I had a fair amount of algae growth when I first put my RCS in, so there was no need to supplement. Afterwards, I would throw the sinking algae wafers or a cucumber slice in for a treat. Mine loved...

The PH swing in my experience has been very neglible. Mine stops approximately 1 hour before the lights go out and comes on approximately 1 hour before the lights come on. As Hoppy pointed out...

Live and learn. I actually have a glass top for the tank, but I seriously dislike how much of the light it seems to filter out. The visible light from the front of the tank seems to be cut by half...

Great read. I have friends who've kept fish for years and never give a second thought to food. The flake food from Wal-Mart is all they ever feed them.

The confusion here is I think you meant you were holding off on dosing fertilizers, correct? In either case, I would continue the CO2 and begin dosing the fertilizers as well. Provide your plants...

I've had very good luck with the GelTek product for IP's with my fish in the past. In fact it was the only thing my Angelfish would eat when he had a bad case of IP's. The gel never seemed to...

A lot of people use pressurized CO2 inline with their filter as you're talking about. Another option would be a CO2 reactor such as the Rex Grigg's one.

Have to agree it's likely the Prime as it contains hydrosulfite salts and as you know, can produce a very strong sulfur odor. My first question would be, how much Prime are you adding into the water...

Just out of curiosity, why the need for the clear PVC, other then to watch the reaction? Aside from that, it offers no real benefit. As Nokturnal mentioned, by drilling the hole in the side of the...

I'm a big fan of tetras, specifically the neons as I chose many of my plants for the contrast in color. The different hues mixed with the red from my RCS and flashes from the tetras looks awesome.
