[APD] 5-year tank rehab
I have a 5 year old tank that's needs a spruce up.
It's a 220w CF with Co2 and substrate heating. I did some water
changing but not real cleaning and for about 4 years all was well.
Finally I shut off the co2 to slow the plant growth. I'd gone back to
grad school so for about a year I didn't pay too much attention to the
tank. It was OK for some time then it I started to get algae on the
plants etc. when I tried to vacuum up the substrate endless amounts of
dirt came up. I am wondering if with resumed co2 injection and new
bulbs I can get things right again or if I should just start over.
The plants are OK but have seen better days. The roots are nce and
white but a lot of the leaves are soft and its mosly the ferns that
I'd like opinions on this.
