holy cow! my wanna be aquarium!
Yeah I can, before I tore it down I was getting down to about 5.9 or lower. I recently discovered the ph/co2/kh chart, and from what I saw I only need to drop by about .2 to achieve 30ppm co2 concentration. I've been toying with the metering valve the last few days and it's back up again because my drop checkers super yellow right now.That's not a very big drop in PH. Any way you can hit a full 1.0?
Yeah it's 4dKH fluid and the tank water has a huge of 4 as well. The ar is doing really well besides the older leaves which from what I've read are generally prone to algae. Oh, and since I did the tear down the Aromatica has gotten some really good color😉.The chart also shows degassed levels around 20 ppm, which cannot be right.
The yellow drop checker is good sign though, assuming the solution inside is 4dKH
Yep, think it's safe bet you just let the biomass out run the tank's resources. It's a lot more common issue than we tend to think, especially for high light tanksOh, and since I did the tear down the Aromatica has gotten some really good color��.
Good luck with the reboot! It's a beautiful start.Thanks a lot, here's how it's looking today. Waiting for it to fill in sucks.
Those are gold laser corydoras and the smaller red plant is Alternanthera Reineckii mini.Beautiful tank, before and after being redone!
What kind of cories are those? And what is the shorter red plant in the original tank?

Beautiful tank, wish I could get something like this going.Weekly update, everything is just clicking along. Looks like the MC is starting to spread some as it's still converting to a submersed form.
I would, but just can't afford the equipment. It's ridiculously expensive.Do it, you just have to dive right in to the deep end.
Co2 set up is the most costly part, you can get the lighting done on a budget.I would, but just can't afford the equipment. It's ridiculously expensive.

Any suggestions on good lighting for cheap?Co2 set up is the most costly part, you can get the lighting done on a budget.
