Mastertech that is one magnificent planted tank. Very very beautiful.
I apologize for asking this question in your thread. I couldn't find out how to start a new one. I just started a 10 gallon tank which includes LED lighting, bio wheel filter, heater, gravel, air pump, thermometer, and a sticker thermometer. I've treated the tap water with API Stress Coat then I used API Quick start which for those who don't know is a bacteria supplement that "Allows Instant Addition of Fish." I find this hard to believe because I've poured the amount in (10 ml per 10 g) and have had no results in reducing ammonia. I've had the tank set up with this solution since Saturday, seven days ago. My question is, why isn't my ammonia levels decreasing?

Thank you.

Damn....look at that hardscape though. I'd make cat calls to that hardscape man, great job. I can't wait to see how this looks as you keep only the desired plants in this.

Beautiful!! I love the hill you've created. I wish my first planted tank looked like this! May I ask how you built that hill without having the dirt slide down?

Probably a Ray 2. Finnex makes a Fugeray, a Fugeray Planted and a Ray 2.

It's impressive what you've done with a standard 10g, very nice. Seems like that HC is begging to be trimmed.
