While that is an amazing compilation of data, it's not exactly what I'm looking for. I'm not in the least surprised at the performance of the coralife (did you mean Catalina? There isn't, to my...

Right now I'm trying antibiotics. I'll see how that goes first before nuking the tank (which I am considering). Nothing in the tank is particularly sensitive, so hopefully that will help.

Yup, stuff's still in the tank. Looks like some of it managed to survive on the lower leaves of my Limnophila aromatica. Short of spot dosing every bit of it in the tank, what options do I have?

Tank is looking much better. For 5 days, I dosed 1.5 mL H2O2/gal directly to affected areas, and let it sit 5-10 min, and then turned on a Koralia powerhead. I let the tank circulate for another 10...

If I loose that plant but beat the algae, that's acceptable losses; this is war.

It's hard to tell whether the algae is continuing to grow. If I had to pick between growing and not growing, I...

The plant that lost some leaves was Hyptis Lorentziana.

It usually starts about 1-2 sets of leaves down from the top of stem plants and soon after leaves reach full size on crpyts, sagittaria, etc.

Dosed the tank yesterday according to what Tom described. Should I be spot dosing the H2O2 or distributing it throughout the tank 'crop duster' style?

I should also note that a few of the leaves...

I think that it's more along the lines of the low pH doesn't allow the carbonic acid that does form to ionize, thereby forming bicarbonate and a proton (which makes the water more acidic). But you...

I'm not worried about the pH, I'm worried about the very high levels I have of CO2. Probably pushing 70 ppm.

I'll dose the peroxide tonight.

Is this quickly compared to normal canister or compared to a normal filter for that size? I was basing the design partly on AC filter trays which have a similar filter area.
