Why don't you tell use exactly how much light you have?
:P

Low light can mean anything from 1wpg to .2 wpg...

Over a 20g, I consider that moderate light. What type of fluorescent (T5 HO, or regular T8) and do you know the kelvin rating of the tube (number followed by a K, like 5500K or 6500K)?

On the hairgrass, possibly but probably not.

if they're from a beach, they're probably saltwater? and your posting in the freshwater part of the forums, so im guessing your waters just wrong? Also, you should be making a new thread as this is off topic.

I or another moderator can move this to a new thread, but is this salt or fresh?
