Planted on March 26th I think, ordered co2 and ei dosing supplies.
Got them installed on March 30 and just picked up some timers, time to start!

I already commented in the other section but this looks amazing. I wish my wife liked Iwagumi more or I had the outlets to put a tank in my home recording studio. Looking forward to living your scape vicariously, I am not allowed to do another for the time being haha.

If I were to recommend anything to a new high tech tank it would be....
Keep it without inhabitants! Play your lighting and co2 to keep the alge away. Play the dosing and find the balance. Let the plants grow and then get inhabitants.
I have been able to notice algae, adjust light and co2 in just one day (day by day) and reverse the problems.
This tank is only. A week or so old and I'm already learning its needs and traits.

The hob filter was added for circulation. The non dwarf baby tears were added for biological and nutritional balance, both will be removed eventually.
