Thanks everyone for you comments;
-The tnak I had for a while, to redo it to the plant tank cost a small fortune, but well worth it!
-Thanks for the support. The bow front is pretty cool, but it takes away from usable space for planting. You are a person I can se form lots of posts of how supportive and informative you are, and us newbies thank you.
- Thanks for the comments, and I will sure keep the pictures coming, as I already changed things around a little.
-Thanks for the info of the carbon, I was wondering that. After the bag is finished I will try your idea. I will also let the some plants grow, but I cannot promise, because of the vision I want for this tank to be. Concerning the overflows, I did not have a choice in the matter. I bought the tank for the very large fish I had, and it is the way it is. I understand the principle of turbulence and CO2/O2 Oxygen exchange, but are there any other ideas out there for the sump and biological filtration. I also have the pressurized tank for CO2, however, I am keeping the bubble count hight as I am having trouble regulating the Reactor/water/CO2 equation. I am sure of wasting a lot, but at the rate I am using it keeps the ph @ 6.9. If I start to use less CO2 the PH rises..... so no it is not perogative to waste CO2....
-thanks for the comments. Yeah I have been thinking of changing the background, just been to lazy to do it yet.. And I am a planned person by nature, but I will take your suggestions and take it into account in the future..
Thanks again, and new and better pictures coming....stay tuned.
