[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 6, Issue 38

I don't quite see that move of yours.  Unless I am missing something you
will not be able to advance a pawn.  (Of course I often miss something)

> I haven't tried this because my Aquaclear 402 powerhead is way too
powerful for my small 10 gallon with green water, but I suspect you may also
be able to filter for diatoms with the Aquaclear Quick Filter powerhead
attachment.  The cartridges filter to 1 micron and are about $5 for two.
The Quick filter attachment is like  $8.00 if I remember correctly.  Useful
if someone already owns an Aquaclear powerhead.

> To: <aquatic-plants at actwin_com>
> Hello all,
> some time ago someone on this list suggested  a ratio of 4 of Ca to Mg to
be about optimal.  My tapwater has 115 mg/l Ca and 15 Mg/l Mg.  Does it make
any sense to correct for this ratio.  I ask because I have read the optimal
level of Mg to be about 5-10 mg/l and my tapwater already contains more.
> Another question:  can this imbalance between Ca and Mg have anything to
do with very pale leaves of for example Ludwigia.  I think somebody else
also mentioned this.
> Thanks.  Any help will be very appreciated.
