Checking out this thread and low and behold, BOULDER, CO! Just did that hike up Chataqua to the Royal Arches a few weeks ago.
Looking forward to seeing your progress!
small world =) I've never hiked up to the arch, but I hear it's beautiful! Chautauqua is still one of my favorite parks... we were thinking of renting one of the cottages for a future family vacation.
I still need a few more items before I can plant. I'm awaiting a shipment of Mekong sand for a top layer and some ADA Brightly Step 1. All that is left is the CO2 setup, and a light. I was all set to purchase the Archaea LED, then ADA announces:
want this light... but the Archaea is $80 vs. the initial pricing of ~$325 for the 45cm.
Not sure what to do.
