I have had luck getting rid of surface film using a combination of surface agitation and floating plants. Adding Amazon Frogbit really seemed to help and made the film almost nonexistent.

This may be a silly question, but can dry ferts go bad? I mean in the sort of "salt losing its saltiness" sort of way.

I'll be starting a new aquarium up again in November, and it's...

Pressurized CO2 would likely help provided more, and more consistent flow of, carbon. I would highly recommend you move away from a yeast based system.

You may want to try dry dosing ferts....

I don't really see any BBA in there, unless I'm missing it. Diatoms, maybe.

You may get some better diagnoses posting in the algae forum.

Wow! Wonderful set-up. Love how the roots of the Anubias hang down in certain places; really give the feel of a jungle, or maybe Spanish Moss hanging from oak trees.

Also love the Rummynose Tetras...

Good water movement can help decrease algae to an extent, but it's not a catchall. I would not place the diffuser directly below the powerhead. A reactor or diffuser inline with your filter outflow...

Sagittaria for background/low light?

Hi all,

I've never kept Sagittaria before, and I was wondering if the taller variety would be decent for a background area where the lighting would be fairly low.

All advice appreciated....
