  1. Macropore GOLD- For Soft Water Fish and Shrimp.

    I can't find much information about macropore gold on the forums etc. Will macropore gold still remove tannins? Will macropore gold still remove nitrogenous waste? I have bought macropore gold to soften water for discus however people same to say it makes no difference or raises gH as per this paragraph. " Now, however, it appears your meaning to try to use a water softener, which again, won't work*. Water softeners only impact gH, not kH. Additionally, as has already been mentioned, water softeners soften the water by exchanging two sodium ions for every one Ca or Mg ion they remove, resulting in a higher TDS, not lower. http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showthread.php?126778-Soft-water-or-softened-water-for-Discus-breeding-Water-Expert-professiona-please Can you please share your thoughts?
  2. Hi I'm planning on doing a 60x38x45cm tank (24x14x18") How many T5 globes will I need to light 45cm deep? I plan on growing marimo moss balls, anubias, swords, java ferns. Quite low tech, No CO2 I'd like to use 2x globes, 1 sunlight, 1 something else. Any help would be great
