Hi and welcome to my 33 G long journal!

I am not sure what I am doing with the scape.. probably just a crazy jungle with lots of hiding spaces since it is a community tank.....

Then I bought 2 portions from a member off the classifieds... and seems to be taking awhile to adjust maybe it was grown emersed? :|

hc usually melts when co2 levels are not high enough...its a really good indicator plant on co2
levels in tank....most typically when grown emersed it will melt when submersed because of the huge co2 difference.
ibetta...there is no reason to use excel during a dry start...its a carbon supplement..co2 in the air is roughly 10-15x higher then a co2 injected tank.
if you want it to spread faster...add a dash of kno3 and k2po4 to the spray bottle.
