Have you tried using Flourish Comprehensive? It has made all my plants BOOM in growth. On Wednesday I will be posting new growth pictures and you can see how much bigger my Cabombas got just in one week! It is kind of crazy (its in the pictures/videos thread).

I love sword plants, I got two of them but they weren't doing so well. Once I started using Seachems Flourish Comprehensive (if you find another brand make sure it is Comprehensive) everything sky rocketed.

Oh hahah that makes more sense. The aquarium log puts it to gallons instead of liters so it shows like this: Size 110 Gallons lol That is on your Tank Profile. My biggest tank is a 29 as well. I wish I had a nice 55 or 75 long tank. I wanna keep discus eventually (but their so expensive).
No, haven't tried any plant nutrients.. but I am interested in it! I will have a look out for it soon. is it safe for the fish? and how do you use it? just put a small measure directly into the tank? I'm sure thats what you do...

I will go check your thread now.

This was recommended to me by multiple people. It has worked great.



Here is the link to the Seachem page on it Seachem. Flourish

Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 250 L (60 gallons*) once or twice a week. For smaller doses, please note that each cap thread is approximately 1 mL. Refrigeration after opening is recommended but not required.

I usually do 1ML for my 10 gallon, 2ML for my 20 and 3ML for my 29. I do it twice a week and I keep it in the fridge (it is not necessary but they recommend it so I did it lol)

It is absolutely safe for fish, just don't over dose. Twice a week is enough...you could honestly just do it once a week. I just started doing it twice a week after I added more plants and didn't notice any real growth. Now that I am doing it twice a week everything has boomed.

--

The thread only has one weeks worth of pictures I just started keeping track of growth since I have just started dosing twice a week.
