Here is an example of dosing 3x a week on my 125g tank,
This is what I do.

Sunday-----Day1)Prune,Preen,Clean glass inside, 50% or more H20
change, vac/sub, 1 tsp-(KN03), 1/4-ish/tsp-(KH2P04),1/4 tsp-(K2S04),
clean glass on outside.
Monday-----Day2) 8 tsp Trace (CSM+B), 1/2 tsp-Fe
Tuesday----Day3) 1 tsp-(KN03), 1/4 Tsp-(KH2P04),1/4 tsp-(K2S04).
Wednesday-Day4) See day2
Thursday---Day5) See day3
Friday------Day6) See day2
Saturday---Day7) Nothing or prune etc.
Sunday-----Day8) See day1

I am in the process of getting Fe that I am going to dose on Sun, Tus, Thur, I'm planning on dosing 1/3 tsp.

on another note i took everything out but my equipment, fish and substrate, i re-scaped my whole tank added some new wood and trimmed my bunch plants added some new plants and cleared out a ton of java fern (i had way more than i thought i did). I will try and get some pics up latter tonight when i get home.

Here are some pics of the new scape let me know what you think. I am waiting on some of the bunch plants to grow in they are real short in the background behind the Malaysian drift wood.



you can see many of our neon's, not all of them are in view i love having lots of them.




Here is a pic of my grouping of my bunch plants, if you know what they are and could help me id them that would be great.


Every time i go to do my water test i have to get out the box for each test and i just got really old so i remembered this weekend that i had this old organizer in the garage and labeled it up and put all of my test kits and extra plumbing parts in it. below is a pic of how it turned out.


also this weekend i wanted to make it easier to do water changes so in the picture below you can see the pipe that runs down to the floor. i added this pipe this weekend so that i can turn the ball valve off that is in the middle of my water return line from my canister filter then i can open the ball valve that is between the filter and tank inlet and use my canister filter to pump down my tank for water changing made easy! i then use the same line that i hook to a pump on the other end and push the new water back into my tank to refill it through the tank inlet by opening the ball valve back up.


Any feedback on the scape would be great i will keep getting new pics up as the plants get taller in the back and as the tank starts filling in.
