Well, we are back at it after a couple of long years of decline in the tank. Our co2 supplier, which was out of town, stopped Saturday hours. Working 40 miles away made it impossible to get over there during their business hours. The only plants that survived were the crypts and vals.
We recently found a different supplier for the co2 in the town where we work, making it so convenient for us! Plus their prices are less expensive, so that's a bonus.
We also changed out our substrate to black blasting grit. I am so happy with it! The color is a huge improvement to the looks of our tank. We have been getting in plants and I am about satisfied enough to just let it grow in. I do have some downoi coming, plus some frogbit for the overflow chambers to add matter and suck up excess nutrients.
