I've been battling BGA in my tank for months because I have too much light and no C02, so I've decided to go low-tech. I am going to be using a 60 watt NO strip light, which will give me 1.57wpg. I am going to purchase some Soilmaster Select for substrate, with a layer of peat underneath.
The plants that I have now are dwarf sag, rotala indica & rotundifolia, green hygro, and jungle val. I have some more rotala and green hygro on the way, so that should give me plenty of fast growing stem plants to start out with. The only plant I'm worried about is the dwarf sag, because the tank is too deep for the light to penetrate to the bottom. Is there any way to fix this without getting a new light? I am also going to try and find some anubias nana, cryptocorynes, crinum natans, giant hygro, hemianthus micranthemoides, ludwigia repens, e.tennellus, and limnophilla sessiflora. Do these plants sound alright?
I have an anubias nana growing on some driftwood right now and it is getting pretty big, with new leaves every couple of days. How do you seperate it? I also have some cryptocoryne wendtii red that is getting pretty thick, can I seperate that as well?
Thanks for any help
