The 7 cardis I've got left have been doing good, my water is about 5-6 degrees hardness out of the tap, so not crazy high... pH is acidic from the Aqua soil
I've actually never been to Vancouver (other than driving through). Don't think I'll be going any time soon but I will let you know. I tried to order some Maracyn from J&L, but they wanted over $12 to ship a tiny little 8 packet box from Burnaby to Kelowna. I will have to wait until I can get to Petsmart next week :/
I have no way to drill the light bars to the stand (I can't believe I forgot about that) so I think I might just strap them to the wall for now.
Hi nice stand good job. If possible and if you can try to hang the lights from the ceiling with hooks rather than those brackets it would look a lot cleaner and better but that's just my opinion. Good job. :thumbup:

The cyano was growing in there from having it DSM for over a year. I filled it up a bit too much once and the little amount completely took off. I have always had cyano issues in my tanks and I don't know why, maybe excess phos in my tap water... I have tried adding more flow (powerheads) and dosing KNO3, nothing has ever really made it go away. I took down my other tank because of it. I will try the peroxide.
Here is a pic from my old tank. yuck.
I don't want to put holes in the ceiling. Might have if it was my own place, but I'm renting
I manually removed everything I could, pulled out some of the HC that wasn't doing so well, drained the water down to about half, and put in about 60ml of hydrogen peroxide. Too much, but I'm going to let it sit for a while and then change out half the water.
Nitrates are there, around 10-20 ppm I mean my test kit could be off, but I'm still adding dry ferts on water changes... tank looks good today, plants don't look like they suffered much damage from the hydrogen peroxide overdose, it is an older bottle so it is probably not as strong as a fresh bottle.
