Hello, Is This Balanced?
 
Hi all, I have a question on the subject of balance. I have a lot of plants in my tank to the point where it's hard to see the back. Here are the specifics of my light/Co2/ferts, I have two cfls that are 40 watts each full spectrum 6700k not sure of the rest, then for co2 I have a diy with a regulator that came with a air pump and pull it out at night, for ferts I have ADA amazonia and comprehensive and kents micro nutrients, I don't dose weekly but break it down porportionally and dose daily. I feel that the light might be breaking it but I'm getting great growth and little to no algae. thanks for your help

Balance is not something we can just tell you if you have it or not by giving us specs of your setup. It is more of a experience thing. If you are getting healthy growth and little algae, then its balanced. Just keep up what your doing. However, pay attention to water parameters as over time the "balance" in an aquarium can shift as your PH naturally goes down or as fish get older, they produce more waste, etc.

Yet as sincrisis said we can't really tell you if its balanced. As far as the lighting it seems fine to me. I have run it higher then that on a lower tech setup.
