Alkalinity dose looks to be insufficient, will have to raise slightly during next water change.

Water change day, all parameters good, tank is just ticking along nicely! I really want to upgrade and make changes but its so perfectly balanced at the moment that i am reluctant to do so!

This tank has so far stood as an experiment and a learning curve for me to get my head round freshwater chemistry, especially when it comes to plant life, fertilizer dosing and CO2 injection.
It started life as just a community tank with a few plants and eventually fell into a state of disrepair and plagued with algae.
After some careful research (and a few mistakes) i now have a tank that thrives with crystal clear water and runs 99% algae free and is generally perfectly balance requiring very little cleaning maintenence.
Its by no means a show stopping aquascape as seen in some planted tanks but i do hope to pass the lessons learned into then building an interesting aqua scape in a future upgrade.
