    Your tank looks promising, just needs some growing :)

    Personally, I wouldn't buy a PH controller in combination with a CO2 system since the measurement is not precise. I'd rather go for one or two drop checkers and 4dKH solution ... Cheaper and more precise! Also keep an eye out for the infamous "end of tank dump" which will increase your CO2 input and possibly kill your fish if the amount of CO2 gets too high. (unless your using a dual stage reg)

    Europe , Romania . Aquarium was rearanged in this form at 1 march 2011 . I lose my pacience with parvula who grow very slow . This days i read about EI fertilisation but e don t know how to find this tipe of fertilisation . Exist something comercial equivalent of this ? Today i see some FUZZ ALGAE on the top of some java fern and otocinclus don t look interesed by this tipe of algae . Do you belive 3 days of balckout will solve the problem ?
