Re: [APD] growing aquatic plants
Since you didn't mention what location on the planet you are at, perhaps
you could tell us what exactly is making your water so hard and what the Kh
and Gh numbers are.
Have lived (phoenix)where the tap water was considered "liquid rock" and
at the other extreme in Milton, MA where the hardness was less than ONE.
Water filtering thru granite doesn't pick up a lot of elements! Grew plants
in both places.
Look into the archives for macro and micro nutrients, fertilizing the water
column, and then see if you can get an analysis of the tap water from the
local water district.
sunlight. oh boy. had a tank that suddenly had a corner that was growing a
plant there like crazy. got up a little earlier than usual and went down
to my fish room in the basement and lo and behold, a sliver of sunlight was
coming in around the edge of a curtain and was shining right on the corner
of that tank. and only for 45 minutes. But that was enough to spur really
IMHO it is almost impossible to manage the growth generated by the
application of direct sunlight to a tank. Blows the 2WPG recommendation out the
window. I have always found it easier to control the tank growth and health
by eliminating direct sunlight from the equation.
