Maybe a T5NO dual bulb fixture... I think T5HO would put you out of low and more towards medium-high but its just a guesstimate.

I agree with most of what's been said. Raising the temperature to 84 usually begins killing off the ich, 86 is even better and an almost gauranteed treatment. Siphon off your gravel daily to remove...

LED floods are usually flat at the end... that might give you the lower profile you want. 5000k to 10000k spectrum would be fine.

You may need to turn it up more... but I don't know how big the tank is. Bubbles generally aren't the best way to gauge CO2 levels.

You can go for the Iron as prescribed by the instructions.

I was saying skip the AS... mixing it with dirt isn't the best idea. And i don't know if 1.5" is enough. I suppose its preference, but I have my tank at 3-4" at the thinnest, very easy to keep plants...

Could be CO2, NO3 or Iron. Probably not calcium, you would see twisted pale growth more yellow than white.

How's your CO2?

Don't quote me on this but I think that the lag time for CO2 diffusion is around 2 hours; it won't degas immediately.

Your two two weeks though is a little crazy... Was the opening covered?

Do you also dose phosphates at the same time? You might be complexing the iron and making it insoluble.

This ^^^ rarely happens haha. You'll need column ferts unless your substrate ferts are leaking out which I'm doubtful of.

Rocks or plastic dividers. The ones you'd find at HD to help section off rock or sand pits. Although you might end up buying a lot of it. Cut up some Tupperware maybe?

I've used Eco and floramax and I find that I like the cheap stuff like safetsorb better. As far as growing plants, youd do well with any of those as long as you properly fertilize.

You could shoot for 50-60 ppm but you'd really be wasting CO2. Start it up high and then turn it down until you see decreases in growth.
