I normally put 1/4 capfull of excel in the tank maybe once a week and I have DIY CO2 running. I think the java moss mostly does well due to the shrimp. I will have to go soon and cut off most of it. It has a habit of taking over the left side of the tank and all the driftwood.


What do you mean when you say it does well due to the shrimp?

Sweet shrimp! I wish I could have CRS but alas my water is too hard and has a high pH. What grade are they? Looks like a lower grade but what do I know?

I think I might try and get some CRS because I am getting a r/o system and that will make it so I can buffer my pH lower.
