Thanks for the advice. I'll take a look into that Seachem, so in case Leaf Zone doesn't work out I'll switch over. I saw a bottle yesterday as I was picking up a light strip for my 2.5g, just didnt look at it.
And I LOVE your tanks. I've looked at them before and was amazed.
And yeah, I figured I would give it 5 or 6 weeks to see what kinda results I get from it. Now that you mention it, I'll go ahead and take some pics tonight, seeing Leaf Zone has been in there half week, which means most growth was just from the stand alone tank. Then every week after I'll do the same thing, from the same camera position. That way we can see what kid of a difference it makes on a weekly basis.
So since I'll keep updating this, I'll change the title some and list my parameters:
- pH: 7.6
- kH 116 ppm or 6.5
- Ammonia : 0.0 -.0125
- Nitrites: 0
- Nitrates: 5-6 ppm
I'll just be adding the recommenced dosage, well a little over, as I am dosing for 20 gallons when I have a 16 gallon.
- Amazon Sword
- Java Fern
One more note, I have a low-light set up, 15 watts on the 16 gallon, and no co2 YET. Based on some rough calcs, my current co2 is about 5 ppm. Since Anacharis grows fast no matter what, I'll exclude it from the pics, I was thinking of focusing on the wisteria and Java fern, since wisteria has shown decent growth, and the fern is an ideal plant for low-light.
