    Below is a recent letter I received: "I bought your book "Ecology of Planted Tank" on Amazon Kindle. It is very helpful.

    Hey Peeps, Just checking in to see if anyone can lead me in the right direction. Have always had problems with algae of all sorts. Today is BBA. I'm wondering do I have enough light? or too much? Should I reduce the time I leave the lights on? Should I be using ferts? What are your...

    Hi Folks, There are a few CO2 test kits on the market. I'm not referring to the familiar drop checker. As I understand it, the CO2 test kits measure carbonic acid by titrating against sodium hydroxide and using phenolphthalein to indicate when the pH is 8.2 and above. The colour changes from...
