Is you're C02 DIY or Pressurized? if it is DIY, it will be your downfall running 4x65, I would not recommend it, it will only cause you grief.
1. If I let my water changing water sit for 24hrs to remove chlorine how do I lower the Ph to 7.0 or can I ad it as is, I usually do 40-50% changes 1/wk.
2. I have a moderatly heavy planted tank (adding dialy) should I go ahead and turn the second set of lights on all day when the fets get here
3. Should I do the Wolfenxxx recommendations for dosing? I'm not nearly as planted as a lot of guys.
4.Green water started again yesterday, not in full force yet but starting. I have been reading alot on this sight about all of this but I'm still not sure what to look for to know what is out of balance. That's why q 2 & 3 were asked?
I fought gw a couple months ago and nearly destroyed by lower light plants with blackouts and chemicals. So I would rather balance things out and wait than destroy my plants. If I'm right gw is just ugly and not destructive. Any recommendations
1. Add it as is, your water params look good, straight from the tap to the tank, add dechlore, you will be fine...
2. No, wait till you have the tank running good and clean, plenty of plants, ferts, C02 optimized, you need more plants.
3. Yep, follow the regime in the sticky, if you follow that, you will not be limiting any nutrient, the tricky part, is for "you" to learn the C02/light relationship.. very important, to much light, not enough C02=algae, Everytime! even if you have KN03, P04 in abundance.
4. Green water can be a biatch if you do not have access to a UV or Diatom filter...
I induced greenwater on my 46g a month or so ago, just because I could, I do have a UV and a Diatom Filter, I plumbed up the UV turned it on, changed about 80% water then ran the Diatom, tank was pristine the next day, been that way since, easy to rid if you have the tools, but if not, keep feeding the plant's and be patient.
