    Hey, well I have found.
    My name is Alexander and I'm from Bucharest, Romania. Watching this forum for some time, but both. Now I say to introduce myself and say hi.
    A few words about the aquarium set last year and a half.
    Volume: 126 liters gross
    Fertilization: Ferropol = 40 ml / week
    Ferropol 24 = 8 drops / day
    E.I.
    CO2 cylinder with solenoid and difuzer ADA. I do not know how many bubbles per second, passing too quickly through the counter. Ph approximately 6.6-6.8
    Plants: Blyxa Japonica, Limnophilla aromatica, Pogostemon helferi, Heteranthera zosterifolia, Ludwigia repens, Valisneria (probably spiralis), Hemianthus callitricoides, Micranthemum micranthemoides, Eriocaulon setaceum, Riccia and a Criptocoryna, I think.
    This is my tank, I hope you will like. You will find here some pictures with my aquarium. october 2009 and november 2009
    Please excuse me for expression, but my English is novice.

    Hi,

    Your English is just fine, better than my Romanian.

    Nice tank.

    I am not familiar with Ferropol which I am guessing is the 'macro' and Ferropol 24, which would be the 'micro', but they seem to work well.

    Thank you for assessment.
    Ferropol is added weekly, at the change of water, depends on the volume of water changed. Ferropol 24 is added daily, few drops, depends on the volume tank. Both are micro.

    Nice tank, I love the light.

    What if anything do you use for macronutrients?

    Not really understand the question.
    But if you do not use the macro, plants suffer no longer feed and die. And algae will prevail.
