JCoxRocks Hehe... it used to. You'd kill me if you saw it now. It got neglected during football season. I did a huge clean out and right now am just trying to get my angels breeding.

JCoxRocks Ugh... no updates any time soon. Its football season, so my Sunday trims and constant attention to the tanks has been put on hold for my ECU Pirates, Florida Gators and Carolina Panthers. Stay tuned for March/April, etc. Once football season is over, I'll jump back in again.

No hygro in this tank. You might be mistaking the Polygonum Kowaegonum (I always murder the spelling) on the right side for hygro. At any rate, thanks for the compliments!

I have a $120 test kit sitting on the floor near my shrimp hatcheries that I've used once about 9 months ago. I never test my water. Never. I use a drop checker for the co2 so I don't gas the fish, and I dose nearly twice what the recommended dosage is on my liquid ferts. The results speak for themselves.

drbotts I think it's just funny we were both at work while we were talking. If you wait, I'd like to see the feeding regiment. On the note of overdoing it a bit I think you and TankZin will have a bit in common. As she explained to me, she's a dosing nut. She might have not used those words 'exactly' but something along those lines. Apparently she works in research so water testing is second nature for her. When I told her I didn't do tests... she looked at my tank, looked at me, and I think was a bit surprised.

I agree with you on the salt thing. I came at it from a different angle but to the same hypothesis. I always tell people.... A healthy tank is a tank with plants.
I used to dose salt, I tried canister filters, heavy cleaning, etc.. I probably ended up with worse algae and still fish deaths every once and a while.

My magic ticket has been Marineland biowheels. I swear I think they just offer the perfect harmony of healthy bacteria. I have a HOT filter that helps circulate and pulverise the Co2 bubbles now. It may take an extra bubble/per/sec to fight the oxygen buildup from the biowheel but I never have fish health issues. I mean ... Never.

I will say that my tank never experiences random deaths now that I have plants. Maybe it's just because I can't see the fish when it dies.. lol... but truthfully, it's healthier.

See you Wed.
