Hello all, a newbie here. I'm having a hard time finding the definitive guide to dealing with algae in a planted aquarium. The links in this thread are all busted. Is there an up to date link you can recommend?

Thanks!
Ed

1 teaspoon (tsp) is 5 ml. 1 tablespoon (tbsp) is 15 ml. He meant tablespoon, not teaspoon.
Confused me as well.

I found a healthy balance of fish and CO2 along with a little bog above the tank a couple birds was all that was needed to have plants grow so fast i had to rip them out in hand fulls. To add all those ferts to the water is or would have been beyond crazy. A little eco system and i had no issues growing most plants including such as downoi and HC..

Speaking of which the entire system from my old tank could be for sale. 90 gallon drilled corner tank
Undergravel heaters
eco marine led lighting
metal hallide fixtures 3
Water proof shelf to create the bog area and water fall that flowed into the top of the tank.
Co2 bottle needle valves mixing chambers
co2 meters
EHIEM PROFESSIONAL 300 I BELIEVE IT WAS
