    50G Planted Tank

    My red plants started to get really red when I started injecting CO2. No supplemental iron dosing. The device is a wavemaker powerhead. I only turn it on for a few minutes before a water change. It helps stir up detritus. Fishes dont like it tho since it blows them all over the place.

    I think I need to redo my tank. Any advice? I am sorry in advance for all these posts lately.

    Are you using pure RO water? Whats wrong with your tap water? I personnally mix RO and tap so I dont have to remineralize. The plants you mentioned pretty much low light plants. Hygrophyla is a stem plant so it basically get its nutrients from the water column. You may want to change your...

I attached some airline tubing to a spray bottle and a rigid tubing on the other end. Used 3ml of peroxide...

    Plant Growing Advice!

    I got some PSO from Co op. Easy plant to grow. It started slow for a few weeks and just took off. Stick em anywhere for the most part. Pretty much feeds of the water column. I used the same fertz too with good results.

    Plant Suggestions

    Pogostemon Stellatus (Octopus) makes a nice background plant. Long narrow leaves, easy and grows pretty fast. I also like Cabombas. Repens are nice but the bottom leaves tend to die if it doesnt get enough light.

    Little holes in my plant

    Could be the plant adjusting to its new enviroment or lack of potassium or its sensitive to "liquid co2" (not really liquid co2 but pretty much an algaecide with its main ingredient is glutaraldehyde) I use "liquid co2" from time to time too.
