co2 is somewhere between 1 to 2 bubbles per second, light is 36 W PL, think they need strong light, as my light is just above the tonnia. doesd NPK and micro fertilzer. not very sure what is the KH and PH.

wish you successs on tonnia..

judging from what i see
2ft is not really suitable for TIger Lotus
the Lotus plant will overgrow
tonnia tend to grow better in soils like ADA soil

u need stronger lights coz ur glosso is going up but not creeping around
do take note that when u use higher light = the rest of the stuff also muz increase

yes agreed with you...
Tonnia is growing quite good... reaching water surface soon.
Tiger lotus is a real headache.. leaves too big and block all the lights.. might remove it from this tank though. As for the glosso, all turn brown and most of them floated, and now having a nice carpet of riccia and glosso floating around.. will need to remove that too.. because it is taking too much lights...
