20 Gallon Anyone?
I currently have a 20 gallon long heavily planted tank. It's really my first high light tank, so I'm a little new at this. Anyway, my plants are doing okay, but many have defficiencies or just aren't growing very well. Specifficly I am having most problems with E. Stellatus and Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba'. My tanks stats are:
68 total watts CF at 6500K
3- 2 liter bottles DIY co2
N-1/8 tsp KNO3 every other day
P-2 ppm via mono pottasium phosphate solution every other day
K-1/4 tsp K2SO4 every other day
50% water change every week
I cant get a good co2 reading, but it seems to be around 15 ppm which I know is too low, but I don't know how to fix it without getting pressurized, which I can affor yet. Does anyone have any suggestions, or would anyone with a 20 gallon post your stats on ferts and stuff? This would really help me out.
