Flow is adequate, 500gph from circulation pump plus 300 gph from a canister filter. Plants sway back and forth but are not being blown around. Degassed tap is pH 7.8 and my co2 control is set to 6.8. Dkh of tank is 6 and drop checker is lime greenish to yellow. If I set my contoller to 6.7 then the fish start acting funny. According to the chart that puts me at 29ppm. I just set my timer for 7 hours of light per day. It's almost like the plants are getting to much light and are compensating by putting out new growth that's pale. Yesterday I was gonna add another dual t5ho fixture but thought better of it thinking that my photoperiod was to long. I dose with fleets twice weekly for phosphate kno3 twice weekly csm+b twice weekly. 50% water change weekly adding equilibrium because we have softwater. Dgh is kept at 6. I'll give the shorter photoperiod a try and see what happens in a week. Thanks guys. Keep the thoughts coming if you think there is something else to try.
