Sunlit Co2 Management
I have written a few times about my “incomparable” (that is how I named it) 250G sunlit- from top- aquarium. I reset it this year and it has been re-commissioned from 15 March 2007. The stats are it has 150W X 3 MH 10000K, 40W X 5 Florescent light to supplement sunlight, DIY CO2 from my Mad Hatter system which uses nearly 100 L DIY fluid, my recipe and can be shut off at night (more about it elsewhere when I get to finally stop tinkering with it), it filter system is UG, (wrote about my powered UG system which uses only 1/3 of the floor from the unplanted front before) the outputs are uprights ending in the rear corners with a bottom cutoff 1.5L pet-bottle which I use as my CO2 reactors.
Incomparable is a community tank (tetras-rainbows-barbs-kulhis totaling about160 fishes), planted with about 21 varieties of plants.
This is my first monsoon and I am having problems with my CO2 management with cloudy sky giving me a very variable light. Has someone faced similar problems and has some tips for me? I am new to CO2, experience starts from 15 March 2007.
If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
