Hello, Everybody!
I am a new member-1st post- and started planted
aquarium when you had your convention here in Houston
last year. I converted my 75 gal fish tank to planted
and after 6 mos grew Ludwigia and Stargrass pretty
good w/ Carbo Plus. I thought that I needed more space
for both plant and fish and thereby invested in a 180
I had mediocre results-a little daily pearling and
respectable growth on plants using Seachem Flourish a
lot cheaper than Dupla 24 drops). 
I had to tear it down due to problems w/ tank that is
covered w/ warranty.
I had the replacement running for about a month now
and have algae problems and non-pearling. I know or I
think at least that the algae were result of adding
Seachem's nitrogen and phospate. Since then only used
Flourish, Potassium, and Iron - 10 ml ea/wk with
40-50% weekly water change. I have 480 watts of PC and
60 of reg flourescent(total 540) and pumps about 2 bps
of CO2 gas. 
My tank has 0 ppm NH3 & NO2. PH=7.2 and about 10-11
deg KH & GH, Temp= 82deg. I have 5 3.5 in Discus, 10
o-cats, 20 Cardina J.,and 10 hatchets and 7 Corydoras.
Can you guys help me out as to which kind and brand of
ferts to use. Is my temp to high? Any help from
anybody will be greatly appreciated. I am just
desperate to grow a nice healthy planted tank.
