    judging by your growth looks fine to me

    How did you get such a nice even flow without laying plants down flat?

    Yeah growth is a lot better atm, i'm growing 2 new plants which have never grown before syngonanthus sp manaus and erio type 2. Still can't grow staurogyne porto velho or tropica/repens.

    I have equal currents at both ends of the tank running into each other like dutchy. I used to find that more current led to less pearling.

    On a side note whats the deal with pearling? I run normal light levels from led and t5, but i can have plants pearl with bad growth and get better growth with no pearling?

    If the plants continue to improve, it may be because of either the increased flow or increasing the bubble rate so co2 is gassed quicker so the ph controller clicks the solenoid off quicker. it's on for about 15min every hour...
