I'm loving how thick the growth is in this tank! When did you say you were getting the co2 started?

Thanks man! For the most part, I just let the plants grow...

I dose Metricide daily on the tank. That's it.

I've been breeding ramhorn snails in a marina breeder box hooked up to my spray bar for the last several weeks.

Plants showing signs of deficiency probably cuz I'm lazy with the dosing. I doubled the dosage but I think the plants are running out mid week. There is some green hair type algae that has been an issues for several months now. It's easy enough to remove manually. I think it originated from my val which took a huge hit after a trim. They hate the Metricide dosing. I stopped dosing Metricide a week ago but the Val's haven bounced back yet.

I should mention that this tub of water is so full of plants you can't see the wood or the substrate anymore. I just let things go and it's survival of the fittest at the point, it's crazy...

Added 3 ottos and 8 neons from my 12L, which I shut down today. Soon, I will retire this tank as well. Everything is getting transferred into the new 125G.

Thanks man. Much appreciated!

Today, I started removing plants. It really made a mess, therefore water chage!

I sold some plants and put some in my 125g. I'm kinda sad to see this tank go. I've really come a long way in the hobby with this tank.

Today was a sad day. I've officially retired this tank. What a great run. I learned so much about the hobby with this setup. Thanks everyone for tuning in.
