Yeah my next thing is going to be getting the inline atomic diffuser and a hydor inline heater all for my canister filter setup. Trying to make the inside of the tank look a lot cleaner as far as aesthetics go.

Sorry to hear about the fish/loach. I almost went with a milwaukee reg, but I'm thinking about the GLA V3 system now...

Tank is still looking great!

Thanks! Yeah def go with the GLA V3. I switched the Milwaukee to my 125g so when accidents happen, I have a far bigger margin in that error. The 24oz paintball system with the Atomic V2 is amazing!!! I haven't had to tinker with the needle valve since I got it set right for the tank. Recently ran out of nitrogen and nearly phosphates. Def showed up in the new growth I was getting. Dosing today and hope to see a quick turn around.

Went away for a while and you can see the lack of phosphates and that imbalance have seemed to cause some GSA that you can see on the back. I tested the water to confirm my suspicion I had based on research done here. With my tanks I know for sure when this shows up, my phosphates have been zero each time.

Totally understand how the GSA is such a pain when it attaches to the back of the tank...so hard to completely clean -__-

Yeah I'm doing a trim today so I'll be able to get in there with a razor blade and scrape it all off. Trying to find more plants I want to add. Right now I only have about 7 different ones.

tank looks nice. Have you thought about adding a dark backgrown cover on the glass to hide wires/gadgets and place focus on the greens in the tank?

Thanks! Yeah, I've just never done it before. I'm actually thinking about hanging one of my black acoustic panel behind the tank to make the background dark. I have quite a few of them since this is in my office at the recording studio.
