Has anybody used the product Geo-Liquid. Would it be termed a flocculant?
This is the first time I have heard that term.
I have found that it seems to remove some of the gH of our water. I have
to say my fish really seem to love it, brightening up for several days
after I use it. I have also found that some fine-leaved plants seem to do
better for me since I have been using it.
BTW, thanks to all who contribute to this list, I have followed it for
several months now. I thought I knew a lot about maintaining planted
aquaria, but I have learned a lot by lurking here!
Hoping Virginia Beach's coldest June on record will warm up enough to make
my pond plants happy!
