Box Trick

standard 55g aquarium
wet/dry filter
marine land led 48" light fixture
ada africana substrate
co2 injecting high bubble count rate via inline atomizer
around 75% ro, 25% tap water
photoperiod 6 hours a day, 12:00pm to 6:pm
co2 on from 11:00 till 5:30 done manually
water changes range and vary
no fauna, 2 amanos/1 common killifish taken to the sump or co2
fertilization routine constantly changing


Most of us are just blasting light anyways, so we'll never get it right ;/ :/ >l/


I can grow YOUR PLANTS with stoplights

I am a co2 nut, i wouldn't be, but i am a syn. nut too so.....<<<-------->>>

It is time...time to do something in the hobby...do something..i feel so useless...

Thanks but I removed this piece of wood, its the one on the right side so this is way less of a masterpiece now, probably beginner tech now ehe. But if plants grow in should look good. Here is the wood i removed:





Bump: No trip, that type of algae is taken care of
