So evidently plants like injected CO2... who knew?
2 weeks after installing CO2 system, and everyone is reacting well - lots of runners off the DHG, new leaves on all the bacopa stems. S. repens a little slower - it seems like they might need a little shade - the ones under the bacopa and crypts seems to be fuller and greener for some reason.
Put 4 amanos in (finally found them locally) - they are fun to watch
A little change-up in stocking (made the mistake of buying original fish from a not-so-good LFS - most died off, just weak fish, as the rest have been fine, although I don't rule out the tank being not quite settled yet after cycling) - mostly just the cories and long-fin zebra danios.
NO3 is starting to drop rather than rise during the week, as is P, so started dosing 2x/week - enough to keep them @ 20 & 2 respectively. Still dosing trace, iron and K in proportionate amounts the next day.
Bump: Yes, I know there's algae on the back & side glass - made the mistake of putting the tank a little too close to wall, so I can't get the magfloat back there... need to get a scrubber with a handle.
