Cascade elite 1200 canister filter
(RODI filter on the way)
This is my 4th reset in about a year and a half. Ive been through so much, and learned alot along the way. I’m very knowledgeable when it comes to growing plants indoor and outdoor, however growing in an aquarium has presented its own challenges.
In my previous setups my plants would turn clear, wilt, and die off. I’ve come to the conclusion that it has to be my high ph of up to 8.5! We have hard water here so I really hope to keep my ph down and stable without having to add any buffers. I’ve tried everything other than RODI and nothing worked. I have now switched to ADA aqua sand that’s supposed to buffer ph to 6.5 - 7.0 and has nutrients within itself. I will be using RODI water from now on and we’ll see how this goes!
