  1. Algae
    I set up a new 30 gallon about 2 months ago and it's been going pretty well, most plants are doing really well and have grown incredibly fast in the last few weeks. Still having some slight issues with my repens, lost more than 100 of the 150 I initially planted. Good news is that the ones that...
  2. Plants
    Hi all, I've lurked here a fair amount but I've got a couple of things that have me scratching my head, so here's my first post. I'll start off with loads of detail and then try to summarize at the end. Feel free to read the end first and go back to the paragraphs for more detail. Tank details...
  3. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hey all, I have been having issues with my plants up taking the ferts that I am dosing. I have been changing the amount I have been dosing every two weeks to see if I get any changes with the plant health, for the EI calculation I have been using Rotala butterfly. Initially I was dosing what was...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all, I'm trying to respond to an algae problem in our 40 gallon planted community tank while keeping our Amano shrimp and nerite snail happy. The shrimp seem to hate (as in: die from) Flourish Excel so we discontinued that. We have an Aquaray GroBEAM 600 Ultima LED light that we'd like to...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have recently begun the processing of upgrading my small 10 gallon tank to a 20 gallon tall tank. I decided I wanted to try out a planted tank with the new setup.

  7. Low Tech Forum
    Hi All, I think I am posting controversial topic here. As I had shown in mine tank setup, http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showthread.php?t=929361 Once the terrestrial plants grew up, they will be very hungry and will start to strip the water of nitrate, my aquarium plants are starving and...
  8. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    So after installing a super bright LED lamp, my plants began to bubble. I was glad. Now they are developing symptoms consistent with potassium deficiency. Stunted growth, tiny holes in leaves and the presence of Green Spot Algae. I've looked everywhere and I couldn't find a source of potassium...
  9. Low Tech Forum
    When doing a new tank do you put these down first, or do you put the substrate down and then push these in every few inches? How many does a 20 gallon high typically use?
  10. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    2 Part question: 1. I bought Ferts from a local hydroponics store. They gave me Celated trace element that has copper in it. I know that Copper is a no no. Does Flourish Searchem do the same thing as my trace mix? 2. How much DIY Co2 is enough for a 50 Gal long? I have 1 nutrafin tank running...
