I have CO2 on one tank, my 40. All of my tanks have either bristlenose plecos or clown plecos except my african tank. They do a great job of keeping everything clean. My lighting for the most part isn't special, yeah some tanks have good lights, but nothing compared to most peoples equipment. The angelfish tank just runs 4 48 inch 6500k daylight fluorescent tubes. Same ones you'd pick up at Walmart for a few bucks.

So do yu think co2 would help this situation because I can make one myself but if I don't need it that would be great! And do u have co2 in your African tank?

I honestly don't think you need it. Like I said, I only run it on one tank and you commented on how green all my tanks are And nope, no CO2 on my african tank, just a few java ferns and 3 of those regular bulbs like I have of my angel tank and 1 aquarium/plant bulb to help show the fish's colors. I'm the worst about doing anything special for my plants except the 40, only reason I CO2 on it is to keep the pH low for my GBRs.

It's a disease without a cure.

Well, unless you have a hubby who says he will not move out the couch in the family room for one more tank. *Grumbles*

Haha, no actually. I clean some of them once a week, some every other week. I seriously do nothing special at all. I have all kinds of ferts handy and hardly ever remember to use them. My fish do the plant cleaning, I just clean the gravel, sand, glass and filters.

Funny thing is, give me a house plant and I kill it within a week.
