If you don't want to read on about the story of why I had a good day skip this paragraph, real important stuff is last paragraph
- Its about Macro algae supplements that I need with tank specs.
Hey everyone last night I've had a very good lucky day! I went to the LFS
because they supposedly had a new shipment today (hoping it was LR
) but it wasn't. I did get a very nice piece of base rock though, and the LR
shipment comes wensday. My tank is just about cycling (just to give you a point where my tank it). The good part though was I also got a deal on a semi limbless bristle star (think it might be a toger star) for 7 bucks (felt bad for the guy... hope he lives). But the most interesting luck was this... a worker at the fish store was talking about this macroalgae he recieves.. a spaghetti macro aglae I am pretty sure it is. But my friend who knows them very well was with me when I told him I was getting some rock. They were tlaking and the guy was light aww hell I'll give you some, and he went over to his nano tank that he had the algae at and cut off a few pieces and even gave me one! 8O It is beautiful and I had an awsome feeling leaving the store because it was the start of my Macro tank! I was also lucky at cards which was cool
Anyway back to the point... I have 2.8 watts of PC
lighting (want to get an actinic but no room under hood, and I like the color of the lights as is so no biggie). I have regular aquarium sand of about 2 inches, a 50 pounds in a 45G tall tank. The water parameters are good, 8.3 pH, temp at 80 (but am going to put fans in there), and SG
of 1.023. Hardware includes a Filstar XP3, and a 300 watt visitherm marineland heater. What MacroAlgae supplements should I be putting into the tank. It was suggested by my friend "Trace Elements", Iron, and possibly Calcium. Also is there anything else anyone can suggest that would help the growth of macroalgae? Thanks everyone! Oh and here is what my tank looks like thus far, thanks for looking!
