Additional Information Cool gadgets I use
• twin star algae inhibitor
• Diy co2 from Aquaero
Special techniques I used
• I did not add fish for 4 months so the establishment of the plants could happen, also this gave me time to kill off any algae spors and existing algae using hydrogen peroxide and my algae inhibitor. I also use my own recipe to fill my aquaero diy co2 canister. The last thing I did was use ribose tea to ad a slight tint to the aquarium water, most of the time you would see this as a black water tank but the blue light from the twin star offsets the red tones and makes the greens appear brighter and the darker components of the aquarium darker resulting in tvery high contrast color. So in conclusion tinting water can be for any tank not just black water.
