Either way, it is a stunning tank! Thanks for sharing it with us.
A polymerized isomer
of glutaraldehyde known as polycycloglutaracetal is a fertilizer for aquatic plants[citation needed
]. It is claimed that it provides a bioavailable source of carbon for higher plants that is not available to algae. Though not marketed as such due to federal[where?
] regulations, the biocidal effect of glutaraldehyde kills most algae at concentrations of 0.5–5.0 ppm
] These levels are not harmful to most aquatic fauna and flora. Adverse reactions have been observed by some aquarists at these concentrations in some aquatic mosses
, and vascular plants
