As the title says, I am carpeting with Monte Carlo, will be starting tomorrow if you think the bag will last 12 hours from the LFS. Tank is 29 gl. I have marked tooth pics to represent MC "plugs" and Bamboo skewers to represent DHG. I do not have any of the DHG and am open to other companion MC plants. I will be separating their areas with black 1/8" plastic to reduce their legs from wondering into the neighbors yard! Any tips are welcome. BTW, I am planning to run all the MC from 2 3x5 mats. Hope it carries Lastly, first tank, planting. Say a prayer! Will be running a DIY c02 set up after I dry start.
