audioaficionado Craig, hang on to everything for now. Once you heal up and the winter cabin fever sets in, you'll be back with a vengeance on your 220 set up. You have lots of time to plan the next over the top scape and wow us once again.

Da Plant Man Sometimes, Craig, I think you like tearing down tanks only to set them back up in a few weeks/months :P

Thats really sad though. My Mother and Sister got in a car wreck a few weeks ago, its not pleasant. Hope you heal well!

I want a high end UV to handle good flow and be built like a tank then run a CO2 reactor after it. Will set it up with a gate valve to fine tune flow throught the seperate loop.

Try dosing pump with Excel(see bulkreefsupply). I assume there are no inverts correct? Water changes how often? CO2 can kill, so can Excel, but a metering dosing pump and a decent timer should prevent any issues.

110mls per day added 15 min after the lights come on. You can add the trace mix to this also(straight Excel).

It's not likely CO2 is worth it with this plant biomass even if you added 2x this amount.
