  1. Default lighting an issue?


    0 Not allowed!
    I recently started a new tank, i used some driftwood, and so i have alot of tannins in the water still, and the lighting appears to be quite dim, despite that all of my plants seem to be doing fine. Should i get some brighter lights? or just try to remove some of the tannins from the water? or is this not a problem at all? thanks.

    Your plants seem fine and tannins are a temporary issue, I see no need for a solution..
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Exactly, if your plants are fine and everything seems balanced, why would you make changes?

    If you wish to remove some of the tannins, add carbon to your filter. They'll come back again when you stop using carbon, but not as much.
