ferts are bottled EI, dosed liberally, no easycarbo.This is new ground, as i'm not going the full EI route.

Tank looks smart, and although I'm unsure of the leggy, spare piece of Manzi on the right, I'm sure it'll look great once the plants have grown :thumbup:

What do you mean 'not going the full EI route' ?

sorry mate, i didn't see this. :oops:

Half the normal dosing. my lighting is not as intense as usual. and is quite high above the tank. I just don't need the high amounts. The nano has made me open my eyes slightly. I'm using a bottled EI product which really effective.

Re: Saintly's 'savannah dreaming'

Fantastic looking scape Mark.
The plant layout looks great, look forward to seeing it in a few weeks, but with not the full EI and a higher light will that make it much of a slow grower?
Also a wee favour, I am interested to see how the flow works, water movement and the like, just for my own learning. So any chance of a couple of images showing this at all please.
cheers, tel

Is that half your normal dosing or half the dosing as per NutriCalc for example? I'm back to square one with regards my ferts knowledge, I have another nano that I dose once a fortnight at best with one daily amount and the growth is great, but if I did that in my 125l or 28l then I'd have plants dying, algae everywhere :crazy:

Re: Saintly's 'savannah dreaming'

For anyone that can bare the load times, here's a short vid of the flow and co2.


some clips you'll see co2 going from left to right, that's where the co2 has come in from the left, hit the left side and travels to the right. co2 is in every corner of the tank. I'm also running 1 x korolia, which i raise at night for O2.

The HC pearls the full length of the tank, not just the bits in the middle.
