is it florescent? how many watts, and how many K (kelvin)? it should say on the bulb. it should be 5000K-10000K to be useful to plants.
Im using the plant bulb light do I'm not sure both tanks are 55g and one has the playsand and the other is the black sand you can get at petco yes I did
that is worthless substrate (as far as plants are concerned). a good carpet needs good nutrients. my e. belem (belem hairgrass, its the same genus, so similar requirements) grew magnificently in ADA aquasoil amazonia, and even better in a mixture that was 1/2 ADA aquasoil and 1/2 eco-complete with a thin base of MTS.
root tabs should keep it alive, but it wont show fast carpeting without a proper substrate.
what ppm is your CO2?
what fertz do you dose? how much?
you didnt give me much to go on...
if you want a super-easy carpet, do moss.
