do I need?

    I already use seachem excel with Tetra Co2 Optimat and a weekly Co2 tab.
    The doses are excel 100% as directed, tetra 50% (1/2 of the directed dosage)and Co2 33.333% (1/3 of the directed dosage).
    The period time is as directed.
