Great scape. Awesome to have all that equipment at your disposal. Would have loved to take a look at your store!

Man, that is one sweet list of equipment. You do know there are starving children in Africa and you could have fed an entire village or three with what you've spent on this set up?....LOL! I have extreme aquarium equipment envy now. I liked the use of the fogging system. Good luck with the IAPLC contest.

Any new updates? How is the co2 setup? If u haven't already u should get a ada speed regulator with a adaptor for us threads and use a 5lb co2 tank. Im using co2 cartrages and im wanting somthing that is going to last longer before i need to refill. The problem is finding it.

Dude the HC. You planted it or did you just lay it down like a mat? It looks so beautiful.

Dry start seems to be the way to go with the mats. I purchased a bunch of HC mats a while back, they came on coconut fiber that turned out was infested with all kinds of algae. The HC looked awesome and was very healthy, I peeled it off as you did. They seem to all be grown immersed from every supplier. I didn't dry start so while the plant transitioned to submerged I faced a lot of algae coming up from the roots attacking any melt. It bounced back in the end but was a PITA to keep the hair algae from taking over during this transitional period. If I ever plant HC again in tanks down the road I will dry start no matter what.
