    Hi all,
    i have a 33 gallon thank with the following plants:
    Taxiphyllum spec (Flame mos) (3)
    Eleocharis Acicularis (dwarf hairgrass) (3)
    Echinodorus Bleheri (3)
    Cabomba aquatica (3)

    Also use the following products:
    Sera flore 4 plant
    Sera flore 1 carbo
    (So far not on a daily basis though)

    Have 2x24 W T5 tubes (aquarium is 78x37x56cm - 128L)

    The last two plants seem to grow pretty fast (for sure the cabomba),
    he grass i trim to 2cm so it will spread anD that also seems to be working.
    But the moss i do not see any movement (is also planted like the rest in my soil)

    Would a CO2 injection system be worth it or should these plants manage without one?
    Will already start by using my products on daily basis.

    You're on the lower end of the wattage/gallon light spectrum, so you probably don't need it. If you want to see how it would work for the plants, you could start with Flourish Excel or CO2 tabs.

    Thanks for the advice.
    So will wait and use the porducts that i have (but on a daily basis) and see what the efect is. Most of the plants grew already except for the moss....but that is a small growing plant anyway while the others are not if i read it well.
