I had a quick question about CO2. I know that it is not required for low light tanks but nevertheless here is my situation.
I have a 15G tank and around 10-12 plants including moss inside it. I think this to be pretty heavily planted. I plan to use Seachem fertilizers but the issue is my lighting. I really can not change the lighting. Should I still use CO2 injections despite having low lights? (I only suggest this because I fear my heavily planted tank may require a CO2 injector, I could be wrong) Or will fertilizers be enough for my tank?
Ohthankyou :D Poor Baller, though, he got a nasty resistant strain of somethin' scary and it ate his lovley tail away. He's now no longer an HMDBT, hes more of a triple tail lookin' straglly thing :P Oh, well. He's a sweet thing, ugly fins or not ;D <3
And yeah- I didnt know for the longest time! Just make sure its in the right section so itll be answered quickly.
@roypattonphoto hmm, so if I use CO2 inject I get wild and crazy growth? Doesn't sound that bad. If that is the only effect then I might consider it. The thing is I was under the impression that having CO2 in a low light tank would be counterproductive and could even harm my plants (i.e moss) because of my low lights. It is because of this fear that I had doubts o.O Thanks for the heads up though :)
@Pew^3 Omg...the way you described Baller to me, I thought his condition would be much much worse. He still looks GORGEOUS!! (I'm so jelly...)
I heard that Excel (a carbon supplier like the CO2 injector) would do some bad things to moss o.O Assuming what I heard is accurate, could the CO2 injector be bad for the moss too? (specifically java moss)
How bad (toxic) is brown algae? Can shrimps eat that stuff?
