    I had started my new tank for almost 17 days.
    My HC was growing quite well and some patches were pearling but recently some of them started to melt away!

    What could be going wrong exactly? My other plants are all growing well and i had added shrimps and oto to combat against algae if any.

    Was dosing the tank with ADA Green Brighty step 1

    Re: HC Cuba

    What is your tank water temperature ?
    If you've learnt, teach, if you have, give.
    Don't walk behind me as I might not lead, don't walk in front of me as I might not follow. Walk beside me, as my friend.

    I think temperature is not much an issue to grow HC provided it is gradually acclimatise to the temp of your tank.
    I can easily grow HC into a carpet in emersed DSM at the current hot weather. It's more to do with amount of CO2 injection and light in submerse form that will make or break it for you.
