Light + low Potassium = algae again
Sorry the only thing I know about the Potassium is some leaves with pinholes. I still think the potassium is low, though, and I have to raise it. I have fooled around with my lighting, from 2x10W CFL, now 1x10W CFL with a screen. This is a 10g tank and I have a blue-green algae infection.
Raising the water flow and putting the screen on have got the BGA on the retreat at a good pace. The light is pretty low and I'm not sure if there is enough light for the plants to start growing agan or they might all die of lack of light. I'll have to see what happens when I get sorme Potassium in there again. My main question is "What's a good CFL lighting for a 10g and will the plants survive until the Potassium gets here." Any comments or suggestions - any would be helpful.
