Not sure. Never really tested for it. I do 50% water changes every week with RO/DI water so it would probably level things out if it did.

Thank you.

It does take managing and commitment. If you would have seen it at the end of last year, it was not at all spotless. I had let things go and was only doing topoffs, and the filters were a mess. After re-doing everything, I have made it a point to stay on top of things.

Well, so far so good. I haven't seen any of that black algae starting on the anubius nana and hope it stays that way.

Some pics I shot the other night because I know we all like looking at photos..

They are 4-6". I went to a landscape place and picked them out. The smaller ones I ordered a bag online through Home Depot.

dewalltheway Just finished up with my 50% water change and a little bit of trimming on the jungle val. Been making little adjustments all week and added another 304 filter because I felt the two 404's weren't enough. Snapped a couple of pics after the water change and added one of my filter wall behind the tank. Enjoy!



This pic was actually this afternoon..

Very much so!

I am glad that you find my tank inspirational, thank you. The stones haven't been in there very long so we will see how clean they stay. If you look back in my journal, you will find I was dealing with some pretty nasty algae so I decided to remove all my Eco-Complete and wash it all before re-doing my scape this time. I am hoping this will help but also keeping your filters cleaned and water changes help a lot as well. I will do a 50% water change about every week to 2 weeks.

Freemananana The wood is seriously impressive and I had never thought of using the pressure washer at a car wash. Brilliant. Good job. The scape came out amazing for a tank this size and I love how it looks like a forest. Absolutely a great tank.
