    Myriophyllum sp. recovery

    High Tech Aquarium: Advice Needed

    If it were me i`d worry about getting the tank working right first, then once everything is growing niceley with minimal algae i`d look to getting the asethetics sorted, its a matter of prioritising your goals for the moment and deciding what is more important to you for a month or 2 . Obviously...

    New to EI dosing, algae questions

    You should really base it on tank volume unfilled to start with.

    Effect of co2 mist on fish

    fault lies with the dropchecker, must not of rinsed it enough when i bleached it , the fresh one is still blue this morning at lights on. Kinda funny tho as i was thinking my growth rates had slowed a bit.

    Effect of co2 mist on fish

    I'm starting to think that there is something else going on in my tank , just changed over the dropchecker to my spare with fresh 4 dkh water in so I shall see what this looks like in the morning.

    High Tech Aquarium: Advice Needed

    That's not so bad. I'd suggest moving your other filter and the power heads over to the right side and point them all at the left side glass with the outlets as high as you can get them without causing the flow to break the surface of the water. Then place your co 2 diffuser on the left side...

    High Tech Aquarium: Advice Needed

    which side is the hardwired filter on ? and which way does it direct your flow ? thirdly, is there anyway of altering which way the outflow nozzle points.

    Effect of co2 mist on fish

    I don't know the science behind it but it has something to do with how the plant uses the available energy using less to uptake co 2 means it can devote more to other activities There was a thread on barr report last year about it As always the proof is on the pudding and a near doubling of...

    High Tech Aquarium: Advice Needed

    36 watts by two tubes of t 8 over a distance of two feet would qualify as low light for sure here is a nice read about par vs distance with various lighting options. The best test kit for your tank is always the plants themselves amd the fish whilst your dropchecker is telling you you have...

    High Tech Aquarium: Advice Needed

    Sorry , but it is almost 100% certainly a co2 issue and not light (unless i`m misunderstanding and you mean too much ?) carbon makes up the majority of plant mass , and holes etc can usually be attributed to this. for reference dwarf sag grown under 36 watts of t8 light in a 25 inch deep tank...

    Effect of co2 mist on fish

    Sorry ? My question was about co2 in mist form vs co2 that has been totally dissolved into the water coloum and the effects (if any) on fauna , which is still unanswered.

    Effect of co2 mist on fish

    Drop checker is 4dkh water and bromo blue ofc, and as my tank is light limited more co2 = faster growth , via a long process of trial and error over the last year or so i`ve managed to run the tank with much higer levels of c02 than is genrally reccomended via a combination of lowering the...
