Thanks guys!
I made the light hanger today, and I just ordered the Aquasoil.
Things are rolling now!

Looks great boss--top notch!

I like that hanger. I haven't seen one quite like that before.

Your water is so clean.

Thanks, hydro! The carbon in the XP2 combined with a few extra fine filter pads sure cleared up the water. Too bad I'll have to take the carbon out soon because it'll suck up all of the plant nutrients.
The light bar may not be the prettiest thing ever, but I kinda like it, and you can't beat $10.

Well, TBH, the Azoo substrate is $27/ 12 pound bag. Aquasoil is $28/ 20 pound bag.
I just realized this about a week ago. I thought that the bags had the same weigh/ amount of substrate.

That's pretty lame. Well, glad I just stick with my aquasoil anyway.

The bolbitis will most likely stay in this tank. I just haven't planted it in its final position yet.
There will most likely be a LOT of petite when it's all said and done.
This tank should be up and running with everything except fish within 14 days
maybe sooner.

What is the volume comparison of each. Weight isn't the only factor...
