Anyone from Penang willing to give away some moss ? or sell it cheap to me. biggrin.gif By the way, is co2 injection necessary for aquarium plant ? What is the light that we normally use for aquarium plant ? any recommendation ?
*
CO2...
depend on what plant do you want to grow
it also use to accelerate the plant growth (plus fertilizer)
especially among aquascaper enthusiast who like to compete in yearly competition
so it's an open debate wherether it's a necessary or not
depend on your personal preference

for light...
even T8 are good enough if you got shallow tank
but normally many ppl use T5 because it penetrate more light into the tank
and easy to purchase at any LFS
and again depend on our setup and what plant to wish to grow

any idea how to prevent this thing from happening ? fighting with these green algae stuff for few months but still cant get rid of it.

the aquarium is located at outside of the house. got a bit sun shine during the day but i had tried to cover it with woods and clothings to prevent this from happening but it seems didnt work out that well... Im currently using FILTRO 2.0 filter that LFS claim 100% to remove algae, all in one solution..........  icon_question.gif

one of the reason why it's recommended to keep aquarium indoor
but you can also try using UV aquarium filter
found an articles that suggest several step can be taken to combat green water
do read it thumbup.gif

Hi all sifus~~~

This is my 1st post of tank, the tank is about 90 Days old, the HC is growing too slow, i was thinking to insert root fert to boost the growth of HC.
Any advice?

Current Dosing
JBL Ferropol - 10ml weekly
DIY NPK - 5ml daily
Seachem Iron - 5ml weekly

*
have you try using much more intense lighting??
from the picture seem like they didn't get enough lighting

and what kind of substrate are you using???
if substrate that specially made for planted tank...
i doubt you need to add root fert just after 90 days of setup

Hi guys smile.gif

Im planning to set up a low tech small planted tank (1ft+). Want to add some driftwood or stones inside.

Just wondering, is it safe to use the stones n wood found by the riverside? Do I need to boil the stones as well?

Thanks! notworthy.gif
*
planted tank only??or
you plan to put any livestock(fish,shrimp,snail etc) inside??
for wood normally people boil it to get rid off the tannins and
for rock it doesn't need to be boil BUT
it might change your water PH(alkaline or acidic) which is depend
on what kind of livestock you plan to put inside the tank

The livestock would just be guppies, perhaps an algae eater/otto in the future. smile.gif

Rock im probably gonna get the ADA ryu stones. Just that this weekend gonna go to a waterfall, perhaps can find some nice ones as well. If the rock has algae/moss on it, would it be sufficient to just scrub them off with a sponge? or need to soak in something?
*
some people do suggest that you can kill the algae/moss by soaking it in chlorine mix water OR
you can also just let it dry under hot sunny day for couple of days OR
you can baked them in the oven
and i'm not sure which are more effective because i personally never tried it

hi guys, apart from using wood.. Anyone can give me other idea to DIY a light stand for my tank ? I do not want to hang the light as well.

hi guys, im facing some problem here,

I got planted tank in my room, everything goes well, it is bare bottom tank, not carpet, just start planting monte carlo. Other plant, riccia, fissiden, moss, rotala and bacopa.

I got assassin snail and cherry shrimp house in that tank, everything looks fine, got berried mommy.

the egg owned by one of the mommy has been hatched. I saw the shrimplet the day it hatched, but on the next day, I never saw the shrimplet. don't know either they are hiding in the riccia or what so ever.

FYI, I am using surface skimmer... and HOB

there are another mommy shrimp that berried, I don't want the same thing happen... Kindly advise me on this matter...
*
it's usual when you have a planted tank with shrimp biggrin.gif
they almost invisible to some owner eyes

if you take a look at most shrimp breeder tank
there's no submerge plant or even driftwood
just soil and them (the shrimp)

DonnerGott
there's many plausible cause
lack of nutrient(such as nitrate) or maybe co2
lack of light penetration as i see you're using LED
water temp also could cause the problems

Anyway, want to ask if its wrong to keep co2 running everyday even the lights are off when I'm away at work ? I usually come home after work everyday and turn on the light for 1 to 3 hours a day. Please advice.
*
i think there's no problem if you have planted tank only
but if you have a livestock inside your tank
then you must observe how much co2 they can take without the plant produce a o2

Hi all,

here's my low tech, low cost planted tank..

the cabombas and coontails are growing fast, moss balls seems to be growing too, but the Christmas moss at the bottom, the java ferns on the front right and the ferns at the back arent doing so great.. are these plants naturally slow growing or do they need co2 to grow?

had my lighting on about 16 hours a day, and i've put in nitrate, ammonia, carbon and phosphate reducer media in the top filter box.
there's some minor algae growth around the tank, but not serious.
*
java fern are slow grower
christmas moss will be more thrive in cold water
and yes..
with additional supply of co2 will make them grow faster

p/s:
16 hour of lighting is overkill espeacially for low tech tank
