Re: 100g w/weak growth, suggestions pls
Debbie, here are my suggestions:
Consider losing the powerheads, running the ugfs off heaters (write
for details), injecting the CO2 with a DIY reactor, adding two shop
Lose powerheads $0
Heaters (2) 20
DIY Reactor 2
2 shop lights 24
When you are convinced this is the right track put Chroma 50 tubes in
the shop lights in place of the cool whites they are sold with. 2
shoplights means 4 tubes. I allowed enough funds for two reactors,
and you even get to drink the coke.
You may want to get a sponge filter addon for a powerhead and use it
to get a good current going in your tank. That often helps plants.
Oh, and get a Siamese Algae Eater (SAE) for your tank. With a 100
gallon, get three.
There, that wasn't so bad was it! Dave
