Looks a bit like Rhizoclonium to me, too. I had an outbreak of this when I first set my tank up back in Sep. (The stuff I had was in larger tufts, though.) After trying I all I could to get rid of...

Yeah, go slow. And don't freak out when you go past when your drop checker is bright yellow (that's why I eventually just took mine out.) When you get the max CO2 that you can possiby get into tank...

If you wanted to use a shorter photoperiod, you could still use the seasonal table, but do something like this:

If Sun 060/-060 Then ON

This would turn lights on 60 minutes after sunrise and...

Hi Ron,

Not sure if this helps, but in my 120g, I ended up just taking my drop checker out of the tank (I ended up always being in the yellow). Ideally, you should start with ~1 point pH drop...

Mine is a bit faster than that in my 120g, but I'm pushing CO2 pretty hard. I pulled my drop checker out early on because I was finding that I was pushing into the yellow anyway. I go by total pH...

Welcome back! I recently also came back after being away from the planted tank hobby for about 12 years. A lot has changed, but many things are still the same!

Bingo! No matter how many times I tell myself, "I can go do this while the water is filling," it nearly always results in overflowing or at least nearing overflowing. I've learned my lesson - finally.

I wouldn't use a pH controller for CO2 since you really want a target a certain pH drop from CO2 OFF to CO2 ON to give you a consistent CO2 level. You will get drift in your pH over time, so if you...

If your pH level is consistent then you're definitely not gassing CO2 off sufficiently when the CO2 is not running. You should be getting (at least) a 1 deg change in pH between when CO2 is running...

Point is, you will never do a 100% water change by always doing 50% changes. You will approach 100%, but never reach it.
