I am pretty sure that a higher amount of CO2 concentration in the water will reduce your PH. I'm guessing re-doing the DIY CO2 caused the shift. Maybe someone who knows for sure will be able to confirm this?

havnt had an update in quite a while now, a lot has grown and been trimmed and moved around a little bit hear and there. the 20g is moving along quite nicely and added some glosso yesterday! one of the LFS had some available and did a little trade for some of my hydrocotyle. should look nice as the foreground. tho i really like the sand as it sits now. the 10g has been formed into a nice bush. just waiting for the fissdens i added in the front to fill in and my HC to come back to life from a little melt i had not to long ago.

not to sure whats going on with he water but its really yellow similar to the color of tannins but there isn't any bit of wood in the tank. not sure how it got there anyone have some ideas nothing has changed just appeared out of no wear one day. i tried cleaning the filter, did numerous water changes. all of the levels r stable not sure at all what its from :/

anyways here are some of my fancy pictures i took last night after putting all the glosso in

Well bad news for the 10g tank :/ every fish tank goers worst nightmare happened last night in my house. So here what went down. me and a friend of mine were trying to lift the tank a small amount to level it with some small pieces of paper. and as soon as it left the ground, his hand went strait through the side of the tank and all 10 gallons of the water went into my room and emptied into my walls and under the hardwood floor fml right?. but the worst thing of all due to the horrible blizzard we just got the power went out just as all this happened. literately the hand went threw the tank and it turned off. like the cracking glass was a switch or something :::::: so worst case scenario happened. im just glad my 29g didn't break lol.

well i salvaged what i could and was more worried about soaking up water then the fishes safety so i lost about half of the fish and not sure how many shrimp. but all of the plants were safe luckily i guess. once the power comes back on in a couple days we will see what happens. anybody have any ideas to keeping a tank warm with no power lol?? im so f#%$ed

well due to the death of the 10g this thread will be focused on just the 20g witch im going to recape compeltly in the very near future! hopfully with will look much btter then the cluttered mess that it is right now. everything is super over grown and just a huge jungle no real clear focus as in my other tanks. soo in hope of a new start im going to restart the design. hoping that my little shrimp Babbie's dont get hurt in the change!

My new tank that replaced the 10g that i just set up recently with no plants so far and not sure if im going to be adding any; is a 12in cube rimless tank by deep blue, very good looking tank and much better quality then the 10g. might be trying my hand at breed CPDs in this tank and trade my blushing tetras for thos puppies. or just keep my blushing tetras because it looks very cool almost alien like with the entirely rock scape. should make a new thread for just that tank maybe combine it with my 1.5g betta tank thats betta less ATM.

well anyways thats my update for now! i will post pics as i make the before and after of the change.
