    Plants looking sorry for themselves in the last 2 weeks

    thanks both, i suspected CO2 as one of the reasons, i currently run an inline CO2 Art diffuser connected to my fluval 307, given the drop checker is always green and ph hardly changes can we assume its poor flow rather than quantity?

    Plants looking sorry for themselves in the last 2 weeks

    think i found the source of the issue, my doser was not running, i have a jebao 2.4 (single channel wifi version) and the interval was set to 1 which i belive is wrong. i did some maintenance over the weekend, removed all the dead leaves and replanted the stems, so far so good.

    Don't know what to believe

    Hi all, i have an established tank and have started to use CO2 in the last4 weeks or so. I'm not convinced my drop checker is right/or my test kits are reading right. I say this because they contradict each other. My DC never changes, it's always a blue/green colour, more blue i would say. i...
