No, it's just plain ol' sand so I'm thinking a bit of iron might help, especially the nesaea pedicellata. And yup, Excel is the one with carbon. There are a few other brands that make C02 supplements but I think Excel is the easiest to find and probably the most affordable.

I've had some nice new growth with my ludwiga and well everything in my 10G with just a plain ol LED marina light. You know the one Sakura.

Actually the anubis is the only thing experiencing problems >.>

Since I don't have live plants in the tank with that light, all I got was algae. I had to take the light off and put a plain ol' fluorescent bulb on and I'm still getting algae. I need shrimp for my sorority.

Anachris loves cooler water so no wonder it's doing well in the goldie tank. Watch out, goldies love anachris. *munch*

When I did have anachris in with my koi, he never touched it although I've read that they're devastating to plants. They did demolish all of my duckweed within a day.
