I'm running an inline co2 diffuser, possible it could be the problem? i've tried with and without the solenoid and same problem.

Is the Lobelia new ? It's usually purple (and larger) in its immersed form.
New leaves will be green,my Amano's use to eat it.
Are you running an atomizer ? Sounds like a blockage somewhere.How about without the check valve ?
Posted 08 April 2014 - 08:27 PM
Yeah it's an atomizer, after reading up on it people are saying it needs a pressure of 30psi?
The check valve/bubble counter combo was also blocked but seems the diffuser is aswell as still didn't seem to be working, also tried plugging in an air pump

I've got 2.one needs 2.5 bar.the other 4!
Have you tried cleaning it ,by soaking in bleach ?
Posted 10 April 2014 - 06:13 PM
I will try soaking it in bleach, only problem is it was acting as a hose extension for my filter outlet now i'll have to buy some hose for these situations -.-
Stuck a little air stone in and cable tied it to bottom of a powerhead for now, still a waste i guess but better than nothing? :/

There's 1 problem that's annoying me alot with this tank, because i've put T5 bulbs next to the T8s,
i've got to remove the full hood if i want to get my hand in the tank instead of just pushing it back abit .

Can you adjust the working pressure or is it fixed?
If you can adjust the working pressure up,to say 2.5 bar, and use the needle valve to fine tune the BPS rate.

No idea if the pressure can be adjusted or not i got the jbl proflora m500 set if that helps any?
I'm guessing it's fixed pressure because what you said surprisingly makes sense to me .
Update on tank; Alternanthera rosaefolia is doing great, so good it could be trimmed and replanted but i've got no room .
Hairgrass is looking abit rough in some parts though and the cat litter is still throwing out orange dust sometimes.

of the reg face comes off and you can use an Allen key to adjust the working pressure

Here's an update on the tank;
And of course, a problem comes with every good thing - he's had this for weeks tried dosing myxazine, seems to help but then it just booms back out!

Can't help with Lumpy,but the plants look healthy.
Posted 14 April 2014 - 10:21 PM
But i'm not sure if it'll go away on its own or not, it's so damn ugly

And here's the only decent picture i've got of the zebra plec:

It's tended to do better with a decent substrate,maybe the cat lit isn't up to speed yet?

The tank also looks quite shady to me based on the pictures, maybe it needs a bit more light at the bottom. I couldn't kill hair grass in a low tech tank with just a sand substrate so it's quite puzzling yours isn't going well. Mine didn't do well when I stopped liquid carbon so it could be CO2 related. The powerhead blowing won't give the plants enough time to pickup the CO2. Sometimes too much flow is not good.
