    Sorry, I have no experience with that type of tank at all. I keep "el natural" or Walstad-style tanks very successfully right now.

    Hikari sells micro pellets that are perfectly sized for neon-size fish (there is a photo of cardinals on the package). No idea about NLS.

    4-5 day blackout of the tank works well with green water. Follow that with a water change to remove the dead green water algae debris. The cause of the problem should be identified first though.

    Thanks. I'll definitely try that. The batch I got was actually just floating in the tank and has roots coming out everywhere - shouldn't be too hard to plant it horizontally I guess.
