HC is growing in nicely! Unfortunately so is algae. Going to try reducing the photo period. Currently it's getting 1 to 2 bps as well which seems pretty good. Here's a pic to keep the hope alive!!!!1

Awesome looking tank, that is coming along very well. I did notice that your drop checker looks rather blue. Now this might just be how color is displayed on my screen, or it could mean that your CO2 is too low. Try increasing your bubble rate a bit, and it might also help to place you diffuser closer to your lily pipe to help distribute the co2 evenly across your tank.

Sweet piece of wood! I'm rescaping mine a bit to get that sticking out of the water look going on...

Your plant biomass is small that caused a nasty algae breakout in my tank. Threw some floaters and moss there to absorb all the extra nutrients and it cleared up just fine...

Great! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Did you get it locally? I'm looking for another one and haven't seen it in the last 6 months.

Thanks for all the kind comments on the video. I'm glad you liked it. Here's another one that's not so scary

Got the only one at moanaloa pets. I try to buy local even if it costs more, just because. These 12s will only get more popular but I remember seeing 3 at coralfish within the last 6 months.

Nerdariostomp,

I like your lily pipes. Where did you get them? I was thinking about the GLA ones for my tank.

Thanks! I got the Lily pipes from aquatic magic. They seemed to have the best pricing on a lot of things and honestly after I got them I am very pleased with everything. They ship from overseas so it does take about nine business days or so at most to get to you but the pricing is beyond comparison in my opinion.

I did take some advice though and I moved the diffuser again. Originally I tried to do that but for whatever reason it didn't work out. Looks like it is actually diffusing the CO2 with the flow of the water this time. I also reduced the photoperiod to eight hours. It was previously set to about 12. Ha ha ha!
