The 65g front and side. Im having some BBA issues and tried to beat it with Excel. It really just hurt the crypts. One last try with it, then im shutting down the Co2 and a couple bulbs. It grows like mad, unfortunately, so does the BBA and im tired of fighting it. I have considered turning my Co2 on an hour before the lights to try to make the difference up but havent done it yet. Maybe thats next? Everything in here is a slow grower and fairly rare. I dose PPS-Pro ferts once a week. Is it the ferts? Too little, too much? Co2 is at its limit with 20 CPDs, TPFRs and TTs in here. Along with 2 Ottos and 2 Plecos. Bi-weekly WCs thats not ammended at all, other than Prime.
I started this tank as a high tech tank to get it to fill out faster, but now im wanting to slow it down and reducing the Co2 and lighting, sounds like a good option. Anyone grown Buce in a low-tech? How about some of the harder to grow crypts? A quick, off the top of my head list is...C. nurii 'Phang mutated', C. nurii 'Rompin', C. hudoroi, and C. hudoroi 'Red' are the only ones that im really worried about out of 10 different crypts in here. All varieties of moss and Anubias are unaffected by it(go figure
); If I could find a balance in here somewhere that would reduce the BBA, it would bump this tank up a ton on the "To do" list
An end shot...
