DIY stand (this is linked to the 75-P stand but they are all built the same way for the most part)
WeMo timer X2
GLA CO2 regulator
5LB CO2 Bottle
Gulfstream Gulfstream
Max Mix reactor medium
Eheim Classic 250 (2213)
Lily Pipe Mini
Archaea Mini Aquarium Heater 50W

Hardscape:
Seiryu Stone
Aqua Soil Amazonia

Flora:
TBD

Fauna:
Boraras brigittae (Chili Rasbora)
Cherry Shrimp
Amano Shrimp

So this is what I'm thinking for plants. I'm open to recommendations if anyone has a better idea.

I did make a trip to AFA when I got back up here, but all of the items I used for this tank I've had for months. Got the stones (and a bunch more) for my 75 from AFA, but changed my mind when I got my hands on some Unzan stone for it. Glad I finally got to use a few of them.

Wow, those plants look like they are in incredible condition. How long did it take to ship from UK to CA?

It took 4 days. The plants are in great shape. If you do decide to do it, don't over estimate. You get so much more plant mass in a TC pot than in a standard rockwool pot. I have an extra UG and an extra #45 (SR) pot left. This happened to me the last time I did TC plants.

Thanks!

From what I understand if the plant is TC it is able to be imported legally. So far I have had 2 shipments of TC plants and both have made it with no issues. (I'm not a lawyer and this is not legal advice)

Thanks! I think you might be right, but all the other stones I had did not look right to me. Unfortunately most of them were too big for this tank as they were supposed to be used in a 75-p.

Day 3 ammonia is over 4ppm. Doing 50% water changes every day and got the co2 cranked. Some of the UG is yellowing and some of it is getting a little greener.
