Algae because CO2 doesn't come on before lights?

Hey all,

Do you think I could have an algae problem because I don't stagger my CO2 timing with my lights coming on? Currently, they come on and off at the same time, but I think I need to change...

EI doesn't contribute to algae, so there's no reason not to start it.

I've let mine drop to 50psi before. It takes at least two weeks for it to drop from 850psi to empty, even at 5-6 bps for me.

Do floaters covering your tank reduce water oygenation?

Hi all,

I recently almost (came extremely close, there was a rasbora floating on the top like it was dead) gassed all my fish. However, I hadn't been messing with the CO2 rate at all. Instead, I...

No, this is not because of temperature fluctuations. This is because the tank is getting empty. I'm down to 500psi now and it started dropping from 800psi 2 weeks ago. I'm still going strong on the...

How long does your CO2 last when pressure starts to drop?

Hi all,

Just wondering how much more you get out of your CO2 cylinders when the pressure starts dropping from ~800psi. Everybody always says "once it starts dropping it's only a few more days till...

Fish are not showing any distress from CO2, nor have they ever done so. In fact, when I used to put new fish in there. I just leave the CO2 and lights off for a day, then turn it halfway the next day...

It's a 55G.

edit: Also, it's probably CO2 deficiency, as CO2 is hard and always look there first, like Tom Barr always says.

Thanks for the feedback. Light period is only 8 hours all the time anyway, so it's already there without cutting anything. I do 50% WC weekly, so hopefully that gets stuff out of the way pretty...

So recently, after doing a huge rescape 2 weeks ago that involved clouding up my water with detritus after pulling out ~40 deeply rooted crypts and a whole bunch of other plants, moving...

Don't worry about it. Otos aren't recommended as the first fish in the tank, as they are more fragile, but you aren't going to lose your biological filter.

I'd say if it's his first venture, just set up a regular WC schedule with a fixed percentage of the water changed each time. For example, once every 2 weeks, change 20%. That would work just fine for...

You should feed them like you would with other fish. Even when otos go in the main tank, you should feed them to supplement their algae eating.

Staggered CO2 and Lights Timing: Necessity or Nice-to-Have?

Just wondering what you guys all think of having CO2 come on 1 hour before the lights, like a lot of people seem to do. I'm going on 2 years now with the CO2 coming on at the same time as...

I have it parallel to the water surface but close enough to the top that it makes ripples. Same with a Koralia Nano on the other side of my tank.

FWIW, I have the AquaticLife dual T5HO fixture, and I am using just 1 bulb, 26" from the substrate, through glass tops, and I still inject CO2 or else the plants don't grow as well.
