  1. Supposedly a "balanced tank" minimizes algae growth, but what is balance and how does it work? I get the impression that balanced conditions is defined by "optimal growth conditions for your plants, but not algae." But that doesn't really help me understand how to get there. Plants grow optimally, I assume, when all nutrients are present in sufficient amounts to be utilized by the plant. If all nutrients are present can't algae grow too? Do algae need unusually high levels of some specific nutrients? I've seen several of cory's videos and live chats mentioning this topic but I don't feel any actually address my question. Or at least I don't understand if they are explaining it.
  2. Hello! I'm thinking about planting the left-hand side of my 75 gallon. The right side is dirted, performance hasn't been anything to complain about, but pulling up runners of crypts is...not good. Makes a big mess. SO! If the left side gets planted, I don't want to go with straight dirt. I was thinking of either siphoning out the sand, adding aqua soil, then capping with the sand as the buffering capacity doesn't matter much to me, it would be more to add a layer of nutrients for roots. The other option is to just deepen the sand layer and utilize root tabs - but that seems like it would be inefficient in the long run. I can dose the water column but would like to keep it simple. What do you all think? Here's a picture for reference.
  3. Hi, how do I add Aqua Soil Amazonia in a well established aquarium that has a 4 red cherry shrimps, 2 of them are pregnant and 2 red stripes nerite snails? Right now the aquarium only has gravel.
