So I thought I’d share a some pictures of my tank A month apart and I’m really pleased with the results. Plants are growing really well apart from my siamensis 53b. It’s gone really bushy but not grown much taller. Has anyone got any ideas why this may be? I’d also love to see everyone’s before and after pics so post away!

Nice! (The Co2 explains why the plants look so good, lol)
yeh. I’ve never properly used Co2 so when I found the liquid version I thought I’d give it a go. I know it’s not quite like injecting the gas but the plants seem happy enough haha.

and liquid Co2 daily
Liquid CO2 products are not really a good idea, I'm afraid. Most of them contain glutaradehyde, a powerful disinfectant. They can harm some plants even at the recommended dose, and they are not that good for fish. Never overdose these products.

oh really. The plants and fish seem fine and healthy like. I’ll just have to make sure I stick to the instructions and dose the correct amount
