Re: A Low PH Tank
Thank you very much, David Youngker, for your very nice post answering my
many questions in depth. I really appreciated and enjoyed all of the info
you so generously shared. I have a better idea now about low ph blackwater
plant tanks. Unfortunately I accidentally deleted that issue of the digest,
so I can't cut and paste here.
Sounds like you've really gotten into it- it sounds really neat. Among
alot of other interesting things, I was surprised about fungus and mold- I
knew bacteria are supressed but didn't think of those showing up! Do these
tanks have a strong odor (good?, bad?)? Also didn't realize that there would
be less natural food for fry. That would be a downside to me if it was
severe, because when I have fry (tetras) in a tank I rely mainly on the plant
tanks' ability to generate food for them until they get big enough to join
safely in feedings.
I did find a post in archives saying you use mostly strong root-feeding
plants with emmerse growth in tanks with extreme conditions.
Interesting take on schooling- I hadn't thought of that!
I'd like to ask some more questions soon : ), but wanted to post this.
