The water level I kept low to help the filter get some more water flow into the corner. Taking a hob
from a ten gallon and trying to get the water flowing in all of the corners is not easy. The power of gravity gives the water coming out some more oooomph. I wanted to wait until my next payday to get the bigger filter/pump, but I wasn't sure if the tadpoles would be happy without the movement and lack of oxygen. The poor things were in a bucket for about a week and mama that I am, i worried over them a bunch. I am gonna raise the water level with the new filter and do the co2
then. 'Coarse I should ask, do you think I am gonna need a bigger filter and more movement? I do want to get some small fish in here, but can't afford to yet.
I can forget the bubblers, and any advice with the co2
is appreciated, I've never run a tank this big, and this planted. And the dynamics of a 29 g planted are allot different from a 10g.Any advice is appreciated!!
The plants have been in there less then 48 hours and already some of them have an inch worth of growth, most of them have new leaves on the stems and I can barely see through to the back like I could yesterday!!
I am so excited!!!
In addition to the light below it gets alot of indirect light from a western facing window it's near, and about an hour of direct sun. I'm not sure if it offsets the lack of overhead light, but I thought it would help some of the higher light plants I've got in there.
To edit: I raised the water level till just under the output. There is more surface movement, but almost none in the bottom corners.
