I have not intended to trigger that sort of discussion, but glad to hear that he might still be in the hobby :)
I know what you mean. Some...
Does anybody know if JamesC (www.theplantedtank.co.uk) is still in the hobby?
Hmmm, a bit to late to change it now :?
In the end I decided to use 1cm layer, which is less than what people use in LT.
Still quite a lot, but I...
:) No worries. I'm doing it just for fun. No conclusions, just fun :D
Yes, yes, yes. I know. If I say it works for me better than EI then the...
Hi, thanks for the responses :D
Have been doing that for quite a while now. Akadama+osmocote. Decided to see how the plants will respond to a...
I am just setting up a new tank and decided to give the wormcast a go (after reading this article http://amania.110mb.com/Chapters/Tech/s ......

Hi James. A reply in no time. as I've expected :D
That's the stuff I was using a year ago and was very happy with it, but then I ran out and had...
Just found somebody selling HEEDTA chelated, liquid micro on eBay.

Note sure about green, but indica in my tank always behaves like that after re-planting.
Had the same issue and I have reduced the photo period and use the full blast only for 2h a day.
Love the setup. How much time do you spend on trimming the plants?
:D Love the tint
Are you going to stick to the high kh/gh ?
Hi James, have you changed your mind about the flow? :D
I'm thinking about buying some Koralias myself (just 2-3 smaller ones for more even...
Could anyone advice on the level of noise generated by needle wheel pumps when used for dissolving CO2?
I am in the process of setting up a new...
Thanks for the info!
Just working on drawing showing where all the holes are going to be and will be placing my order soon :D
Following a constant improvement in the quality of my plants ;o) I have decided to treat myself and get a new tank.
In terms of communication...
I use 1200lph filter and a 400lph circulation pump.
Will change the direction of the main outlet for the time being.
I've suspected akadama because of it's PO4 and K binding abilities, but it looks like it is not the cause.
PH in my tank suggests 30ppm CO2, and...
my blyxa grows like crazy, but HC and other small plants not so much.
I thought it may have something to do with Akadama, but looks...
took me a while to find this thread :D
I have similar problems with HC and akadama. All the plants are doing great, except the small...
I've heard the topic has already been discussed, but I cannot find it.
I've been using Akadama for several months now and I am very happy...
Can you get Akadama for a reasonable price?
Which valve do you use to adjust bps?
I would try to lower micro and NO3 and increase P a little bit.
Do you know the params of your water?
It looks exactly the same as a regulator I got from the German ebay seller . Works very well for me.
The solenoind is much cheaper on ebay though....
TPN and dry KNO3, KHPO4 and K2CO3 is in my opinion a good ballance between cost, flexibility and easyness.
You can keep dosing EI amounts of the...
Huge. What's the volume?
Re: Completely stumped
It is correct if the levels of NO3 are at EI level (~20ppm). For 60ppm+ NO3 it may be a problem. I've observed that in my...
Re: Completely stumped
In case of slow uptake you may end up with 60ppm NO3 and 6ppm PO4 in the water. High NO3 together with soft water may...
Great journal!!! Thanks for sharing!
I was thinking whether it would make sense to soak the substrate in PMDD. If I understand the theory...
I used to measure PH and KH to estimate CO2 levels in my tank, however after some time noticed that the PH seems to be quite high regardless...
