If it gets too outta hand I'd be happy to take some off of your hands once I'm cycled.

Looks good.

I think it's getting out of hand in my 29G, lol. And it's only been 2 weeks since I pulled it and spread it out, lol. It's about 2 inches deep in areas.

Why wait? Plants are great for helping out the cycle!

And if fully planted, you may only see a very small mini-cycle, if any at all.

Here's how it looks in my 29G....

Be agressive in trimming it.

Replanting it can be hard but it'll grow right back.
Faster than Gloss or HC.

If you let it get too thick, say over 4-6 inches, then the bottoms can melt and the whole matt will float up and all over (heh..personal experience)

Hmmmm, that could present a problem, lol. I'm on week number 3, and it's already at least 3 inches deep in places, lol. With my lighting, and CO2 mist, it's growing at an incredible rate, lol. Everyday I look at it, and it's thicker, and thicker, and thicker, lol. You can almost watch it grow, lol.

Lovely! I have it too, and it's just now starting to thicken up, but it doesn't look as good as yours (yet).
