samc said:i am so close to ripping this down now. so many problems in this its unbelieveable. first of all the HM was half daead when i got it and its just sitting there, ill probely have to replace it. the anubias is rotting from being sat in a bucket too long before planting and is just falling apart. i have been doing 50% water changes every other day and i have GSA diatoms and fuzz algae. half the nanjeshan has rotted for no apartent reason. and just to top it today 3 of my amanos have jumped out and died.

aaronnorth said:GSA, hair algae & rotting all leads to CO2 defficiency. What colour is the drop checker and is it diffusing efficiently and being distributed correctly?
flygja said:Get some ottos and Siamese Algae Eaters in there. Ottos will wallop the diatoms within a couple of days!
samc said:thats what i would do but with the co2 so high i would gas them in no time
Garuf said:I'm pretty certain you'll hear the same from many but up your Co2 and lower your light. Your dosing could well be inadiquate so double dose with EI. You might also need to improve/change your flow pattern to see if that helps.
