Wow Zefick!!! Much better than my first planted tanks that I did! Really good job on that carpet, too! Took me several tries before I had a successful carpet. About to head over to your other thread and check that out!
Thanks! I did try to have a carpet one other time in a tank with a few AGA T8 light strips over the tank, diy co2, playsand, and no ferts. As you can imagine it did not do to well.
This HC has been through a lot. It has been attacked by algae and has survived green water and a bacterial bloom. During which I stopped dosing being worried it would help fuel the GW and BB all to figure out I was just starving my plants. But they have come back.
