Thank you. Your tank is brilliant. I did have a couple more questions. How far do you have your light mounted above your tank? Do you feel that you are getting a advantage from your split light cycle, or is it just to better fit the times when you like to watch your tank?

If I had known then what i know now...

The light is 3 inches above the water...
I got timer so I don't have to turn them on and off, especially I have to work everyday so it is better and I dont want to leave the light on for the whole day.
Fish and plants also get used to with the light time cycle so they grow and live healthier.

Thank you so much. I also run a odyssea light above my ten galllon, and i wanted to know some of your secrets to success. How did you decide three inches above your tank would be the correct height.

If I had known then what i know now...

I wanted to give it a try since I don't have a Par Meter. And since I put it up, my plants are still growing.

My dream comes true!!! Update my DIY CO2 to a real pressured system. It is my first Time trying this and I really love it. It arrives last week and I got the tank fill up. Look how beautiful it is!!!




Put it on!!! I put the working pressure at 30psi at suggested.

I tried to put some color plants in the tank such as ludwigia red and red limnophila aromatica as suggested but really did not like it at all...took it out...introduce some new plants




Limnophila aromatica...love this plants



My small red tiger lotus didn't do well in the other tank so I put it in here to see how it goes

I also put 2 crypt wendii bronze behind the crypt wendii already in the tank and 2 stems of ludwigia sp. pantanal in the middle back...hope they will do well

I used my wife's thread to tie it on. If you see at the beginning when I first set up the tank you can see how much it grows until now
