Somehow my tank has some upward gh issue due to calcium overdose (I guess so, cause I wanted to deal the Ca defficiency), and plant growth completely halted for 4 to 5 days and algae started appearing. This was resolved by a large wc and plants are slowly bouncing back. Algae disappearing as well. Your HMs look much more glorious than mine. Hope the overall balance of my tank will be restored soon
I somehow don't understanding this logic of dosing and then going for water changes to restore things. No offenses and just a friendly query but yes, water change is the obvious solution to any parametric problem but does that mean we have to depend on large/frequent water changes and get away with whatever we do to the tank? Isn't it more logical an attempt to balance the tank and keep regular maintenance and routine water changes keeping the tank healthy and shining?
Sorry that I hijacked your thread like this DIpankar, but your tank is a stunner now. Perfect harmony amidst the chaos of nature!!! Great job!!!
