Excellent work on this man. It's great to see a fellow scaper go with a canopy too. I have always loved canopys to seal if off kind of like a picture frame.
Thanks, I haven't checked this thread in awhile. But I'll be doing a complete rescape in the coming months, hopefully by the end of july. I'm getting rid of the canopy and going with an open top this time. Also, going with all ADA soil, BML xb series lights, possibly an apex controller, and some cerges reactors. But we'll see...
Are you injecting co2 inline from each side of the tank? You must don't have much flow with an additional power head... I'm curious as to how much co2 is injected. Bps. Do you like the ph controller?
Yes, I split one 10lbs co2 cylinder with two inline atomizers. I've also got two inline heaters. The flow is a bit reduced, but not all that much. I love the pH controller, because it gives me piece of mind. About a year ago I almost gassed all my fish when switching co2 tanks and redialing it all in. So I decided to go with a controller to avoid any future would-be calamities. I'm not sure how much co2 I'm pumping in there, but enough to get a full 1 unit drop in pH.
Some update pics, since it's been awhile. Some new things I've done - I restarted the tank last summer. Added approximately 9-10 bags of ADA Amazonia (9L), added 2x BML XB series Dutch LEDs, an apex controller, and am now running 3x eheim 2217's. Still have the same fish...thanks for looking
