Thanks to Tom Barr and an astonishing amount of sunset hygro (H.
polysperma), my 72 gallon, 210 watt, canister CO2-supplemented tank is
nearly algae free. Now I would like to start to get rid of the hygro, which
isn't one of my favorite plants, and replace it with something(s) else.
What finally beat the algae was when I pulled out a big hunk of driftood and
several anubias plants, and replaced them with the fast growing sunset
hygro. And I wonder, if I pull out the hygro and put the anubias back in,
will the BBA come zooming back? Should I change my dosing?
Currently dosing at water change: 6t equilibrium, 4.5t baking soda, 1/2t
KNO3, 1/8t KH2PO4, 15ml Flourish, 15ml Flourish Iron. (equilibrium has ALOT
of K, so I don't dose K2SO4). I repeat KN03, KH2PO4, Flourishes every 2-3
days. KH=GH=5, pH=6.6-6.8, photoperiod 12 hours.
