FDNY911 I will Jkan, thanks. I'm definitely motivated now. I just received 4 giesemann bulbs today in the mail! Aqua Floras and and Mid day sun bulbs. Haven't really noticed much of a difference because of the damn bacterial bloom I have going on.

FDNY911 Thanks reginald, I'm currently in the works right now of revamping the entire set up so I will start a whole new journal. Moving sucks.

Reginald2 Ahh, Moving is always such a pain and moving fish tanks, doubly so. I hope you get settled soon enough.

FDNY911 Hey Reginald. Yea I took down this tank because I moved. It's up again but I have a bad bacterial bloom and almost all of my hc died during transport. The wood also dried up and I need to soak it somewhere else now. I won't make the mistake of putting wood in this tank again without soaking it for longer or boiling it. Or both haha. Maybe in an

FDNY911 It was growing so well emmersed, slow, but growing. I thought with the Co2 the HC would thrive but it's been crapping out on me. Do I have enough light? I'm getting stringy green algea on the wood. Actually also a white one as well.

I added 5 rummy nose tetras and they crapped out pretty fast, they were in shock on the way from the LFS, don't know why, but I acclimated them for about 45- hour. Once in they started gasping for air and listing to one side then finally just laying on the substrate. Took then out and put then in my 45 and they popped back to life in about 5-10 minutes.

I think that the water was still saturated with co2? Even though it was about 15 hours or more since co2 was introduced into the tank. I don't want to believe that with 2 2217 at full blast, that there isn't enough flow. When the inline co2 is on you can see the mists from both sides slamming into each other and going all over the place. I had the out flows on the surface creating some noisy surface agitation and this morning both drop checker with new premixed fluid are showing slightly dark green. Its been 2 days, and still?

I threw in 12 ghost shrimps with the RNTs and they are fine, eating, no losses.

I don't know what's going on.

home grown I'm struggling with HC as well. I have rootmedic tabs as well as the liquid fertz. I have been using the liquid fertz for a week now and see very minimal growth.
