Today is update day!

Sadly, the large trim and rescape last week let my tank succumb to the dreaded pea soup! I ordered a 10w inline UV sterilizer today and expect it to be here by tomorrow. From what I read, this is the best (and simplest) method of clearing the water.

All of my plants show noticeable growth, so I don't think they are being stunted by the pea soup. I'm remaining vigilant in watching them though, and will have a picture up as soon as I get clear water.

I'm also excited to start using my new C02 based off of a thread on this site, switching over from DIY so I can have better control (and less maintenance).

I was wondering what would be the proper bps that I would require for my 55gal. I've read that 2 bps would suffice, but I'm open to any and all advice.

Once again, thanks for looking at my embarrassing tank (for now!). Feel free to critique.
