I read that surface scum is made up of organic molecules like amino acids and proteins. A 50% water change has made a big difference for me in the past.

At first I was going to tell you that CO2 and high light needs both macro and micro ferts, but you're using CO2 Booster or Excel. If you want to do ferts, EI (Estemated Index) method makes sense to...

Hi. First question is, my Ruffled Sword's leaves have been getting very large and tall for a 10 gallon tank. Is it possible to prune the older leaves without harming the plant?

E. Tenellus (Pygmy Chain Sword) is not exactly like a lawn but it's low and grows fast, propagating by underground shoots to form new plants.

My guess is the light is low to low-medium. Like the idea of using lamps - I'm using brooder reflectors with CFLs - you would neeed about 2x 8W, depending on the reflectivity of the lamps. ...

I wonder what drilling a few holes in the output would do? Also, extending the intake tube would reduce the flow somewhat.

The 20 L is a low tank - about 12" high like the 10 gallon. But that's alright - you won't need quite as powerful lighting as a deeper tank. OIC, you're talking about light levels

I fed my fish a while ago. I have 2 corys so I feed sinking pellets too. I just saw a crowd of MTSs mobbing a half-pellet on every possible surface. Maybe they're very hungry.
