Just my 2c - non- nitrifying bacteria produce CO2. The level builds up at night and is used by plants during photosynthes. There's not so much CO2 in the water, something I have had to put up with,...

I think it's up to you if you want to break up the photoperiod. 6 hours is too little - try 8 hours and adjust for algae.

You can have too much light. The solution to that is to raise the light...

The water movement in the tank should be in the shape of a barrel on it's side (longer side), hopefully as long as possible. I think its true that the build-up of debris on the bottom of the tanks...

It may sound insignificant, but I suggest putting the filter in a corner for better tank flow.

I don't think there are any diseases of snails and fish- I'm sure we would have heard something about that. Personally, I think quarantining snails is overkill.

Jack,

I've read several threads about fungus on wood, and the answer has been that it will go away by itself. I find myself wondering if inconsistency of ferts, particularly in a high-tech...

The water seems very cloudy. The plants look ok. The bacterial bloom that I think is responsible for the cloudiness should eat through its food supply and disappear.

I need to retract at least half of my post about activated carbon. It was very one-sided, and I really don't know anything about activated carbon. It's just one of those issues that throws a switch...

Agree with Diana. You should use foam for mechanical filtration. If you can get two sizes (bubble size)) of foam, even better. A lot of people pull out the bio-wheel, maybe it impedes the water...

I had a Ruffled Sword, was using a Root Tab 1-3 months. When I used a potting soil substrate it went nuts, and when I started fertilizing even more so.

I do 50% water changes once a week and I don't see any mini-cycles. There are lots of bacteria in the tank and on the plants. Could you elaborate please, I really don't know what you're getting at.

My theory, which is called the In-situ theory, is that since there are no plastic filters in nature, the tank should do better with the bacteria on structures in the tank and not out in the filter.

I think the chlorinator idea is good. Personally, I just wash the sponges out in the sink and I don't have any biomedia at all. Don't particularly want bacteria in the filter.

That's a lot of nitrate (relatively speaking) but the plants should take care of it. You could reduce fertilizing nitrate a little.
