  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I'm all about aesthetics so I'm getting some fancy bottles to put my ferts and stuff in. Everywhere I look online, I see liquid carbon products (flourish excel, easy carbo) are in opaque bottles. Does liquid carbon break down in sunlight? Should I get an opaque bottle for it? Sorry if this is...

    So its been almost a week since I planted my tank, my amazons and moneywort are doing great (despite some melting). The only plant that seems to be struggling is my java moss.

  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got a batch of Crystal Black Shrimp for my heavily planted nano tank after it had been cycled and the water parameters were perfect. The shrimp did great for over a week as I was slowly introducing fertelizers. Seachem Iron, Potassium and Flourish didn't seem to bother them at all. This...

  9. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I just got a 2 gallon bottle of Metricide 14 (1.5% glut) and I calculated if I normally doses 5 ml Excel in my 55 gal I would dose about 2.9ml Metricide (2.6% glut). I just want to make sure my calculation is correct and I'm not under or overdosing. Thanks
