My struggle w/ BBA was solved w/ pressurized CO2 and lots of pruning. I've also heard folks here talk about spot dosing Flourish Excel. How'd you get rid of the Green Hair Algae?
Ludwigia repens. Common, easy to find. Heck, depending on where you are in the country, you might be able to visit a local pond or lake to get some. I know the stuff will just about take over my tank If I don't prune it regularly. But I've got injected CO2. It has slowed down a bit since I cut way back on ferts.No, i don't inject Co2. That's exactly what i need. What are some hardy, grow like crack weeds. I want out of control weeds.
Flourish is good for dosing Micros (from their site: Flourish™ is a comprehensive plant supplement for the natural freshwater aquarium. It contains a rich assortment of important micro elements, trace elements and other nutrients. These include calcium, magnesium, iron and other important elements that have been shown to be beneficial to aquatic plants. For macro element (NPK) fertilization, use Flourish Nitrogen™, Flourish Phosphorus™ or Flourish Potassium™ as needed.Well I've mentioned that i dose flourish, just maybe not enough. The gravel is enriched with laterite and root tabs. I don't think fertilizers are the issue.
dude. pressurized CO2 will NOT be innefective. it will be the best investment for your planted tank you will make aside from lighting. DIY is unreliable, pressurized is solid. But if you have a couple 2ltrs going it might be enough.Well I've mentioned that i dose flourish, just maybe not enough. The gravel is enriched with laterite and root tabs. I don't think fertilizers are the issue. Now I have reduce my surface agitation which I have read will keep more co2 in. DIY co2 is unreliable on this size of a tank. Fluorish excel, well I can't find it anywhere. Pressurized, I'm worried that it will still have no effect and that it will be money wasted. I first want to see the benefits of Co2. Also, I want to use a small coke bottle as the reactor, will the wrapper adhesive cause any problems?
