    Snails...OMG

    May be the only species you have currently. They will dominate initially till food sources are depleted. I always keep rams ponds and mts. Mts are the most prolific of the three and often out compete the latter two. Hard to say my favorite but do really like the rams. Im down to 50 or so in...

    Low tech plant suggestions

    In a column tank you would need a serious led to get into medium or higher par. Demeter plant choices are awesome. The duration of your photo period may be too long...hence algae. What kind of algae? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    How to keep these plant in good shape?

    Yes too much flow is a concern. If they are getting pushed under, or just beat on too much they wont do well. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    How to keep these plant in good shape?

    Never used api. But glut in general shouldn't be damaging the salvania. Although as stated probably not helping it alot either as it gets plenty. Mine does appreciate macros and micros. Growth was slow the first month. Once established I pitch about 4 handfuls a week. Light looks suspect but ive...

    New CO2 setup questions

    Can damage/kill vals, and anarchis. Those are two most widely reported. One technique is to slowly increase to recommended dose to allow aclimation. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    New CO2 setup questions

    Low ph for plants ?

    That would be carbon. It is beneficial to plants and can be used as an algaecide. But comparing it too pressuried co2 is like apples and oranges. In a low tech tank carbon may be fine. Plants will always benefit from co2 however. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    Low ph for plants ?

    Im assuming you mean carbon (glut)-- not comparible. Most run co2 between 15 and 30ppm. You can get co2 level from ph but not with glut as there is none. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    Low ph for plants ?

    Even organic soil (mgops)will have some life in it that will die off. More par is only of value if you have co2, macros, and micros to run it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    Low ph for plants ?

    If you didnt mineralize soil there typically is an ammonia spike. If doing fish in. That scenario is difficult. But makes for a good option to a fishless cycle. Your params by most standards are good. What id call neutral. As a blanket statement most plants we see in hobby appreciate some gh/kh...
