Thanks for the info....good to know!!! I've recently thought about dosing w/ co2 - maybe I can start a DIY experiment with that!!! I'll try to post some pics in the next few days. I'm dealing with a slight algae outbreak, I think it's white-hair...just suddenly developed overnight...only on the glass (acrylic) not on the plants - yet!! There is one thing bothering me, and has always seemed to be a problem in all my planted tanks...I have unsettled "tank dust" resting on all my leaves....will co2 injections help that, too? Or should I just keep doing partial water changes until it cleans out?? I stirred things up in there a bit with all the scaping and I just don't know how to keep the dust from settling on my plants. My water is clear - conditions are normal, I just have that extra "dust" on my plants. What am I doing wrong, or what should I be doing!!??
