I do have 20 lbs of eco complete.
Now this would explain why my lights were burning everything. Just the one bulb is putting me a little over 3 wpg when I was trying to run both, thats over 6 wpg.
Maybe I should reconsider co2. Lol.
1 week after rescape.
How do you like your Hydorflow? I was thinking about getting one but didn't get it because I was told it would agitate the surface and that's not good for CO2.
I just added my CO2 system (Hagen Nutrafin Natural CO2) a few days back and so far so good. I did add it to chamber 3 (return chamber) and so far so good. The ladder on the Hagen is ugly and I didn't want it in my tank so into chamber 3 it goes. If that doesn't work i'll lose the ladder and put the airline straight into the return pump. I think I will purchase a drop checker soon so I can see how i'm doing as far as CO2/PH in the tank. Also I might get a check valve for the CO2 system as my canister is below my tank level in the cabinet and I don't want it to take on water when it runs out of pressure. I was reading about somebody having that happen to them...yikes!
Its only been a few days with the plants but they seem to be hanging in there and maybe even starting to root...won't know for sure for a few more days but I'd say i don't see any die off and no real algae growth yet.
