Or be sure you have lots of plants jammed into the tank. I run the same setup. After a hard prune I usually only run one lamp until the tank fills in. When I ran two I got algae even w/ EI and presurized CO2. And be really careful you don't run out of CO2. That happened to me and I am still battlling the BBA.130W is generally too much light for a 20 gallon, regardless of CO2 setup. Is it a 2 X 65W fixture? You'd be better off running 1 bulb at a time, each for half of the photoperiod.
OK, terrific.aquanut415 said:cause i have 180watts over my ~18 gallon tank and it looks awesome, wanna stand in my living room?
It's the same thing. No conversion is needed.How would i be able to messure if i have 30ppm of CO2. I am familiar with the PH-KH CO2 ratio chart but that is measured in ML/L. Is there a method of conversion?
And things can/will go downhill extremely fast if you slack off the care and feeding for a couple of days.
thats what I run over my 20 L. and it is just fine and the plants have wonderfull coloration.Please elaborate on why you think my statement is completely false.
No problem. read thru my 20gal journal and you can see from start to finish how my tanks evolved.Thanks for finally answering my question black. I have not yet seen any "green Sludge" in my tank. Yet for a while i did have a rigorous battle with hair algea witch i think has finally dwindled to an end for the most part. What kind of pressurized system would you reccomend?
And as for the haters on the 130watts in a 20H my plant growth is beutiful and the bright light is gorgeous.
