I probably will. I was hoping to get away with the liquids, as I've done the powder stuff with my reef and it's a RPITA.

EDIT--Yes, it was the phosphorous additive.

Is iron available as a dry...

I've been having a nightmare getting my phosphate levels up. I've been dumping Seachem's stuff in for a week now, and the levels are staying VERY low--around 0.03ppm. In my reef tanks, I had to pay...

Cool, I'll look into that. The reason I was asking about copper is that one of my friends here at work has some.

Any ideas on how to get this stuff off of my anubias? I've used a turkey baster to get it off of most of the plants, but it is practically grafted into the anubias leaves. It looks horrible.

Flourite dust storm--will it ever end?

In all my years of aquarium experience (I'm new to planted tanks, but I've done FW, SW, and reefs for years) I've never had anything like this. The dust from the flourite just keeps coming and...

I had a friend check it out, and he thinks the same thing that I do--it's just not fitting, so the pin is not connecting. Is there anything I can do other than return this thing?

Should there be any threads still visible on the tank (the male part)? It seems like the tank isn't screwing all the way in.

The only reason I'm asking is that it seems like the pin may not have reached the tank, and therefor the gas wasn't released. I thought maybe lubricating it might allow me to tighten it some more. ...

Does anyone know if maybe you need to lubricate the threads on the regulator? That's the only thing that I can think of--that maybe it didn't screw in all the way. It seemed to be in pretty well,...
