      Love this carpet

      Love em

      People mostly speak of how to get these to stay submerged, but I washed the gel off and plopped them right in as is and they've been floating around happily ever since. Massive explosion in growth, about 50% increase per week with high light and co2. The culture separated into nice little individual grown-together clumps, and that's how they still are, only much larger. I had to trim them today after 3 weeks because they were becoming chunky light-hogs. Great floating plant solution without risking the introduction of unwanted algae or animal species.


      So far so good! New growth. Growing attached submerged and free floating.

      So far, so green

      Tied it to a rock. Seems happy with my CO2 and strong lights. Culture cup arrived with a perfect, healthy specimen, so if it dies....itS ALL ON ME!

      Quick delivery, great condition

      Fast delivery and great condition. I broke apart the contents into smaller pieces and let them float. Started pearling the next day!
