Don't worry about removing any dead fish. The shrimp will take care of that. :-)

The folks at www.simplydiscus.com might disagree on the 29g thing... You might give them a try for a different perspective and some more information.

Well, do you have a heavy bioload? I ask because a wet/dry really isn't the ideal situation for a planted tank.

Wet/drys are great at rapidly converting large amounts of biological waste (mainly...

I am not sure on this, but the results with Excel and Glosso are iffy - it may not use carbon efficiently in that form. Glosso seems to be more dependent on CO2 than most plants.

It's worth a...

Probably any CO2 that you successfully diffuse in the sump will be lost, because there's a lot of surface agitation in a typical sump. Your best bet might be bubbling CO2 into the input of the...

I'd vote for putting them back. The stress of clean water and more space is pretty minor.

I just read the floating Java Moss thing. It's growing, and probably getting CO2 from the air? It's gotta be a C problem.

Hmm... But does that apply to BGA? If Glosso is unable to use it effectively, that could be providing an advantage to the BGA. Pure speculation, but worth considering. Maybe stop dosing for a...

The exploding yeast bottle thing is a pretty lame reason for not being able to grow Glosso, don't you think? :wink:

That's pretty much the score, though. If there's not enough light to require...

Could you be overdosing the Excel? I seem to remember there being doubts about whether Glosso was efficient at using C in that form... That could explain it's poor growth, etc...

Just a thought....

Hey, welcome!

I began my 20L nano-reef a couple of months ago - it's good to see that the pull is bidirectional. :-)

Someone in another thread mentioned that 40BR planted tanks were rare, so I thought I'd post some pics of mine. It's not aquascaped, and is currently a growout tank for some cichlids....

The 2x65 is an awesome lighting configuration on a 20L. It's probably the most WPG you can get in a single, off-the-shelf unit -- for any tank.

Well, actually, there is that 20" 96w (PowerQuad)...
