8 month 10g progression *Picture Heavy*

Just wanted to show how my 10g dirt tank has evolved over a 8 month period. Have learned a lot on the way, with many ups and downs. But I feel like I am getting a lot better at managing my tank now. Any critique is welcome!

this is the first tank I've seen with a near-linear progression. (a.k.a. keeps on gettin' better) Most of the time, there's a pic somewhere in the middle that's the best and we keep screwing with it and mess it up. The last pic on this is definitely the pinnacle so far. Keep going! (and screw it up lol)

Looks cool, the last picture is my favourite by far.
Good luck...

Nice! I liked it better with the wood though, think it would look good placed on the far left somehow.

Still running a single 6500K T8 like it says in tank profile, and no ferts?

I need to update the tank profile, its not running T8 no more, I've since gone with 2 spiral 23w cfl in 8 1/2" dome reflectors mounted about 15" above the substrate. According to Hoppie's graphs here on the lighting section the tank gets about 100 par maybe more or a little less. Also I'm doing EI dosing dry ferts and co2 injection. I was doing PPS-PRO but havent decided which one I prefer yet.

Thanks, for the replies It feels good to get some feedback, I've always have had a hard time getting a good layout but I'm making progress.

Ah, yes that is a substantial amount of light. I thought you were probably doing something different by now to have plants that good.

Thanks for the reply. Looking forward to more updates
