DIY substrate heating & a couple other things by Bob
I've been reading the Resler-Behle paper (at the Krib) on DIY substrate heating and I'm about ready to make that leap. The compressed CO2 tank is up & running, though I'm giving serious consideration to linking it to a controller rather than just having it bubble 24/7. And brand and online...

slow/no growth by WILLIAM VINCENT
I know, I know, we see this post all the time, but I am truly stumped. Everything seems fine, but the growth is pathetic. Even the hornwort is growing for krap. The anubias and swords look horrible, appear to be very slowly approaching the clearing at the end of the path. 75 gallon, lightly...
