bitFUUL Plants are growing quickly and appear to be healthy. Very little signs of algae in this tank. Funny thing, I don't have this setup on a light timer. This tank gets light when I remember to turn on/off the lights. Tank also gets fertilizers on a random schedule; dosing macros/micros unevenly on non-sequential days.

Growth over the last 11 days.

I'm more excited about getting some large bushy blyxa!

Here are some more shots, though I don't know they they came out so bad. (should use a tripod)

bitFUUL I've decided to remake the last scape again, but with improvements this time. 3 more LED bulbs were added to the build.
Majority Blyxa again with a few downoi. ADA Aquasoil that has been cycling for about 2 months now, just planted today.
Orlando at GLA custom built me a super fine needle valve for my Atomic Regulator, wow it's amazing!

Thanks. It was about $50 worth of parts from RapidLED.com.
The bulbs on these Archaea lights aren't cheap, figured this conversion would cost less in the long run.

Haven't gotten that far yet. Currently I have tanks coming out of my ears, but no real plans for any of them. Might possibly carpet a plant and house some shrimp, but I'm up for any ideas.

3rd RUN!

After a great 2nd run, the tank was drained due to travel plans. I'm ready for a 3rd run and this time we converted the PC lights to DIY LED!















Currently without being flooded, I'm getting roughly 50 PAR at substrate level (via DIY PAR Meter). So without any adjustments, this will probably be a medium light tank. We can always squeeze a couple more LEDs in or add optics to focus the light more (a lot of light is bleeding in various areas). Plus the potentiometer should be coming in the mail any day, so adjustments can be made on the fly also.

Excited about this 3rd round with this tank!

I haven't found any. It seems to me, as long as the water is flowing, things should be good.

bitFUUL So I grew out a bunch of Blyxa in this tank and decided to go with mixed plants again. My next challenge is submersed Glosso, I've only grown it emersed so far. Here are some dirty pics after the replanting.





Let's hope for a carpet!

bitFUUL I'm using a lazy version of pps pro. Meaning, I just add macros/micros by pouring an unmeasurable amount into the tank each morning. Who knows if I'm over or under dosing, but it seems to be working fine.

Islandx Tank looks great! What type of fert schedule are you doing?
