My current set up was updated and I think everything should be growing fairly quick I do water changes weekly 60% and dose flourish comp twice a week and excell every other day. I was wondering how much better it would be with a c02 reactor im in a position to do it. im also upgrading my filter to a fluval 106
I bought all the water wisteria they had at the store, I love this plant its only the first day but i was brought up the fact that the roots might rot because they are planted too close together. does it look that way? i think it should do fine considering its a fast growing plant and it even grows roots from the stems.
i like the way the tank looks but i want to do some changes, i have way too many amazon swords in the back, i just replanted everything how long should i wait before i reorganize or should i leave it the way it is?
I can't even see the log anymore, I don't like how that was covered up...? It used to be a focal point on the right side of the tank - now it looks all uniforn and not exactly sure where the eye is suppose to look first?
Perhaps keep plants in that area, but use lower lying plants.
I noticed some brown/black dots on my swords and anubias I think it may have been from the light being so close to them so I put the light on top of a Iron Bar Gym to give some space.
I got two plants from my job that I don't know anything about I was hoping someone would identify them.
Not sure why my german rams aren't as colorful as others, It might be the fact that my Ph is 7.2 but I'm planning on using R/O water soon since we now have it available at the store I work at. Does anyone know about R/O in platned tanks? Anything I should be aware of as far as dosing chemicals?
I have Flourish, Comprehensive, Potassium, Excell.
Sunday: 5ml API C02
Monday: 30% Water Change, 5ml API C02
Tuesday: Flourish Comprehensive, Flourish Trace, 5ml API C02
Wednesday: 5ml API C02
Thursday: 5ml API C02
Friday: Flourish Comprehensive, Flourish Trace, 5ml API C02
Sunday: 5ml API C02
I do this every week.
I'm considering getting this:
Quick question- why are you dosing 5 ml of API CO2 booster? I just filled my 20L and have been dosing it at 2 ml daily. The instructions call for 1 ml/10 gallons. Is there an advantage to dosing more?
Tank looks great its come along way.
I dose 5ML because I have a lot of plants and strong lighting so I want the plants to absorb nutrients efficiently and also to prevent an algae outbreak. Once I get the Fluval C02 kit then I'll lower it.
I've been interested in double bright marineland LED fixtures but I've read that they arent so good for plants, I'm setting up a 75gal cichlid tank soon and I think the ML LED fixture would be perfect so i might aswell get it anyway.
It is probably one of the poorly bred blue rams from asia. I had a few of these when I first started with these fish. They always look a little washed out to me. But still great fish just not as nice of markings.
Yeah unfortunately he probably is a [censored][censored][censored][censored]ty bred ram from asia. quite sad. i've had a hard time finding good normal healthy ones. i get extremely disapointed and a little frustrated when i see balloon german rams, i mean those are stupid as hell.
