Ok... I could use some "guidance"
I currently have a 29g Bolivan ram tank that is "planted". I have a pressurised system(that I basically had laying around, since it was on my old college kegerator...) and I have 70 watts of lighting.
My substrate is silica sand.
My questions start here. I am currently using my magnum 350 as my co2 reactor. I'm seeing a huge change from day to night in ph levels. Is there a cheap way to manage this...
Also, what would be a better alternative for my substrate? I have fertilizer tabs in there, but I know it could be better, I'm just lost. I've read so much that has contradicted itself that I'm completely lost.
Also, I know 70 watts isn't great, but what should I go for with my co2 levels concerning this lighting.
Sadly, and basically, I need someone to tell me what to do. I've kinda just added plants, don't know what most are, some water sprite, some anacharis, some of those cheap bulbs, but I want to take the time to make this a good looking, stable, happy tank.
Also, how about dosing? basic? cheap? complex? anything.
i know, you all get a lot of these questions, but in every forum I've attempted to get help, they've given me shotty advice then pointed me here, so I finally stopped just looking around here and sucked it up and decided to ask...
Thank you so much in advance.
