Thanks for the replies guys. Jdinh04 can you believe that i had that amazon sword in my 12 gallon. LOL , my fish were being slowly crushed to death, it look s a whole lot better in this tank. I will def. look into geting seom indica, i love the way they look and also want to try dwarf hairgrass in the front to create a bed of grass, does anyone know if this is difficult to do?
BSS, no i do not have a dosing strategy yet, i believe i can get a lot of my macromolecules from my tap water by doing 50/50 ro/tap. Once they are depleted i bought a fert called leaf zone it had iron and potassium. I might also make an order over at greg watsons, do you have any suggestions on what other ferts i should be using?
Jason, all the water you see in that 32 gallon tank is R/0, im thinking of mixing tap in there too so it is all ready and i cant put it in quickly using my pump, i will start off doing 50/50 and see how that does. Also i am using a ph adjuster for R/O units to keep the ph at a comfortable level, around 6.8. About adding KH, im not sure if i do , i have this solution that is supposed to add essential minerals back to r/o water. I do get funny readings when testing kh, maybe i need to research that area a little more.
Hopefully by this weekend, i will have more plants. I have an angelfish in my 20 gallon that is dying for some space!
btw here is my water specs
Ammonia & Nitrite : 0
GH: 8 (Medium-soft)
KH: 17 ( I think I am not testing this correctly)
