Hi all and thanks for your advises.
I am only in my 7th month in aquascaping and I am relatively new to this hobby. Thought i would give up after the 2nd month but looking at how the plants grow and how beautiful the tank looks gets me going deeper into this hobby.
Let me tell you a little about my tank. Itís a 28liter or 7 gal. tank. I choose this setup because itís small and manageable as a newbie. It runs a diffuser type (not drip type) co2 because it creates very fine bubbles.
I have quite a number of fauna, 3 shrimps, 1 molly and SEA for algae. 4 tetras and 2 orange fishes (not sure what they are called).
Reason why I uses so many types of liquids is because some were recommended by the aquascape shop and some were findings from google.
I donít use RO water but tap water mixed with Biotopol (0.5ml every 2L water). I change about 6-8 litres of water every 3-4 days. And do a total clean up & larger water change every 2 weeks.
Ferropol is for my flora which I add in every week (4ml) and sometimes Denitrol for my fish health (0.2ml).
Recent, I read about excel flourish because my tank was attacked by little groups of black beard. I dose interval of 2-3 days (3ml). So far it is under control. *i think my lighting was too close to tank and run 8hrs a day. I have raised the height of lighting and only run 6hrs now.
For PH reducer is because there was once I did a PH test and my value was at 8. Not knowing what to do I purchased a ph reducer. Also I have Detoxol hoping it will maintain the overall water condition.
So with all these liquids / fertilisers, Iím not sure if Iím overkilling my tank therefore I am here to seek advise if there is a schedule I could follow without destroying the tank or maybe what I am doing wrong.
I have photos of my first month and my recent tank condition. Let me how am I doing as I have plans to move on to a larger tank once I am more familiar with this hobby. Probably a low and longer tank which I like the setup very much.
