venzi Posted October 29, 2022 Share Posted October 29, 2022 Hi. So a common concern people have with hornwort is the needles falling off. I'm assuming this is in response to the nutrients in the water column no longer being at a level to sustain growth and/or not enough lighting due to the growth of the plant. So in my mind, if I were to say cut/remove half of the hornwort every 2 or 3 weeks, then the chances of the needles falling off would be very low? I have 2 pumps at the top/rear corners of my 20g tank pointing at each other to cancel the water flow out. Would floating plants such as hornwort be OK w/ this kind of setup? Note that I have a female betta fish that has no problems swimming around in my tank. It obviously doesn't stay within the path of the strongest current (like the platies I have like to surf that current), but just stating this to illustrate roughly how strong the current is and how localized it is. In general, what is the reasoning behind plants not liking "high flow"? do the nutrients move too fast that the plants can't absorb it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
