[APD] Re: Vol 10, Issue 9 green water
I'm curious -- do you use well water or city water? Do you use a declor? I
have well water (soft, comes out at 6.0 ph, 28% CO2 from the tap), and I was
using declor "just in case" on my tanks. Although it didn't affect my other
tanks -- I did frequent water changes on my 10 gallon which held five new Ottos
and a lot of plants. I hadn't cycled it, so I was doing frequent water
changes. I had terrible green water and I was doing water changes twice a day (4
cups/one liter each time, sometimes more). One day, I stopped the declor -- and
the green water started to fade almost immediately. Within two days, it was
completely gone. It has not come back (knocks on wood).
I can't even begin to explain why, but it is a suggestion if you use well
water and declor. Some may say it was a coincidence, but I don't think so...
