A good way to do this is to set your O2 (or air, more precisely) inverse to your photoperiod (and C02) with a timer. This way your pumping in CO2 when the plants need it for light reactions, and O2 when the plants need it for dark reactions.

Like I said earlier, tank looks great.

You noticed... I actually, for a few days, was injecting too much. That's why the O2 was running. Thank you for the complements though!

I am planning on adding a black background.

I will also explain some of the issues that I have had/have and how I am dealing with them.

Looks great mate!
group those stems together next time you clip, stems tend to look beter in a bunch rather than in a line. Love the greenage on the right front, nice jungle playground.
Good luck with your adventure,
Your pal,

Yeah, they got thin from lack of light(I assume). Things are looking better now though. I will post pic tomorrow.

Still haven't done the background yet but here is a quick update.

I still haven't figured this camara out. The pics look bare but the tank and plants are really quite thick. The pics really don't do it justice....

Really nice man. Nice rainbows and that Ram is spectacular. Tell me, are you using RO water because some of the plants appear to be the type that like softer water?

Thank you! Nope. No RO. All tap water. I have been blessed with pretty soft water. I have some updated pics here also. It has been a while and I also received a new T5HO for Christmas from my awesome wife! Its a 6x54watt fixture but I am only running 2 and sometimes 4. I still think that I need more flow in the tank, even though I have major hardware in eye view...

L. Repens. The colors really started coming out of them.

I just did a huge trim on the tank too. I was about to do a rescape but the Pulchers are breeding again and I didn't want to disturb the nest...
