    I've tried Blyxa in my tank before and had bad results - so, I'm trying again.

    I have pressurised C02 and 4x24w T5 lighting. I use EI dosing.

    The Blyxa is slightly shaded - am I on a hide into nothing by having it out direct light?

    What size tank is it?

    Like most plants, Blyxa does fine in low-medium lighting with good CO2, nutrients and circulation.

    Its 155 litres, George - it's quite deep though, about 70cm. I've got good circulation - the C02 bubbles get right down to the bottom as I use a couple of Koralia 1 pumps - all the plants sway in the flow too :D
