    Plant Leaves Falling Apart! With Pics

    i would imagine that most ppl on here will tell you the lighting is too high to be running without the aid of co2. what is the lighting cycle on for? possibly remove the reflectors and add some floating plants to cut down the amount of light getting into the tank. water changes in a non co2...

    Naturally add co2?

    how is he mocking you???! and yes you can argue they are not expensive, i have a 2nd hand regulator and a fire extinguisher. £40 total plus a bit extra for diffuser and tubing. don't bother with a filter either they are sometimes pretty expensive and hardly can be said to be pretty! :crazy...

    Symptoms of plant adaption to higher CO2?

    look at the flow. if you are sure the co2 and nutes are at the level required by the given lighting, then flow is all that is left to cause issues. have you tried measuring co2 levels in different parts of the tank?

    Hi-fi/speaker question for the techies

    the richer sounds shop in bristol has a demo set up with ipod dock and cambridge kit. if you want a decent quality sound at the very best price this would be the route to go down. and i concur with the other guys, just stereo for music, more speakers for films.

    Ammonia and Nitrite problems

    so you are still adding ammonia???? maybe thats why its showing on a test kit? i think its probably good for the plants rather than bad, some ppl add a form of it as a fert. but is one trigger for algae in a tank. so why add it? plant heavily add fish early.

    Ammonia and Nitrite problems

    could it be that the test is not giving you accurate results? if there is anything leaching ammonia will the bacteria colony multiply very quickly to deal with extra small amounts? when you first put the fish in the ammonia levels will rise at some point chances of you measuring this at the...

    has anyone read this? (sears-conlin article on algae)

    I concur. Your posts have been interesting and informative. Its good to have differing and varied points of view and opinions.

    has anyone read this? (sears-conlin article on algae)

    i dont really agree with this. suggesting ppl get ridiculed here for using differing methods is a little over the top i feel. while some are strong in their convictions and wish to try and educate others and dispel some of the myths, it's not a case of ppl pushing one method only. it does...

    BBA but not on plants, means?

    bad flow could be a big factor. 10x would be a recommended turnover on this forum.
