Well, I finally found out all that's wrong with my tank.
I got in my test kits for Nitrate and KH a few days ago. I used them last night and guess what?
NO3 = 0
CO2 = 1.5 PPM, according to aquabotanic.com's CO2 chart
I'm still waiting for my Phos test kit to come in, but I'm pretty sure it's going to test zilch as well. My big issue at this point is CO2.
Currently, I'm dosing Fluorish Excel everyday at the recommended amount. I've also got a Hagen CO2 unit running. The tank volume is around 93 gallons. I know neither process by itself would do much good, but I was hoping that w/ both processes, that CO2 would be at a higher amount
Anyhow, I guess this at least gives me a starting point from which I can begin fixing my tank. I already ordered the N-P-K and micro mixes from Greg Watson, hopefully they'll come in by Friday. I suppose the next step would be getting a pressurized CO2 system.
In any case, from what you see here, would you guys say that CO2 is my main problem? Or the lack of nutrients? Currently, I've got both cyano and hair algae in my tank, though it appears the hair is dominant. The only plants that I can see actively growing are the anacharis and the rotalla indica. My swords are just hanging on, but the babytears and crypts are either dying or losing lots of leaves.
Thanks for all the help!
