A little update on the tank. I finally got my camera back today and quickly took quite a few pictures but I can't post them right now because my laptop decided to crap out on me a week ago so right now all I have is an iPad. I have no clue how to get pictures from a sd card onto the iPad so I will have to wait until I can get to a computer and upload them to photobucket.
I added a FEW new plants to the tank yesterday. First of all I need to give a huge thank you to a friend of mine that i think is the most giving, funny, and just all around great guy Oleg(OVT). This is a person that knows the true meaning of RAOK is. Those of you that have dealt with him before I'm sure already know and those that haven't I need to tell you that this guy is an asset to this hobby. If I didn't live 2,000 miles from him I would definitely hang out with him and buy him a FEW adult beverages. And if I ever find out where he likes to go have dinner he will be getting a gift card in the mail. So with that being said Thanks again Oleg.
After adding the plants and doing weekly maintenance I noticed my hose from my overflow was dripping water on top of my sump. Apparently there is a pin hole in the hose right next to where it attaches to the sump inlet so I placed an order for a new hose and while I was ordering it I decided to get a new return pump. I was wanting to get another koralia pump to help add some flow now that its grown in fairly thick and keep the co2 flowing well but decided I didn't want another pump in the tank. So now I will be using a Mag drive 9.5 for a return pump instead of the Mag drive 7 that I'm using now. This should help out quite a bit with the flow.
