Importance of Flow
Just something that has always bothered me and I figure someone can answer
but is flow rate truly important in our tanks?
Ive done it countless times....I can put down a layer of soil, cap it with sand, plant a single plantlet (ive done it with hairgrass, glosso, HC, MM and a few other plants) in a vase...and put it on a window sill in full sunlight
come back in a few weeks and I have an EXPLOSION of growth and 0 algae
I can take those same trimmings and move them into my high-light, med-light, low-light tank and have it over run with algae
...so how can I go from high light, high ferts, 0 CO2, 0 flow and have 0 algae issues...but go to a tank thats high/med/low light, high/med/low ferts, high/med/low CO2 and high/med/low water flow and with good water change regimens and just have problems...basically the light determines the speed of the algae take over
what am i missing here?
