First, the feedback after 22 months of use:
I never cleaned the atomizer in those 22 months. It never leaked and I never had to increase my working pressure. The working pressure is near 30 psi (2.0 to 2.1 bar). So, it is important to have a good CO2 circuit to avoid leaking in tube...
In the nano in my signature, I have a nice Eleocharis background going great since 8 months of immersion without any trimming. I only control the new roots so that they don't invade whole tank. It is now becoming too dense and I noticed subtle signs of potential problems due to the density...
Facing difficulties to lower my GH and KH in my RCS 45L, I made this test:
I filled half of a drink glass with Seachem Flourite Black Sand. Added RO water (KH 0.6) to fill the glass and stir it. After 3 weeks, I tested:
Just shocked. Is this how my tank would go if I...
On my Nano that I dry started (see signature), the new leaves of P. Helferi were white. They looked healthy though and didn't bother at first. Now, I notice that those white leaves tend to show on the long term signs of weakness/transparency
Not all plants are affected, but mainly those...
I need to attach some of my anubia to stones, but I can't use a fish nylon threads on those small places. I tried Silicone but all the glued rhizomes did rot :(
I couldn't get some Super Glue. I found another option called Orca Underwater Glue...
I grew my Anubia Nana petite emersed this way, see the rockwool on the wood to keep anubia roots moist:
I'm looking to a biodegradable alternative to cover my anubia roots and keep them moist, the time they root in gravel. As they will also root in the wool, I would like something...
I use between 1.5-2 bps CO2, 8h a day. My 2Kg (4.4 lb) canister lasted only 2.5 months before I see a drop in canister pressure (meaning end of liquid phase, so only few days autonomy).
Is it normal for my bubble rate or it means I have some leaking?
For my nano (still emersed setup like a tropical terrarium), I just got some Anubia Bareteri var Nana petite (the very small variaty). I put some plantlets on a branch of my wood, 1-2cm above the soil. Soldered them with some nylon and glued one with some silicone. I'm wondering if the...
I'm going to setup a low tech nano shrimp only tank: 11gal tank with 2x11W PC light. It will mainly grow crypts/swords.
I ordered some excel hoping to use it instead of CO2. I'm not used to liquid CO2 ferts at all. Will excel be enough CO2 on such a tank or no? If I plan not to do...
I'm nearly starting a new nano aquarium. I was about to get a Dennerle Nano Cube 30L, then, I saw those Aquatic Nature Cocoon aquariums
It will be Flourite Black Sand based for shrimps only, and maybe later some microrasbora fish
I ordered the...
This is my fisrt post here.
I have a 60gal tank, 2x54W T5 (+3h 4x54W burst period that I could shut soon to reduce light). Dosing EI + pressurised CO2.
I'm looking to remove all stem plants, except maybe a small group of only one kind for aestetics as a spot.
I thought replacing all...
