Thanks guys I hope it is a lot better this time around. The main "rock" is actually two rocks, because when I went to AFA last summer that was all I had to work with so I stuck them together. As for the lily pipes I had just cleaned them so they were removed for the photo.
Yesterday I hooked the mag drive up and my "air reactor" The mag drive is very loud, so I don't know what to do. I think I will have it on a timer to run during the day and then when I'm sleeping have it turn off and the Ehiem pump turn on. Any other suggestions to reduce noise would be appreciated.
As for my "air reactor" I'm going to order the Tetra Whisper 10gal Air pump and Purigen from foster and smith tomorrow. Once I get that I will hook it up so the tank is aerated at night.
Things are growing well, I got two new otos, and my intense co2 reg (finally!) I have yet to hook it up but I will post a review when I do. The rotala will color up now that I can really have the co2 going. I also adjusted my EI doses so I will see how that goes.
I got a pre filter because I will be getting some tiger shrimp.
