How is that "Finnex" DD doing for you ? I am thinking of going the same route and like the Low Profile of it ... How is it for growing purposes ? I believe it's in the right spectrum from what I've read as well..
Quick update. Have not been very satisfied with my HC. It's a LOT of work to trim. I don't mind the trimming, but the clippings are a huge PITA. I was planning to pull it out. Well, queue a big spirogyra outbreak in my HC. Pulled up all my HC and got some Tropica 49 from Tom Barr to replace as an easier maintenance carpet.
it looks like you indeed reached your goal
the beauty of your tank rivals that of your inspiration for the tank
Thanks for the compliment. Hopefully after the trim and replant, I can get back to where I was or better. I'm new enough to the hobby where I'm still wondering if everything will grow back correctly after a major trim.
