I think Glosso has a bigger root system, but I've never grown it myself.

I couldn't get it to work, but apparently the way you do it is by setting one channel, putting the date back by a day, and set the other channel, then put the date back. It's kinda complicated but...

Do you think 50% weekly is adequate? I do this every Tuesday.

I have a 350 litre. They seem active, colourful and healthy.

Funny you say that. I cut my macros down as the reading was high and the plants didn't like it at all. Now I'm getting loads of algae and plant issues. I'm thinking to bump it back up again now that...

I recently bought the Aqua Medic Reefdoser Evo 4 for EI dosing. I only use it for when I'm away as I prefer to do it myself when I'm not.

It works well but it's tricky to get it to dose alternate...

Advice needed

If you want to keep the Monte Carlo, I think it will benefit from at least liquid carbon.

Also, I can't see overly clearly but by the looks of it your substrate grain size seems quite large. The...

Do you have anything else in the tank? I wanted to put my amano shrimps with some juvenile rainbowfish. I was hoping that they would ignore them.

In my experience, unless it is a small isolated amount BBA needs to be physically removed...

That makes sense. It's fairly new, had it about a week. The leaves have stopped turning brown since I put a root tab under it.

The new leaves are green but longer and narrower as you said so I...
