    Well the EasyCarbo seems to be doing the trick already, spot dosed it on some Staghorn and its gone bright red!

    Have started dosing 1.5ml TPN+ each day,
    and 3ml of easycarbo each day.

    Will see how this goes.

    Just bought some 1.5ml pump tops from here Bottles & Jars - Naturallythinking Pure Aromatherapy and Spa

    Along with some bottles to make dosing every morning very easy and quick.

    :)

    Also last night during the weekly water change i realised that my seachem Purigen was a little dirtier than normal so a good rinse cleaned that out. Going to look into recharging it in the next week or so :)

    Hmmm all is not going to plan...

    THe staghorn speems to be spreading!
    I also lost a single cherry shrimp yesterday.
    and one of my crypts is falling to pieces!

    Should I be worried?

    I am wondering if this is all down to poor water circulation from the built in overhead filter?

    Well I think I may have discovered a posible cause of the problem, my fire extinguisher ran out of CO2 this morning... I guess it could have been giving an unsteady supply?

    Have you got drop checker in the tank? How do you measure co2?
    Keep us updated. Interesting to see how you get on with it.

    I use a drop checker however I have been struggling to keep it steady of recent. I guess it could have been backing off causing a lack of co2?
