I love to look at planted tanks but I can't be fiddling with fancy lighting, CO2, EI dosing etc. - I like the undemanding ... BUT I must say my temperate tank is looking greatly improved - minimal algae and lots of new growth on java fern, thanks to daily dose of Easycarbo, and it's low tech enough - even I can't complain about using a plastic pipette to add a couple of ml daily
I'm also using netruo c02, it's the same stuff more or less as easy carbo, but a wee bit cheaper. I've just noticed some of my new growth java ferns are also translucent at the tips, not sure if this is normal or not, I've never paid much attention to them before!
I dose at the recommended levels but don't think I've noticerd much improvement to growth rate yet. I started dosing around the time I got some ottos in there, though, which are definitely the main reason the algae is under control. (Introduced them a couple of months ago).
