i think i get it now Keithgh
Let see what can i do to improve this.
Thanks for the support.
This is one thing I am positive Roy will agree with me on this one.
The idea is to make you think the deeper (from front to back) than it actually is.
Plants ok, staghorn algae making me lose my head!
This is well worth reading its an ASW information on Staghorn Algae.
See if this helps you in removing it.
i think i need another filter for more biologic filtration.
I already tried the commom things and nothing works:
I increased the flow with a power head..didn´t work (there´s plenty of wather circulation and i see this algae balancing with the flow...so there is circulation there )
I reduced the light to 7,5H and reduced the intensity (only 2*54w in 7,5h in the middle only 2h with 4*54w)...didn´t help.
And there is no relation with the level of light since some of the affected rocks are in low light places.
Co2 is always constant and with good levels.
During the night i promote aerenation increasing wather surface agitation...
This only affects driftwood and rocks..not the plants for now.
Every other day i remove them as much as i can, by hand, by excel, or even H2o2 and they come back in a few days.
I also reduced the Nitrate dosing to only 10ppms per week since my tap wather already has 25ppm and also has some small value sof amonia!
Not a critic problem but very anoying
At the moment your tank and fish look very healthy plus plenty of water movement.
That is a nice looking unit you have.
Certainly not the usual photograph.
so i was bored...and did a small rescape.
I'm trying to connect both sides making the valley smaller.
Left side plants must grow a bit now to see full effect, also i have another branch to put in there but couldn't hold it yet...its floating.
Ill keep this updated.
Any chance of a full frontal photo (not video) please the video was rather fast at that point.
Stunning Lush healthy plants too. Congratulation
A little touch of moss on the DW??
Looking great and very pleasing to see.
that moss has pass trought my head...lets see, lets see
Hi Joptoaz, Fiss would look good
i have it in the base but it just don´t grow....don´t know why....
I have it tooIMO it grows better under higher light not in the shadows
