    Chalice Help

    OK I need some assistance. I can grow sticks with no problems but I have had no luck with chalices even in my 54 which I run a little dirtier.

    I've noticed they don't seem to like alot of light - keep'em in the bottom 1/3 of the tank. I run a more of a blueish tank than bright white light.
    They love good flow.

    Is everything else doing ok ? If it is I dont think it would be a water peram issue.
