Great Tank!

I just read through the entire log. You've come a long way! I have a 20 gallon i've had going for a few months too, i think you're really doing well scaping for the dimensions.

Sub1117 Hey synaethetic, I may have missed it, but what's your exact dosing schedule? The Colorata color is amazing!

Mumford Love the setup, you've swayed me into getting another light so I'll have 4 bulbs as well lol.

With the amount of light you have, how often are you keeping them on?

synaethetic Thank you, Aquaaurora

Co2 is my limiting factor at the moment. My aging eheim classic 2213 is barely cutting it these days. It powers my Mixmax co2 regulator which has a spinnning impeller to breakup the injected c02 bubbles. When the flow slows from buildup in the filters mechanical media, the impeller stops spinning and the c02 has a harder time breaking up, leading to a pocket forming with waterflow kind of falling through it.

I'm thinking of upgrading to a 2215 and using some broader mechanical filtration to allow better water flow, thus powering the regulator more efficiently allowing better c02 levels.

AquaAurora I envy how lush your tank is coming in! I am too much of a cheap ass to use co2 (and too lazy to mess with diy co2) so I'll never get that lushness XP

synaethetic One month update. Had some nice bushes trimmed up, and then the moneywort decided to float up one day... It had been growing sense foliage but not many roots, anyone know why it would do this? Everything else is growing good, got a patch of Staghorn algae on some hc but it's fairly dormant for now.

umarnasir335 This is probably the most evolved tank on this site. One heck of a tank in very capable hands

synaethetic Incoming new carpet. Leveled it out and replanted. Trimmed the DD on the left which is growing the quickest at the moment. Things are looking good, got algae under control for now. Going to have some bushes soon if I prune and dose accordingly.

synaethetic Thanks Jalopy!

Here's the beginning of the new chapter... Aquasoil is getting pretty worn. Still looking to start a new tank soon with fresh aqua soil. Good news is the BBA is pretty much nonexistent in the new scape ... Keeping my fingers crossed it will stay away this time. Attachment 368049
