[APD] marine planted tanks
Ruddy asked about how ppl's marine planted tanks were doing...
(so here i am coming out of lurk mode after many long months)
Mine is doing well, i have found through Tom's and others assistance (see
reefcentral macroalgae forum for more info) that good light and
fertilization is key.
Course every algae is different and some thrive and some dont'.. u just have
to play w/ different ones (if and when u cna find them)
sounds a lot like fw planted doesn't it?? ;-)P
im a notoriously lazy water tester.. in fact.. i can't remember the last
time i tested anything.. except of course the salinity thats an easy one..
they make nitrate and pH kits like that and i may start testing again...
but i have noticed one thing in particular that will affect fragile macros
and that is the salinity level. Let it fall too much and some will die off.
Heat also can be of consequence in like manner..
i keep my calcium levels high.. enough to grow heliopora (blue plate) and
some other hard corals as well as keep a good growth of corraline algae on
the back glasss ... tank is only 6 months old right now.. and it is doing
i willl post some pics to my members section at my clubs website very

I'm curious to where Tom Barr's marine tank stands (And anyone else's)? I
have a small Marine tank at home and I'm interested in what works and such
and the experiences so far.
