And last question, do you have CO2 running in every tank?



The taller spikier plant in the left is Pogostemon erectus and the plant the albino longfin cory is sitting on is Fissiden Fonatunus.

Amazingly beautiful tanks. Love the fish room as well. I don't want to get into the whole CO2 thing but man, it is tempting after seeing your plants doing so very well.

Wanna come work on my tank? ha h

Thanks :) Not all my tanks have co2 and the ones that dont just grow slower but have pretty much no algae. I kinda like them cuz they are less demanding but not as great for production besides the livestock.

I would if you lived closed ;)

Awesome thank you. Would you have a lighting recommendation for a 20 gallon planted? Currently, I have a single full spectrum fluorescent tube that is seemingly not sufficient.

Big Al's Pets has Zoo Med Aquasun T5-HO Fluorescent Hood - 2 x 24 W - 24"for only 54.99 which is a great deal. I use zoo meds on most my tanks and comes with the option to run one or two bulbs. This would give you enough light to grow anything. I would recommend a 6500k or 6800k and a 5000k bulb. Substrate is really important as well, I prefer eco complete because it last forever and gets better in time if you are using tap water since it already has minerals in it and eco complete has a high CEC which means it holds nutrients. ADA soil you can get fast growth but in time it becomes dirt and loses it punch. I dont even have to dose ferts in my tank. If I had RO water I would need to dose ferts.
