Very nice setup ! Can't wait to see it evolve.

Did you ever get an answer to your PPS-Pro questions? About the time of day to dose and the amount of Excel to put in the micro solution ?

very nice aquascape, good job on planting, maybe you could try glosso for the foreground? ricca stones with ricca tied and glosso as a mixed carpet would look great in there. also is that a custom stand?

Wow, Cool tank! Are those swords in the foreground in between the stones? If they are, they might grow too big and block the view of your wonderful driftwood.

heres a picture of the temporary co2 reactor with up-aqua atomizer before the intake of the pump...disregard the hose on the right of the reactor

here are the tiny.tiny bubbles from the c02 reactor not fully dissolved

here is the reactor at 3-4 bps...if I increased to 5-6 bps I get little larger bubbles in the reactor

the foam I used on the bottom of the reactor comes from the foam in the boxes of glass pipes, glass diffusers..from ADA or GLA..they work very well keeping most larger bubbles in the reactor and letting only co2 dissolved water and tiny tiny bubbels

im not quite sure i understand your co2 design, the up aqua atomizer makes a very fine mist, and by blowing the mist around the tank your using the tank as a large 'reactor' to absorb co2, its a much larger volume of water to absorb the co2. By sending the mist into a pump, its gonna actually churn some of the mist into larger co2 bubbles which will then be harder to absorb. If you want the mist approach with a longer suspension time, do pump>atomizer>reactor>outflow

scape looks good btw!
