New pics 5/5

Trying to do an update every saturday. Here are some pictures taken from today 5/5. I want some more plants with reds in them since the whole tank is pretty much green, excluding ludwigia tops, and the scarlet temple. If anyone has some good plant packages feel pree to pm me

vincenz Beautiful rainbows. Is the red one an Irian?

aXio With a layout like that you will def. have a really ful lush tank. It's going to look good once it fills in. I miss these overgrown rainbow tanks.

2in10 Looks good, once the plants grow in I think this will be a lovely tank. Beautiful rainbowfish collection.

More Pics!

Here are some more pics. The ludwigia cuba is growing really well. The leaves have become thinner and more abundant, there are also many lateral buds. The glosso is beginning to form a carpet which should fill in within the month. If anyone has any plant species suggestions I would really appreciate it. The Carbon Doser is working really well. It is definitely a nice product and should be strongly considered by anyone who is thinking about getting one.
Recently some algae has started to grow on the glass, I hope this is just temporary and will disappear within a few weeks. Also if anyone knows what kind it is that would be cool.

kern After much deliberation I finally took the undergravel filter out, and did some layering with the substrate. First I put 1/2 inch dirt, then a 1 inch layer of playground sand, then 2 inch layer of sand and gravel mix. Also the CO2 came in, and I installed a reactor which hooks up to an aquaclear 70. It works perfect! There were some issues with outgassing from the return spout to the sump, but stuffing some pillow casing into the output completely stopped all bubbles! The pH in the mornings before the lights come on is at 7.6, and the pH is set at 6.4 throughout the day. I have a constant kH of 2. So before lights come on my CO2 is about 1.5ppm, and when lights are on the CO2 is at 24ppm. Is there anything I should change with the way the pH is? I know plants like to have a little higher pH than this but I still want the CO2 to be in the optimum range. Pictures coming soon!
