N008 Help: close to 10w per G
So i've had my planted tank for a while now and i've put off getting help online for longer then I should have.
I have a 75 gallon tank. I'm currently running 250 HQI lights, and two 96PC the actinic blue or what ever it's called. I'm running co2 and doseing the tank.
I do weekly or bi weekly water changes. I do so many water changes becouse i'm feeding my fish 5+ times a day for growth.
I know, it's alot of light for the tank... but I got an amazing deal.
so here is the problem... I'm not sure how to test my tank to make sure i'm doseing right.. I have all the kits.
I would really like it if somone would just tell me what my lvls should be so that I have something to shoot for, and what I need to change to get there.
The other problem I have is with my filter, I have a fluval 304, and every water change I have to clean it or it won't flow. I'm assuming that if i get my lvls right, that the algee will be reduced. And that will reduce the number of times I have to clean my filter.
Edit: after searching the forum I found some good websites for what I need.
I still have a problem though
I have the API KH and GH test kits, and I lost the instructions. I know I just add drops untill the color changes... but anyone know what color it changes from too? I have problems seeing it.
