    i wish i could have plants in mine. but thats seems more of a challenge to me. ill stick to fishies for now!
    awesome plant doe!!!!

    I believe planted tanks if set up right is actually easier than without. They make for great nutrient export.
  7. PuffPuffWell Known MemberMember

    i have read that it does. but then i saw that they need CO2 and other additives and it started getting confusing. so i backed off.

    They don't necessarily need pressurized co2, that's what Excel for. Plants generally keep the tank healthier and water cleaner.

    You don't even need excel in some low tech tanks. Just decent light and ferts.

    Wow! does it just flower on it's own in the right conditions? I've yet to see mine do that.
  13. frampyWell Known MemberMember

    Whatever you're doing your plants are certainly liking it! :)

    The 75gal isn't in your profile. What is this set-up? Lights, ferts, CO2, etc.

    Thanks - 6 hours seems short to me but obviously it is working for you! Did you try lights on longer and did you have troubles?
  19. frampyWell Known MemberMember

    I had some algae at 8 hrs so I dropped it down to 6. It solved the algea problem. I have one set of lights that are on the full 6 hrs and the second set is on for 4 1/2 hrs. Its a 4 bulb light fixture.

    This was a couple weeks ago the ludwigia in the back is up to the level of the spray bar now and brighter red. I am slowly removing the dwarf sag as the downoi grows in

    Gorgeous tank. I'm going to try to reduce my lighting as I have algae on back and side glass and on my plants.
