Came home after the first full day with the new regulator setup...
word of advice, go with clippard solenoid and swagelock needle valve, period.
The setup is running but the amount of adjustment i had to do to dial in a consistent bubble count.... ugh. i'll see how it goes tomorrow.
so... i've got the pedal to the metal with ferts/co2 and 2x T5HO bulbs running.my plants and fish seem to be enjoying time in the sun but, i noticed these tiny specs of growth on my Syngonanthus sp. 'Belem' !
is this the beginning if dreaded BBA?!
not sure if you guys can see it but... look very closely to the leaf tips of the back row of stems... it looks like soil particles! too much light? would love your thoughts on this one
well here are a couple pics around the neighborhood...
Tonina Fluvalitis... they don't look their best but I had them in my tank for several weeks without co2... some new growth (in the back) are stunted but i think the rest will bounce back with the new parameters.
rotala type 2 mini... these look happy no matter what i do co2 or not... defibately happy in softwater under the high light
ahh my rotalas... i just hacked these guys down on saturday and already new sprouts 1"-2" long!
close up of my crypt walissi. i got this as an emersed plant. super healthy when i planted it no signs of melt.
mu other crypts on the right side... c wendtii hybrid and mi oya... mi oya's been shedding leaves but seems to be bouncing back. the wendtii is melting its leaves, but maybe its just converting to submersed form idk. gotta keep my eye on this one.
last but not least...nyt myt FTS
