Dwarf Hairgrass

Overall they looked amazing. My only downfall was not using the right type of fertilizer to get them to carpet properly. I will be upgraded my discus tank in the next few months to have CO2 and will be repurchasing for a 2nd attempt. Definitely recommend this product as long as you have the proper setup.
