I am going to buy another few pots of Hemianthus callitrichoides because I didn't know how difficult getting this plant started was going to be.

After an hour of planting the first lot into the tank I found more than half of it floating at the top of the tank :oops:
The fish had taken a fancy to it....I have replanted it and covered it with a hairnet but I still think when I try to take the net off it will drag the plants up.

Any tips on how to successfully get the HC started. :?:

try getting a pressuized co2 kit, yeast is no good on a tank bigger than about 40L. - have a look at the fire extinguisher pinned topic.

Also, get yourself some ferts, try tropica plant nutrition plus and dose about 3ml daily. (it varies depending on plant mass)
