nothing to contribute to the thread, but I have questions about the tanks you showed above.

Hoppy, I don't agree with that chart.

I have a tank, ca. 21 inch high, fixture on top of tank, 4 x T8 (with reflectors) and it's high light (if high light means not...

Hi there!

Sorry about the fish you lost.

Your plans do not seem far fetched or anything. This could become a very beautiful tank, a paludarium.

Your filter. A HOB might not be so good. You...

Hi there,
I think there is little what one could say to it, at least I find myself not really having any opinion on it.

What is missing for me is a picture of the tank, for example. And what...

Hi there,

The chlorosis is gone. The GSA are 98% gone.

Not sure what of all the things I changed brought on the improvement, though.

I'm happier now (but...

My CO2 is high, no problem there. Just wondered why the Glosso won't stay where I plant it. I do prune it. Does not change the problem and if it is the ambient light, I can do nothing there. Thanks...

Thanks for your sympathy. ;)

Glosso fleeing the light

Hey,

I think my problem is light related so I'm posting it here:

Glossostigma. I don't find it easy to get them to grow in a carpet. They like to grow only outward to the glass and piling up...

thank you for the frank words about Ca, Mg and Fe. Very educating, very interesting!

You ask what is different after water change?
Nothing much. Pearling is always quite strong (the...

Hello Tom,

so there is no reason for the 3:1 "rule" for Ca:Mg? As long there is enough of each? Alright.

Yes, I use KNO3 and KH2PO4.

I will try to get Co2 a bit higher. And will dose even...

Hello Tom,

very beautiful tanks!

So. This means it's not the KH/GH (D*mn. Or better: great, no RO).

Just to clarify this: the Ca/Mg ratio in the water is very skewed: 55 to 6 mg/l. Can this...

High KH = low Iron?

do you know if a higher KH/GH can cause nutrients absorbtion/blocking problems?

I think I know most plants love low KH (and are not really bothered by GH). But where does it really become a...

Hi, Sarge,
same here, I don't care for GSA as long as they stay away from the leaves. Pics, no, not really, I pruned yesterday and most is gone for the moment.
No idea even without pics?
