Right...lol...those are similar to the type I currently use.
They work great once set, but as you said, it's kind of guess work getting them spot on. I also can't begin to guess how many times I've been working under the stand and have my arm hit the timer and spin the clock setting around...lol

Awesome tank. I love the Rotala verticularis. Where about in NJ are you? I'm out in Warren county, and there just isn't any LFS with a good plant selection. Got any recommendations? I was thinking about driving to Fishtown USA in Ramsey to check it out.

I would say Fishtown is one of the best stores in the area as far as plants go. Also Pet Shanty in Scotch Plains is good, sometime hit or miss on the plants but they do list inventory on there website. You should also join a plant club...it was the best thing planted tank wise I have ever done.

Any new pics Coltonorr? Wondering if your having any troubles with any of your plants getting used to the MS? I put some Heteranthera Zosterifolia "star grass" in and it melted from the bottom up, not sure if it was from the MS or not having CO2 installed in time. Funny thing is, the Blood stargrass i put in is thriving!

If you peer into the glass, and look real close, you can see my soul!
