Subscribed. Did you figure out what light fixture you want? I have a 75 cycling and trying to figure out "cheap" light(s) to put on it.

temporary tanks for the time being...

I think I'm just gonna yank it it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. That dw is not staying there I plan on moving it. My girlfriend rearranged because she was bored and now she's complaining about how it looks.....so now I get to spend hours getting it just right again. Yay :/

I yanked out all of it but the small amount of dwarf Anubias I have attached to the rock I think it looks a lot cleaner now.

If only I could get my swords to grow....

Believe it or not there is a red tiger lotus hiding in this tank. Of course when I want them to grow tall, I get that short compact growth I've always wanted in my other tanks......

You might be better off without the CO2. your blyxa might start getting wat to big to be a foreground plant with it!

I have 3 6500k t8's ATM

It just looks bright because I took the pic during a wc and the tank wasn't completely full

Im currently dosing 6ml of excell daily

I have not had to fertilize this tank yet(except root tabs on start up). I actually still have to do large wc to keep my N and P down......it's like the tank is even planted. The plants aren't dying but they aren't growing either.

I also want the fugeray si I can go topless. I hate having to balance the fixtures on top of each other just to open the top

I meant rayII I think a fugeray would not be sufficient.
