are you dosing any ferts? I find the monte carlo grows slowly without co2 and extremely slowly without ferts.

It's been running for less than 24 hrs. I'm not dosing anything right now. I might add some ferts later this week.
I'm ready to get co2 into the tank but I'm going to wait to see how the Monte responds. It would be nice to have a low maintenace tank for a change.

that is true. Im currently dry starting a 7 gallon with monte carlo and seeing if it will survive with just once a week dosing and once a month water changes

I grew mine emersed no problem at all. I hear different things about this plant regarding low tech growth. I'll make adjustments if I have too. The general consensus is that it's fairly easy to grow with co2.

Default hi

The tank looks great! Just one question though, where did you get finnex light. Also, if you decide to go with co2, and maybe a higher light, some HC would be a great carpeting plant due to it's small leaf size. It would do great for the scale of this nano. Great job on the tank!

I had a ton of Monte Carlo hanging around and no HC so I used what I had. Plus the monte is much easier to grow.

I'm confident that if I went with HC that this light would be sufficient it's a nice little fixture. I bought this fixture from another member on this forum.

Lol. Yeah another part of the hobby with a learning curve. I'm going to keep see how this tank matures before I do anything like that.
