My new lights, reactor, and bubble wand have made some difference but progress has been slow due to diatoms and a small outbreak of thread algea due to my regular dosing while not being able to do any water changes. I did a 50% water change Monday and so far all is good with the diatoms and the thread algea seems to be slowing, I deceided to make up some Osmocote gel caps size 00 to put in the substrate because if my tap water has silicates I can not afford or want to play with a RO/DI unit, so this seemed the way to go for now and I will only dose the water column weekly with the PPS Pro system dosing and do monthly water changes. Nothing has really happened with plant growth so I continue to wait in posting a new pic, maybe next week.
