Thinking about dropping my ph. How low should I go. Also so I can measure my ppm I am thinking about buying a hydro pen thing any feedback?

Added 3 new red crypts.
And really want to buy 1 or 2 more rams there rad I know there's the potential of death. What would be safe. Any other fish capable of living in harmony or playful aggression ;)

Update tank shot

Ok in regards to the gbr eggs. It seems about a 1/4 of the eggs have white fuzzy fungus on them. That means they will all go bad now right? As the fungus will spread

GBRs laid eggs again. Same spot on the rock.

Also I am haveing some algae issues in my tank thinking its most likely to long of light exposure as im fairly lenient with the schedule. I haven't really been dosing ferts. I have dosed a couple times with potassium. As I noticed some holes in new growth. I have trace, flourish, excell, iron, potassium for ferts. I have a good amount of green algae on the glass. And have very tiny groups of fuzzy blackish algae on my thermometer an edges of some plant leaves.

nice tank

Sd760 10-08-2012 06:43 AM

Thanks guys. Really am having some issues with algae. Think it might just be everything settling down since I recently had to add a whole new filter and filter media. But I am not going to dose any ferts. Because I have been dosing excel trace and potassium spermatically. So wait it out and then figure out a good fert routine.

So I dropped my ph. It's 6.5 now. I think I'll see how that does for a week or so. I have alot of algae so I am trying to cut light down. I have a great clean up crew 3-4 Ottos 2 Siamese algae eaters and a bristlenose.
