I am bias but I love the inland East Bay (east of the Caldecott Tunnel). I feel you on rent in SF, or Cali in general. That said, there are more than a few enthusiasts around the area.

|davidj12||Decommissioned. I'm moving so I had to tear this tank down. It was really rough as it was my first large planted tank, but I'm excited about the next one when I move to The SF Bay Area. At least I'll be close to AFA!|

|AnotherHobby||Do you have any larger pics of your tank? I'd love to see a link to a full res or near full res shot.|

Good news! It's all but clear now.
Things I think I did to fix it.
Last sunday I did two HUGE water changes in a row.
I kept the light off for 3 days and then on the 4th and 5th day I had it on for 3hrs. Right now I'm back up to the normal photo period.
I moved the UV sterilizer from the left side of the tank (where the water flow was very fast) to the middle of the tank where the flow is quite a bit less.
No ferts at all for the last week.
I'm going to do a WC tomorrow and start dosing light ferts.

The Max Mix is awesome and cheap too!
I like the pollen diffusers but I really wanted to keep as much out of the tank as I possibly can. Also when I had an in tank diffuser it was a pain to keep clean.

Very lush growth still. Nice.
Have you thought about using a ADA pollen glass diffuser? I have used one and they are my go to diffusion method for all tanks, even large ones. A bit pricey but worth it as they are pieces of glass art themselves.

Trust me, the green water WILL disappear, whether you use a UV or not. It's only a matter of time. It seems like set-ups with high enough light always go through a greenwater phase.
Speaking of atomic inline diffusors, mine sucks. It worked for a few months until it began to leak. The c02 would rather seep out of the cracks in the plastic than diffuse through the ceramic portion of the unit. =\
Maybe I will try out the ista max mix reactor.
