that hardscape is amazing man!
shame on you sonny! :deadhorse: i would like to see weekly updates of you tank / :waiting:
he's in really algae problem , so there must be piece of shame...
algae problems?! what kind?
As Astralis said, I am facing some algae problems because I went out of Co2 fo a week and didn't notice. I have some BBA on the carpet and staghorn, everything on the right side of the tank where water circulation is the strongest. So I increased Co2, decreased lighting to 2x39W (instead of 4x39W) and change water twice a week, so we will see what will happen.
It seems that Aquasoil contains too much nutrients to grow only HC like in my casehew:
hey mate, bba often appears if co2 is not running constantly. your soil isnt the bad guy this time . ask me i had a lot bba in my last layout and still some on dw in my current scape. as best try to trim out the affected areas of hc. clean all rocks with a toothbrush to prevent bba grow on it. where is the staghorn growing? have you checked nitrate? maybe to high. reduce feeding too. normaly your siam algae eater will start to eat bba if they are really hungry. maybe post some pics.
the scape is really cool sonny...
I'm very sorry to inform you, but this scape is now over, for more than a week. I really could't struggle with BBA and staghorn any more. I had a big rush at my work and was often away from home, and you know what happens then
But... I immediately started with my next scape in the same tank, using the same Amazonia, and I'm very happy to introduce it to you (in the new topic). This time I hope to have more luck. :muscle:
One of my last shots...
Thanks for watching and helping me out:rock:
It was indeed a beautiful scape, sorry to hear it exists no more...
Keep some flourish excel handy, with spot treatment on affected areas its very effective against many algae.
I treated infected spots with Easy Carbo, and it helped a lot, but there were too many spots and too little time...
so sorry to hear. but i m looking forward to see something new from you mate.
I think you must try with horn snail. I put it (20snails) into my 110L tank, and my tank be clean only in 2-3days. (BBA, BGA,browm algae, diatom, fuzzy, etc disappear)
Maybe you don't believe me (so do I, but you can see in my journal http://www.aquascapingworld.com/forum/aspiring-aquascapers/5909-lonely-tank-95x35x35.html)
Hmmm... sounds very interesting!:113::yo:
