Ah like that ^^. Yea atm I use co2 at 108bpm. But I should be receiving my in-line atomizer soon so that can go down by alot. Even tho I hardly have any loss now due to the bubbles being pulled down in my tank with the flow.

Ferts I put in once a week. All in one fert from a pretty respected supplier containing everyhing.

I called my lfs and in the tank they use the same light and its set to 100% but its a slightly higher tank. By about 5 cm. So might have to dial it down to like 90% in mine with my bioload.

It's just the relationship between strength of lighting, nutrients and CO2 requirements are linked so if you weren't intending to or didn't use CO2 then strong lighting isn't essential.

Yea very true. I'm still balancing out the famous trio. I have two co2 drop checkers. One just above the substrate at right front corner-ish and another one at the top right in the back. Both are lime green color. Light is now on top of the rim. Leaning on the 2 extendable iron grips the LEDs came with. So its an open tank now. Had to point the powerhead more upwards too as I started getting a film layer.

I also dosed the bigger dosis of my all in one fert but that was a small mistake as I just replanted everything so they arent using all the nutrients yet. Doing a 25% wc saterday.

I added two dragonstones yesterday and glued Buces on em. And I added alot of in-vitro Staurogyne Repens.

Hopefully the bioload will pick up soon and the balance oke!^^
