Stock filter at it's lowest setting. I'll look into that but at the same time, I don't want to run into other issues that result from stagnant, low flow areas seen in planted tanks.

Sad to hear that. Was it anything technical or, as you hinted, just time away from the tank?

I was hoping to see how it turned out. I really liked your DF!

Just had to decrease my tank count from 5 to 3. It was time consuming and I started to neglect this tank. Plus, the wife was getting on my case..lol.
