Lighting emersed plants and cloudiness
I set up a 20-high plant filter tank. The tank currently holds 5 medium
water hycatith (spelling?) and 2 anubias. I have a single 20-wat full
spectrum florescent bulb. How much lighting should I be using?
Also, has anyone had problems with flourite clouding in there tanks? Before
adding the plant filter tank, I have vortexed and added flocculent at least
3 times and in a couple days, the cloudiness returns. The water smells
clean. I don't think it's bacteria, but I'm not scientist by a long shot.
I've even tried 50 water changes as well to no avail. I have a cooli loach,
but he/she'not big enough to really stirr up gravel in the tank so I don't
think that's the problem. Can excessive light be the cause. It has 3 watts
per 1 gal
