Microscopic plants by Nikki Casali
Anyone know why I have microscopic stem plants growing on the surface of one of my planted tanks? I've noticed them before but ignored them. They are bright green, 3mm tall and tend to clump in groups of three or four. I thought it was some type of pollen or spores until I looked...

Dark tips on Java Fern leaves by default
I'm not sure where I read the original posts, I think it was on one of the forums. Either way, I thought I'd throw out a recent data point and observation. I've seen this phenomena on a few of my java fern plants, both the small fine leaf variety as well as the larger long leaf style. The very...

I used a 2Liter plastic bottle 1.5 cups sugar (I intended on using 2cups but I run out) 1 tsp baking soda (I have pretty soft water) 1/4...

Whisper filter + CO2 ? by spiral_72
Would it be pointless to pump CO2 into the intake of my Whisper 60? It would be an easy modification and the impeller should do a fine job of busting the CO2 bubbles up. This is a waterfall(?) type filter in that it dumps the filtered water back on top of the water. Would the surface agitation...

That's it, I've had it - Blue Green Algae by Shawn
I can't take it any more. I simply cannot beat or keep up with the blue-green algae outbreak I've had now for about 5 months. I've tried everything. Blacking out the tank, removing my CO2 system, algicide treatments - nothing works. It makes my tanks look like crap, and it's killing all my...

TMG and supplements? by LM
HI all, I'm switching from Flourish fertilizer system to TMG (tropica master grow) for my plants. I assume I still need Flourish Excel since I don't have a good CO2 source.. but do I still need Iron and other macro elements (nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus) or does TMG take care of it all? linda

Green Light Stump Remover by Watercress
Anyone has a definite answer to its content? According to previous postings it is suppose to be pure KNO3, but when I tested a solution of it with the Aqua. Pharm. nitrate test, I got a reading of 0. So, is the problem with the Stump Remover or the Nitrate Test? BTW, the Nitrate Test did have a...

Anyone here doses Dolomite? by Watercress
I recently started dosing Dolomite to add Ca and Mg to my water. I am doing this because the new leaf of my plants are coming out twisted. Some research suggest that it may be due to a Ca and/or Mg deficiency. So I go 40 lbs of Dolomite from Home Depot for about $2.50. So far, I think I have used...

How Fast Do CO2 Get Absorbed? by Watercress
I am new in this CO2 injection game. I have set up a DIY CO2 generator a few days ago. I see the solution fizzing slowly, but I dont see any bubble emerging from my porcelain airstone that I am using as a diffuser. I think my set up is air tight enough, so I concluded that the CO2 is getting...
