Aquari-sol

Has anyone used Aquari-sol in their planted tank? Guy at the fish store said it was safe for plants.

It's basically just copper (copper sulfate I think). Not entirely sure about the plants, but it will kill snails/shrimp.

It's safe for SOME plants and harmful to ALL plants if overused. If you are battling ick I suggest either removing all plants and inverts or removing sed fish to a hospital tank.

For last two night I have shut down the pump of my DIY reactor. I think my Co2 levels were too high at night. And now I am starting to see reduction in ich on my fish; fish are not as stressed out.

test pH first thing in the morning before your lights turn on, and then you'll know CO2 levels, and if there were too high and causing stress from rapid pH shifts.

I thought I read somewhere and according to Tom Barr, PH shift caused by Co2 does not harm fish??

Plus if I had to choose between too much Co2 and PH swing, I would choose PH swing. I tried using the airstone at night, but I was still seeing dead fish in the morning.

I think I will check the PH first thing tomorrow morning.
