Yes been checking petsmarts site and store for the past couple weeks. They haven't carried the gh/kh tests in that time.
This tank has been running for about a month currently. It is a 45 flat back hex with a tidepool sump. The overflow is via standpipe which I am adding a sponge prefilter to. The return is via spraybar running almost the entire 48" length back to front. Currently running two layers of filter pads and one layer of carbon in media chambers. I have a 200w adjustable heater in the sump. One large piece of manzanita branch. Plants so far are java moss, small piece of recovering hitchhiker fissidens, Lilaeopsis mauritiana, dhg, Rotala Indica, frogbit and dwl. Current cyclers are guppies lol which wont stop breeding. umm also have a air driven sponge filter and lighting is by two 55w linear cfls. substrate is mgops capped with black diamond sand.
