Pearling and Algae question
Well I finally made the leap to CO2 injection. All my plants (except one)
are pearling. I have a few questions:
1- Does pearling signify that plant is growing and has plenty of nutrients
or does it just mean theres respiration?
2- How long does it take if there is appropiate nutrients before I notice
3- algae problem is getting worse now. both I believe you call it greenspot
and general slim on glass. below are particulars of 55 gal tank. I need to
scrape about once every 4-5 days.
Have 8 SAE fish
1- angel fish
oh yea I have been fighting snails like you wouldnt believe. Prolificate
lighting 161 watts 96 and 55 w subcompacts
water change I do about 25% every week when home
4- If KH is too low what do I add and how much. Wheres the formula? And if
ph is too low I will just decrease number of bubbles injected? Right now 1
bubble/ 4 secs.
5- Do I need to test for something else? If so what and how do you manage if
there is a problem
I have been reading with interest all of your comments and searched site and
Krib but can seem to come to a good conclusion.
