Seriously impressive. I love your driftwood, excellent layout! Great flow to the tank and it is filling in nicely! Love the DIY lights. I plan to make a lower shelf on my stand for another tank and access window to the timers so I want to do something very similar. Very inspiring! Thanks for taking the time to share.
So the system may work to well as just about everything in the tank grows like a weed.
The high grow (sunset and other) needs constant pruning.. The amazon swords are massive and taking over the left hand side (theres even runnuers with lots of mini swords popping up!) I give the tank a good pruning ever 2 weeks ish and have tons of plants if anyone in the area ever needs any!
The Lilly pads are taking over the right hand side and probably need a good thinning. The only thing not going nuts is the DHG.. any ideas why?

An update is far over due! Not the best pics but i snapped a few for the sake of an update.
A while back i added a dozen or so more baby neons and a blue eye long fin bristle nose pelco. Last week I added about 20 ammano shrimp and 2 pea puffers!
Thank is growing like crazy as always. Needs a trim every other week. Only real issue is i have been battling some minor BBA. I trim the infected leaves and tried a little peroxide spot treatment.
also raised the light, lowered the photo period and lowered my fert dosing a bit. so we will see how it goes.
