  12. Flourish over flourish excel

    Hi [MENTION=15952]WhyNot[/MENTION] My 2ft planted shrimp tank has been running on ONLY dino pee (similar to flourish but more concentrated) and dino spit (similar to excel but more concentrated) for approx 3 years now, so I can testify that CO2 injection is not always necessary for growing healthy plants. It really depends on several factors, like volume of tank, plant mass, livestock level, lighting. Plants need carbon to grow, and although the carbon usually comes from CO2, it can also be sourced from liquid carbon additives (glut, e.g., excel, dino spit). However, plants will grow much slower if only provided liquid carbon, as they take up this form of carbon less efficiently than from CO2. Also don't forget that any livestock will also be a source of CO2, and that some CO2 comes from the atmosphere through the water surface. I only add a few drops of dino pee and dino spit daily. The only other things that go into the tank are shrimp food and light. The tank is ultra low maintenance. I change water about two or three times a year. Plants range from easy low light plants (java fern, subwasstertang, flame moss, fissidens, anubias, crypts, bucephalandras, bolbitus), to medium difficulty stems (pogo helferi, AR mini, HC, rotala h'ra, didiplis diandra, ludwigia brevipes, nesaea triflora, ludwigia arcuata, stauro tropica, hygrophila pinnatifida, proserpinaca palustris). All plants are healthy, but they grow very slowly. A couple of pics taken today:
