    Some stem plants just have such fine roots that trying to grow them in gravel is not conducive to good growth. You may have better luck with them if they were in pots of soil with the gravel on top to hold the soil down and just put them in the back of the tank. They should be at the back of the tank anyway.

    Not sure which plant you are referring too.
    With the light you have I will be surprised if the annubias or the swords do well unless there is sunlight hitting your tank.

    I suspect the amazon swords will survive, but I really doubt that they will do well. I ended up pulling mine out because the limited light was too poor for them ever to do well.

    You do have a slightly smaller tank, so maybe things will work out better for your plants, but good luck.

    I also checked my bulb its 20W not a 40W as I mentioned earlier in a post.

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...

    This is a major factor IMO, You need more light on that tank. Twice what you currently have would be considered 'low lighting'.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I have had my wisteria for one week as of tomorrow. 5 stems, they have already grown atleast an inch in height in this time. Lots of new root growth as well. roughly 3.5 watts per gallon, dose 10ml leaf zone (iron) every other day, just started diy co2 two days ago.

    ph before diy co2 - ~7.4-7.6
    ph with diy co2 - 6.8
    ammonia - 0
    nitrite - 0
    nitrate - ~30ppm

    Such a cool plant. Way better than my anacharis which grows much, much slower.

    My java ferns are doing very well also in this tank once I learned not to plant them in the substrate.
