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

TOTAL			42

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
