 What  is  your  Kh  and  Gh?  High  pH  is  not  a  problem,  it  is  dependent  on  Kh,  pH  can  be  brought  down  with  CO2  injection.
 
 If  your  CO2  injection  is  OK,  and  you  maintain  20  -  30  ppm  CO2  in  the  water  irrespective  of  what  pH  you  started  with,  along  with  micros,  macros  and  light  the  algae  will  vanish  in  about  a  months  time.

 KH  is  around  20  and  GH  is  unmeasurable  with  my  kit.  Let  see  what  I  can  do  to  boost  up  the  CO2..  As  of  now  with  the  reactor  I  am  using  the  CO2  is  not  much  dissolving.  What  the  best  to  use..  Mine  is    almost  a  115  Gallon  tank.

 Kh  of  20  is  high,  no  wonder  your  pH  is  also  high,  the  equlibrium  pH  will  be  around  8.0  or  a  bit  higher,  what  is  the  pH  of  the  water  straight  out  of  the  tap  I  am  curious  to  know  this  to  check  if  my  guestimate  is  right,  but  plants  will  grow  in  it.
 
 Can  we  meet  at  ASK  this  Sunday,  and  can  you  bring  along  a  bottle  of  water  as  sample.  I'll  check  it  out  with  whatever  kits/instruments  I  have  at  home.
 
 115  gallons  is  a  big  buddy.  My  main  tank  is  almost  the  same  52  x  24  x  21  inches.  I  used  the  glass  CO2  reactor  which  Rufus  makes.  I  use  the  output  of  an  Eheim  2217  to  drive  the  reactor.  CO2  is  a  pressurised  system  at  1  bubble  every  3  seconds.
 
 I  have  shifted  to  another  reactor  now,  primarily  because  the  glass  one  broke  after  about  4-5  years  of  use  while  I  was  away  and  no  one  at  home  noticed  it.  My  wife  had  a  tough  time  fixing  the  spare  glass  reactor  I  had  in  place.  The  glass  reactor  coupled  with  an  Eheim  2217  worked  like  a  charm.

 Supposing  that  I  have  10  ml  of  25%  Glutraldehyde,  how  much  water  should  I  add  to  dilute  the  concentration  to  1.5  %  Glutraldehyde?  Can  someone  help  me  please  as  I  have  totally  forgotten  the  things  I  have  studied  in  the  school.

 Hi  Madan  and  Amiava,
 Do  post  your  results  with  Glutaraldehyde  here.
 My  results  are  good  till  now.
 Although  I'm  dosing  a    bit  more  than  the  seachem  recommended  dose  for  excel.  i'm  dosing  10ml  of  1.5%  solution  /15G  everyday.
 What  is  the  dose  you're  using  Madan?
 
 Also,  if  anybody  wants  to  try  out  Glutaraldehyde  rather  than  buying  the  whole  bottle  -  i  can  send  you  small  quantities.  Pm  me  for  that.

 What  is  the  dose  you're  using  Madan?
                 

 
 I  am  using  about  10ml  for  10  gallons  in  my  small  tanks.  I  am  also  adding  them  to  my  main  tank  with  CO2  injection  at  the  recommended  dosage.
 
 There  seems  to  be  no  added  advantage  in  the  tanks  with  CO2  injection.
 
 Where  as  the  small  tanks  which  have  fry,  the  browning  and  thinning  of  the  moss  has  stopped.  Also  importantly  I  would  get  brown  algae  depositing  on  the  glass  within  3-4  days  of  a  water  change  which  has  completely  stopped,  there  is  no  sign  of  algae  at  at  all.  The  fry  in  the  tanks  do  not  mind  the  increased  dose.

 HI  ,
 
 I  am  using  10ml  solution  for  my  15  gallon.  Like  Madan's  tank  there  is  no  sign  of  brown  algae  now.  Earlier  a  bit  of  that  was  present  here  &  there  but  they  are  gone.  
 
 The  plants  are  in  good  shape.  I  have  10  sarpe  tetra  and  2  clown  loach  there  ,      they  are  quiet  ok  and  eating  well.
 
 regards

 results  are  very  much  encouraging  and  IMHO  those  with  smaller  tanks  (15-30G  )  and  not  wishing  to  invest  in  pressurised  CO2  should  use  Glutaraldehyde  instead  of  DIY  CO2.  it  is  easy  to  use  and  no  maintenace    Cheering
