Could I just put my tank outside in the sun for the dry start? I have the best light in the world for free! I could bring it in when it rains. Or would that not work?

Eleocharis parvula grows wild here in Florida so I dont think that would be a problem.

Personally, I think the Finnex light would be enough.

As long as you don't cook your plants, you can't really put too much light on a DSM tank. Keep in mind though that it will probably get hotter than the ambient temperature in the tank, especially on top of black substrate.

After 3 hours of planting I finally got ONE pack plated. It is a very tedious process but there was surprisingly alot in that one pack. Check it out:

I love the little "river" in the middle. How many more packs do you have left? That 1 is probably what most people start with.
