Hey man, the tank is looking great, who did you order the HC from, it looks great as well
I got the HC from aquariumplants.com as per a friends recommendation. was very good quality
Wait for CO2 for sure. The HC has to transition from emersed and I found the best way to avoid or minimize algae outbreaks is to blast CO2 pretty heavily. Yesterday 02:49 PM
Agree completely from what Ive read. I plan on turning this tank into a seltzer water for the first month.
