    So, I am always looking at new stuff and picked up a bottle of Azoo Aquatic Plants BioPro. Has anyone tried it?

    Never heard of it. But that does not say much. Lol. Is it a fert?

    Its actually a bacterial supplement that is supposed to work kind of like seachem pristine and additionally has something to help cause roots to grow.

    It looks ugly as Heck when added to the tank but about four hours later tank is clear. But I have to trim a look bad lol. Going to try for a month or two and see if I see any differences

    Kinda skewed it though... Added some matrix by seachem ad a test too. Lol.

    Hmm. Bacterial supp...sounds interesting. We or my loving husband let me purchase a 150 gallon and we are going to try planted. Will file this in my Plant folder. Thnx.

    I'm just using excel and flourish right now. I'm still struggling with light parameters too. This hobby has changed exponentially since I last tried it.

    What type of lighting and plants are you going for? Lighting a 150 can be a nightmare for anything but low light... Though there are options.

    Need to get your husband and my wife on the same page. Mine is like... Another tank? Love her though.

    Lol. Mine is a dollbaby. I am headstrong. Stubborn. A brat. He tolerates me fersure.

    He said. Ok. Got your 150. ( I was expecting 2 75 or one 125..)...so. 2 of those nano tanks gotta go

    And yes. Low light. Maintenance. For sure. I am into enjoying my tanks. Not working my rear end off to maintain something I cannot do well.

    I do like the idea of spot lights with special focus plants..plants here and there

    I've been cruising the the thrift shops for lights. Is it ok to modify. Use just "normal " office clamp like lights and out those cfl lights in them .

    Lol. Don't judge. Tank looks horrible fe1af31cbbbb14a954709f4100154f5f.jpg

    Office clamp and work clamp are fine. Just make sure you do the drip look with the power cables. Also try and find high power LED 6500k color lights for them.

    This is a super comon thing... Don't think of it as odd. A lot of big plant people get all their lights from home depot or Lowe's and ONLY use clamp lights. Heck, I am planning four ultra low budget shrimp breeders... They will be clamp light as well.

    Oh you might wanna check out some DIY CO2 as well. Cheap and efficient.

    Yea. My better half set up a diy co2 years ago. Am sure we will try it. Also we are doing a refugium for filter.

    Can I post a pic of my light bulbs, I got. Had devil of to reach finding 6500k.

    Found Sylvania 60 with natural daylight with 5000k. Then, natural daylight..ecosmart from lowest. 60/14 watt.5000k. 800 lumens. On both.

    Then. Sylvania. Gx23,2 pin. 13 w/2700k. Weird bulb

    I just love the sexy way lights look suspended from ceiling over tank...well planted with focus plants. So relaxing to watch.

    6500K is what is best for plants. 5000k is... somewhat do able. However, I always just would look for 6500K LED. This is an example: Leson 100 Watt Equivalent A19 LED Light Bulb Standard E26/E27 Base 13W Energy Saving, Daylight Cool White 6500k (6 Pack) - - Amazon.com

    Cheap and effective.

    And this could be downright cool.

    JACKYLED E26 3 in 1 Socket Adapter E27 Converts 3 Way Splitter for Standard LED Bulbs 360 Degrees Adjustable 180 Degree Bending Max Watt 300W - - Amazon.com

    Never seen that before.
     
  12. MelPaulATLValued MemberMember

    Awesome thanks. And I like that socket thingy. That would cool as crap over a 150.

    Is this azoo stuff making a diff?

    In my 5 yes. In my other tanks... not so sure.
     
  14. MelPaulATLValued MemberMember

    Hmm. What's your philosophy on why it is working? I have a fluval spec 3. And a 2.6 marinelad ..I think it is..bow.

    My sword is still looking sad. Ive been dosing. Not religious ly with flourish and excel.

    And tabs.

    I haven't been dosing co2 lately and still getting some good growth. Though tommorrow I am putting that tank back on a siesta system.
