still can't seem to figure out how to attach images (I know its been explained 1000 times, going to figure out the little html you throw in to make it work) but for now I'll just supply a link:
the tank is a basic ten gallon, DIY hood with a 36w AHsupply light kit.
I had a whisper 10 internal filter, but recently upgraded (cough pissed off cough) to a fluval 104 canister filter. since then I have been having serious GW and haze issues. slowly I think the thing is beginning to work after some tweeking. DIY C02 with a diffuser thingy from red sand that shoots little bubbles all over the tank, the bubbles are kind of annoying but I can get around 27ppm when the mixture is kicking (even though it doesn't last long)
flora: anubius nana, dwarf sag, hygro sunset, rotala indica (i think, maybe correct me on that) ludwegia reprens (combo of two varieties I think, acquired them at separate LFSs) glosso, chain sword, and bronze wendtii (bouncing back after major melt down)
fauna: 15 x black neon tetras, 1 x bumble bee gobie, 2 x oto, 3x amano shrimp, 1x mystery snail (truly a mystery)
I haven't really perfected a ferts regime, I've been a little all over the place with that, any help would be greatly appreciated. with all the algae issues I've been laying off the ferts quite a bit. a bit here and a bit there, probably kind of a bad idea to be inconsistent
water parameters: ph=6.5, kh=2, gh=12, ammonia =0, nitrite=0, nitrate=5 (been trying to get the nitrates up higher, but have been doing constant big water changes to fight haze and GW, any thoughts on this)
thats it for now, any comments/help on the aquascape, photo technique, ferts, everything, anything, I would love it
