Update: I removed the stem from the tank and it was clear that the affected leaves were unlikely to recover. I removed them, sprayed the plant with H2O2, rinsed, and replanted. I saw a little of the...

Ditch the CO2? I thought CO2 was supposed to be helpful for the plants at any light level. Am I misunderstanding?

My tank has been running for about 5 weeks (here's a link with some pictures http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/tank-journals/170825-33gal-familys-first-tank.html).

Just an update on my window screening addition. I constructed the screen Saturday. The two layers of screening result in a significant reduction in intensity. I'm attaching a picture of the screen on...

Wow! Window screening! Why didn't I think of that? I was just in that section of HD yesterday looking at the lexan plastic sheets to see if they had lexan in 1/2" thickness (they didn't).

I haven't tried reducing to one bulb. I did reduce the lighting period from 8 hours to 6 and added the rest period. The reduced lighting period did seem to help with white thread algae (or fungus) I...

I'm not dosing any ferts. I'm guessing the only ferts I could buy locally would be Flourish or possibly some of the substrate tablets. If I start using these does that also require 50% weekly water...

Too Much Light?

I have a Fluval Glo fixture with 2 T5HO 24W bulbs mounted directly to the top trim of a Fluval 33gal tank. This places the bulbs 3-4" above the water surface. The substrate is perhaps 17-18" below...

I finally got it working through a lot of trial and error (and frustration). It seems for our water (which is hard and has a Ph of 8 out of the tap) we needed to reduce the amount of sugar by half...

Thinking about it some more, suspending the fixture from the ceiling is the easiest solution.

I wonder whether changing from the stock Fluval tubes to something else, or going from two tubes to...
