When my tank first started...
Now, one month later
My plants look horrible and I think the growth is stunted, leading me to believe that my CO2 levels are inadequate, but every time my dropchecker displays a green hue, my fish swim around like mad and are appear to be suffocating. I'm not having that at all.
I also have trouble getting the CO2 to leave the water at night, it seems like the levels rise even after my solenoid shuts off. I now need to use an airstone...also notice some BGA
Just trimmed the plants on Saturday
Lighting 1 54 watt 6500K, 1 54 watt 10000k, good refelctors, 6 hours a day
CO2 delivered via pressurized inline diffuser. CO2 kicks on an hour and a half before lights turn on, yet adequate levels are typically never met untill an hour or so before the lights turn off. CO2 turns off an hour and a half before the lights go off.
Please help me point out my flaws, thank you. I need all the help I can get.
