I have had the same issue with Tetra heaters. Same idea, bargain brand, seems like a good idea. Took 3 times of failing before I got the message. Luckily, the only time I had livestock, it failed...

You may be right there but even the plants that are right at the top don't color up so I am not sure it's the whole story yet but the UV is on now so we will see how that changes things.

What I am not sure about is why it clears up to crystal clear water, just to do it again. 4 times now, but each gets worse. I do need to do the basics though, clean the substrate, I just cleaned...

Looks great so far. How long are you running each bank on your fixture? I am having trouble getting much color, not blaming the light per say but I have not found many who use it. Mine is mounted...

I did start adding GH booster when I switched over to RO, but I did not use it before, which still had the issue, I can't say that would eliminate that issue but it did occur before making the...

I haven't used it as I am not the biggest fan of wood. Not only can you get this at craft stores, you can also find it at larger flower shops as well. It's actually a lot more available than one...

Do you have a few places you frequent. I have only found one type of stone I really like up here in Concord that looks decent and doesn't effect water parameters. Most either look great and don't...

Ironically, I kind of did that at the same time too by ditching my UV and inline heater at the same time, then again by cleaning my filter about 1.5 weeks ago. I also kept the water level...

I have an established 60P, setup around September of last year. The basics are, it's about 18 gallons, has an Eheim 2215, no heater, high light, CO2 injected. The reason I don't run a heater is I...

I don't test TDS so I don't really know about that. What I do know, these tanks can be fairly unstable for the first month or two so I would definitely wait. If you aren't pulling up plants much, I...

The air has to come from somewhere. I would suspect the intake first, as you did, next the gasket between the canister and the head/pump.

As for the spray bar, I don't recall if the 2236 has...
