So this is a journal for my tank, the tank has been running from 2017 till now i had a lot of ups and downs with this tank and the bigest was when i had to move and now i need to move again at the end of this month.
Im from South Africa so bear with me, my English is not that good lol.
120 x 45 x 46
Microbe-lift bloom and grow
Dophin c1000 (i added two wave makers as well for some extra flow)
Diy fire extinguisher
No bubble counter
Ista 3 in 1 diffuser
Co2 comes on 2h before lights come on
Ph drop is about 0.9 before lights come on
Co2 goes off 45min before lights go off
5 x 30w led floodlights with 2 extra 18w t8 led tubes
Photo period is 7h from 3pm to 10pm
I did run 4 floods when i started the tank but struggled to grow monte carlo so i added another one and the led tubes.
Kno3 : 7ppm 3 times a week
Kh2po4 : 1ppm 3 times a week
K2So4 : 5ppm 3 times a week
Caso4: 17g at water change
Mgso4: 12g at water change
Used to be csm+b... Had alot of issues with it, leave curling, deformed new growth especially with ammania gracilis (man this plant just kills me, seems it wants water with nothing in it lol)
So then i switched to a agricultural trace mix that is very very concentrated, copper is crazy high so i used copper as the proxy and add fe gluconate to add some extra iron.
Dosing of the agricultural trace mix is 0.1 to 0.15ml per day and every second day i add 1ml of fe gluconate. I dose the micros at lights on when the ph is low due to co2.
Custom micros will be mixed as soon as my stuff arrives that i ordered.
So on to the photos....
