That's amazing! As exciting and dynamic as high intensity stem systems can be, my favorite will always been tanks like yours. The deep greens and serene feel of systems that are mostly ferns and aroids is very appealing to me. You've done a great job using the tank's depth and varieties of plants to their best advantage.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

thank you all for the positive comments :-)
i just picked up my sera co2 reactor today and very excited to install it to the system,
the old ista reactor was terrible at diffusing and i would get heaps of micro bubbles so hopefully the sera pulls through with 100% diffusion
