I checked in the archives and the consesus seemed to be that to get "micro
sword" to grow you need a rich substrate and good light.

I have had a tank with lileopsis in it for about 3 years with very poor
growth. THe substrate is 1-2mm sand only with lots of fish waste and food
accumulated over time.  Other plants do amazing in this 10 gallon tank
with 60 watts of triton and vita lite.  I have tried to enrich the
substrate with Jobes and Delaware aquatics plant tabs, but to no avail.
Am I stuck with poor, slow growth due to the "nutrient poor" substrate or
is there something else I could add to the area of teh lileopsis to make
them grow better. I would like a "lawn".

Thanks for any suggestions.
