so, this is my setup!
Lights- two 15W 6500K CFL (on 8 hours a day)
Substrate- Pool filter sand (no good.)
Ferts- Flourish + Flourish Excel (i dose excel every day as per the instructions, and i dose Flourish 2 times per week)
i have only had the CFL's for 4 days now, before i was running junk stock lights in my hood. i am already noticing a difference in my Fissidens Fontanus moss.
i have a bunch of Algae growing on my glass, this started before i got the CFL's, i also have light dark green algae growth on some of the leaves of some of the plants in the tank,
i was thinking of setting up a DIY Co2 unit tomorrow, would this help with the algae?
Now my substrate.... i wasnt originally going to do a planted tank with this tank, so i just put the sand in, i have leftover ADA aquasoil i would LOVE to get in there, but i have nowhere to put my shrimp, and my favorite fish my freshwater gobies while it goes through the whole leaking ammonia stage and probably a cycle.... i have a 33 gallon setup but its full of Apistogrammas and dont want them to kill the fish from my 10.
any thoughts on anything?
