I have a 210 gallon, I don't have enough plants in it as I pulled a lot to save them from the algea and put them in other tanks.
I have sunteks, 2 of them at 6 bulbs each 54 watts. Right now I only use 2 bulbs on each unit to drop the light level. I started this about 3 to 4 weeks ago after a black out period. So about 216 watts around 9 hours a day.
So K is any kind of potasium?? I get confused with the K K+ Ko2 etc.
I have r/o, eco and about 26 half dollar sized angels, a couple picca cats, 5 corries and 3 big angels. This is a bit overloaded but it has only been about 3 weeks. The new tank is coming and that number will be decreased a bit and angels shifted around in the new tank and the other tanks.
I got the larger wattage of lights for possible future co2. Right now I am not ready for it. With the new tank coming the two tanks will be centered under the hanging light fixtures so each get the light on one side of the tank until I save up enough to get another set.
Since you recommended no additives to keep the water soft for the angels, just the flourish for calcium and trace minerals, do you mean no flourish and no excel?? Or no potasium?? Confused
