    I am back :D

    I moved (bought a nice little house) and set up a temporary little tank.
    size: 39x12x12 inch (24 gallon)
    light: 2x30 watt t8 for 10 hours
    CO2: pressurized (external and mist by powerhead) and the adviced daily dose of excel
    waterchanges: 2x per week 50%
    after waterchange:readdition of 8 mg/l NO3, 1 mg/l PO4 and 7 ml TMG. 2 days later again 4 mg/l NO3, 0.5 mg/l PO4 and 4 ml TMG.
    pH:5.8
    KH +/- 4
    no fish

    I had major problems with BGA, due to a lack of management. So I tore down my old tank, cleaned everything and put the remaining living plants back in. To stay ahead of the problems I am changing water 2x per week with readdition of NO3, PO4 and TMG.

    It is not going too bad, I haven't seen any BGA since two weeks (wich is the time the tank is running). However, I do see one of my "old problems". The new growth of the stargrass is yellow/white. This will result in complete melting of the plants, while one or two stems are remaining. These will then nicely grow back and some time later the same thing is going to happen. Have seen the same thing over and over again by now...

    So, what could be the problem?




    probably CO2? I still haven't bought a drop checker. I thought I had enough money on the paypal, but after renewing my membership, nothing was left... So I will buy it, only takes some time. However, since I add quite some CO2 and the daily amount of excel, I don't know whether CO2 is the primary suspect. What I do know is that in the "old tank" I killed my shrimps using these parameters. Now I am using the same tapwater from the same company. the waterparameters have not changed.

    for some reason, I couldn't upload my pics: file could not be recognized, so here is a link to pics on a dutch forum:
