Hah. Love the enthusiasm. The reveal will be October. The anticipation is the best part!Yeah but what I wanted was a picture of the plants and the lights all in one. Is that possible
They were off Amazon. Cant remember the brand but they were from overseas. If you dig back through this journal a few pages you may be able to find a link.Which brand of stainless pipes are you using? Are you happy with them?
I just bought some off of Amazon recently and was a little disappointed in the finish around then bends. Not terrible, but could be better. I agree with you on the holders.They were off Amazon. Cant remember the brand but they were from overseas. If you dig back through this journal a few pages you may be able to find a link.
I do like them from a maintenance standpoint except for the plastic holders. Wish it had suction cups on the side as the plastic is in the tank and makes it harder to clean around and I have to clean those brackets as well. Performance wise, I think my ADA Lily is much better as far as the outflow pattern the intake is about the same as my CO2 Art glass skimmer pipe.
All in all I am happy enough to stick with them. I would like to look at getting a stainless steel pipe set that had suction cups down the road. I know Seachem just released some.
Thanks. Glad to share.Mot, your tank is awesome, thanks so much for posting it. I'm curious as to what camera and lens you are using to take these great pictures?
Fantastic thread. I have a question about how you efficiently measure and dial in the CO2 levels in your tank. Do you have any tips on that subject? to share with us mere mortals?
I use a hanna alkalinity checker and a CO2 probe and calculate the approximate CO2 value. This gets me in the ballpark. From there i watch the plants and fine tune. I think that flow through the tank is as important as the CO2 concentration. Also I believe that CO2 mist is beneficial in addition to dissolved CO2.
Hope that helps.
Yes, you understand correctly. KH or dKH is the measurement reading of alkalinity.Thanks. Could you elaborate on how you are using the alkalinity checker? I know how to use a KH/PH chart to figure out the amount of CO 2. Would this be a similar approach? Or if you know of any literature where i could learn more about this, that'd be awesome too.
Or am I missunderstanding this and the alkalinity checker measures KH (alkalinity=KH)??? That'd be amazing. I'm still a noob
