Your tank looks amazing. I might have to look into the light you have. I also have the same co2 diffuser you use, its the best for the money. You get a diffuser, bubble counter and check valve for under $15 and it works perfectly even at lower pressures. I run mine at 20psi.

Thank you!!! I believe everybody can do a better scape than mine. My scape have changed a little bit recently due to hair algea. I have to take the drift wood out and retie the moss. I will take some pics.

Here we go, I had to take the DWs out of my tank and put the moss in an acrylic tank to treat for hair algea. Hopefully I have time to retie the moss and put the DW back in the tank.

When u started this tank how long was the lights on when u had them turned on. What was the time limit and did it change any?

I've been referencing the tropica app and they state to start with 6hrs but I have a med light set up so I was wondering if I should increase time?

Good question!
I changed the light time period many times:
When I started, the lights was on 10 hours a day.
Then boom...algea...I reduced it to 6 hours a day...
After I got the pressured CO2, I started to add 1 more hour every 2 weeks and stop at 8 hours a day.
I think the plants should do fine now with 8 hours of light a day

its really hard to get out especially when its new and dry, but if you put something thin between the blue gasket and the clear plastic and pry softly, it should come out. Just dont do it too hard you can crack the plastic. You can also blow into the bottom with the cap unscrewed and it should pop out.

It is really hard to get the disc off, I have to use tools like tweezers to take it out to fill water. As suggested, you can use sewing needle to go between the disc and the diffuser but have to be careful!!!

Go on ebay and search for 3 in 1 CO2 diffuser. It will come out but you have to look for the sellers in the US if you wanna get it fast. It will be under 13$ with free shipping.
I never own a drop checker before. Hope someone will answer your question!!!

10 gallon tank aquascaping

I have been trying to use dry ferts for my tank since last week. And it is really different. My plants grow stronger and faster in a week. Here a shot before and after trimming

Before


After


Baby tear and dwarf pennywort are taking over the right side...especially baby tear, it not the background plant anymore. It runs to middle ground and if there no driftwood, they will run to foreground and cover my DHG





And a pic of my red cherry shrimp, why does he look like a red rili shrimp?
