Christopher's 12 Gal Long
Hey guys after letting BGA destroy my last tank I have cleaned out and am reattempting this 12 gal long setup. I am running ADA substrate, eheim 2213 with glass lily pipes, current sat +, a powerhead, and chihiros doctor mini (shrimp). Now my setup consists of seiryu stone with a carpet of DHG (which I DSM'ed for 3 months) and some stems of AR mini. My intense v2 paintball reg cannot hold a steady bubblecount so I have a GLA SS-mini paintball reg on the way. I also will be getting a koralia nano to replace my powerhead as well as some stainless steel lily pipes.
Now I set this up 9/1 and as of 2 or 3 days ago I have noticed some cyano/BGA coming back to haunt me. It seems to be in a low flow area hence the powerhead upgrade. I also will be dosing ferts the second I get my new regulator. In addition to the mechanical parts I have ordered, I am expecting some erythromycin to help me with this bacteria. I did some reading and found that many have had complete success in eradicating their tank of cyano with this product. Will post some pics of the algae later tonight.
