Sorry must have missed this oscar, i trimmed mine down low and seems to recover fine then replanted the tops and there growing fast and tanks looking great by the wayHI Guys,
Does Hygrophila Siamensis 53 B, take well to being cut back to around 2/3 inches from base?!?
At the moment i only trim the top stems, growth is good with ample side shoots.
I've kept a few different Apistogramma spp. and I've always changed about 10% a day. I've never had any problems with this.What sort of water changes do you do with them, as I was reading only about 15% per week?
Hi Oscar, what is your final stocking list for the tank? In my AS600 I have 12 ember tetras, 8 green neons, 8 otos and 2 honey gouramis. I’m pretty sure this is heavily overstocked, but the tank is so heavily planted I hardly get to see any of the fish half the time. I’m probably going to have to give a few fish back to the lfs...
I do 50 percent weekly, is in tandem with what’s needed with using aquascaper all in one ferts.. I’m hoping to get a female apisto for my Male, as female jumped out a while ago..
Well the ultra life finally arrived last week. Dosed as per advised and it really works, at least a 75% vanished from soil surface....hopefully over the next few days it completely has disappeared.
As said above i took out extra pump, but added it again as when giving this product you have to increase circulation/ so the 1600 is more than capable of that.
I dont think it was the extra flow that made it appear in first instance, when you google/ it can be a multitude of things that can cause it/and as said i do keep up with maintenance etc.....
Okay signing off.... Ill update end of this week..AND a big thanks to CooKieS, for recommending it
my dad’s 180liters tank was literally infested with cyano, after 2 weekS of treatment with ultra life, it’s all gone...and it never came back, that stuff is very effective.
Unfortunately no photos were taken. I would describe it as in early stages, was creeping over tropica soil, slowly spreading. It was also in patches growing on my juniper wood/and elephant skin rock. I would siphon it off, but would reappear/as quickly as i removed. It would be light green/blue tinge to it, if left I’m sure would have been on mass/as you say sheet like.......My journey below on the dreaded BGAHi @oscar
It is good to get feedback about Ultralife BGSSR directly from someone who has put it to the test. And it appears to have been a great success for you. It was just a month since you first mentioned signs of BGA/Cyano. Did you happen to get any photos of the Cyano so we can see how bad it was? Or, can you describe it? Had it formed blue-green slimy sheets? Had you tried to physically remove it using a siphon, tongs or other tools?
