From what I researched dwarf baby tears need 10 to 14 hours of lightning and need very bright lights to stay happy and thrive.

I myself supplement my pressurized CO2
with about 2 ml excel addition daily. I run a densely planted 30 gallon tank.
It should not cloud your water
I am trying to find the balance but when i was researching I found out that almost all people who have HC carpet have this issue. This carpet needs lights on for 10 hours minimum to 14 hours max and more over need very bright lights. As soon as turn on my co2
and turn on lights after an hour I see pearling starts in like fifteen minutes which is a good sign.
When you said supplement. Do you mean you switch of pressurised co2
or do you mean you dose excel with co2
injection? Sorry my English isn't too good.
If I need to dose excel with co2
injection what dose shall I go for on daily basis. Its a 15 gallon. So maybe 1 ml?
