Getting some good growth, added some floaters a second filter fluval 205 with inline CO2 reactor. Suspended the light 18" above the tank.
light suspended really allowed the plants to take off runners going everywhere

|VAtanks||trying to fix it without adding the uv light, i have one but im trying to get the light time down and all the other stuff balanced out before I go that route...Its actually clearing I moved some bulbs around changed the photo period upped the CO2 went to the EI dosing system, and rearranged the filter media set up in my canister, besides the algea on the back wall its clear no green water. Im getting rid of my snails though those little golfball slime machines plow through plants they dont eat them, The ones i have enjoy climbing to the top of my tank and just letting go and then they land on plants breaking them off......|

|VAtanks||Thanks its a mess still trying to get lights/CO2 fertilizer dosing hammered out. First planted tank with co2 and high lighting, so I spend hours reading posts here. Been in the beach for about 14 years now....I like it but i miss Maine.|

Yes the water is green....yes the plants need to be trimmed....
Pretty good looking angel if i do say so, nice red in the eyes
Another good shot of my angels, I am quickly tiring of micro bubbles in the tank though.
Few more angels they love to be photographed....better quality camera is in order kodak easy shot...not great

CO2 finally installed. not the final set up but works for now. Want to go with an inline reactor on a Fluval 205.
All that CO2 and roots explode everywhere
Inline heater plumbed from home depot. FX5 hose cut threaded barbs used to connect and reduce Fluval hose down to 5/8 teflon tape and silicone used on threads to mate the barbs to the flex fluval hose...no leaks
