    Hi everyone,

    I'm in the planning stages of my next setup and I would really like to try "cyperus helferi" as a backdrop.

    It will be a 60cm tank and the substrate will be the full ADA system (Aquasoil Amazonia, Powersand special, Tourmaline BC and Penac P&W) I have most of this left from my last setup. daily dosing ADA steps

    I will be using Easycarbo only as in my last setup and flow should be OK with Tetratec EX700 and lily pipe and Hydor Koralli nano. Lighting 2x24w t5 tubes 6-7hours photoperiod.

    Has anyone tried this plant with liquid carbon as the only source of carbon?

    Thanks in advance

    I've not tried it with C. helferi, but I'd be surprised if you failed in your set up.

    I've grown full carpets of HC and glosso without CO2 injection, using Easycarbo as an alternative.

    Thanks George,

    I'll give it a go, I'll never know if I never try!

    Can't wait to start, can't afford plants until after Christmas though!
