So we are quite a ways in to this whole project.
I have been running without co2 for a couple months now.
The light is 1 39w 6500k.
I only run the eheim filter.
My java fern was replaced. With narrow leaf Variety because the reg version grew out of control.
Also the barclaya got very big and tried to flower many times but never managed too. Then died back and is now maybe 5 blades and only 5-6"s tall and not seen much if ever.
The Anubias nana petite was moved back to intermingle with the red lotus.
The porto velho after a year was a viney eye sore and had very few leaves so I pulled it out from the tank. The Tropica 049 I had more luck with and managed to get it to take over most of that side of the tank that it was on. But when co2 crashed so did it and it is now slowly recovering though maintains excellent root structure.
3 Bluefin Killi
1 Lesser Killi

I have been monitoring my water parameters as follows:
All fert. and water changes were done after testing that day.
----------Kh Gh Ph TDS
Oct. 1 :---60 60 7.0 99 ------------- Added 4 gallons RO changed 5 gallons RO
Oct. 3 :-------------83
Oct. 6 :---------------------------------- 1/4 tsp MKP and Trace
Oct. 8 :---60 60 6.8 91 ------------- 15 gallon RO water change
Oct. 9 : ------------79
Oct. 13 :--50 60 7.0 83---------------- 1/4 tsp MKP and Trace
Oct. 15 :--40 60 7.2 82 ---------------10 gallon RO water change
Is this unstable? I noticed as my Kh dropped my Ph rose. I have read that a low Kh can result in Ph drops but this is a Ph rise? Should I be concerned about this much fluctuation in Ph and/or Kh? Is this normal?

Boktober Fest PICS!
Orchid Lilly -Barclaya Red Flower Bulb
I have began dosing ferts slightly. A micro mix and some potassium. My Barclaya red has a flower bulb! Righteous. I thought it wasn't doing well but i guess it was just in one of its rests. It is a beautiful and fun plant with interesting perks.

|2in10||Very nice tank|

Moved some things
Trimmed and replanted some things
I had a couple months with no co2 after a period of intense co2 misting which caused a potassium deficiency (you can see where in pics)
Tank is recovering, almost all algae is dead (and has been for a while), only some green spot algae on anubias petite, and some kinda brown dirtyness algae? I dunno. It doesnt scrub off and its only one filter stuff(intakes , spraybars) and leaves that aren't doing well or anubias. Its not on any wood, or most plants.
TDS is 200-250 PPM
PH is in low 6s
One of my 3 Crypt. Nurii
Staurogyne cutting, you can see where it hit deficiencies
GHOST SHRIMP WUT WUT
Java Fern when lights turn on...
Java Fern at 5pm Can you say Pearls
