I've been trying for about 6 months now to bring on Amazon Swords in my SA setup. I've done the following: changed the substrate to laterite (Eco-complete) introduced EI dosing regime additional light tube to get up to 1.8wpg added pressurised co2 system daily dosing excel to control any algae And the end result, they still look crap. The other day I saw one of my Festivums ripping into one of them, not sure that this is just their behaviour or that fact that the leaves are in poor condition so they have a nibble. As you can guess from my post I'm at the end of my wick now. The amount of money and time I've put into this with no end result, not good for someone like me. Hand me a sledgehammer and I'll sort the tank today. What would you do now, if it was you?
