A while ago I posted some messages asking for help to remove hair algae,
well its be a wil and still I got problems.
I have increased my co2 (well am trying, but not really sucessful) and have virtually stopped all fertilisation. I did a severe prunning and got most affected leaves.
After I stopped fertilising for a long while, I noticed that the algae growth slowed down a bit.
There was like a very short fuzz of hair algae, and I added 1 drop of liquid fertiliser (aqua sonic daily grow) and boom, algae growing like mad.
My question is that even though I increased my co2 (added second diy bottle) my Ph is still 7.5 .It never changes! Going by calculations on Chucks page, my co2 is not higher than 15ppm! What could be preventing my Ph from lowering? I do have kitty litter substrate, and could that be the culprit?
BTW I added one of my cherry barbs in the tank, cause I read that rosy barbs like hair algae ~ and cherry barbs are very close relatives I hope they have the same appitite.
