vvDO Nice growth, and your hair grass seems to be just the right height to be visible yet not looking overgrown.

freph HC looking quite healthy. Probably not a necessary comment, but make sure you're remineralizing that RO water well. Any plans of dosing micros soon?

CryptKeeper54 Trimmed last week. Growth is moderate. I'm happy with the look so far. Been dosing K+ 2x/wk. Switching from tap to RO water purchased from my local grocery store. Gonna do water 50% water change once per week. Just want to see if it makes things better. I have no idea what my tap water parameters were but I like the idea of RO water. I just do.

Well, to be more specific, K2SO4 - potassium sulfate.

CryptKeeper54 Mini update: seeing is believing! I used to scrub my rocks every other day to get rid of the unsightly brown algae. Added an oto and 2 red cherry shrimp and my algae growth on the rocks are near none existent. Adding dry K+ daily for now and will adjust fert regimen when needed. I think I'll be "mowing the lawn" soon. CO2 is temporarily placed there cause I thought it disperesed better. Only phone pic today:

Update 10/22/12

I was cleaning my tanks tonight and felt in the mood to take pictures. HC is doing okay. I just hope it strarts hugging the ground more and soon. Had to brush off some brown algae off my rocks with a toothbrush. I love this tank. Even though this is an older model ADA Mini M, I love having it. The ADA Solar Mini is so classy looking. Can't believe I didn't get one of these earlier in life......lol.

The first pic shows off my three tanks. I broke down my other two eheims to make way for these bad boys. My middle tank, my Eheim Aquastyle 6, has become a temporary nursery for the time being.









Tried to get different angles. No one ever accused me of being a good photographer....lol.

Thanks. No real reason for the HOB vs canister. I just liked the simplicity of it. The diffuser is very nice. I got all my CO2 and fertz from GLA.

Thanks. I kept debating on adding two more, smaller rocks on the left.... in the end, I liked the look of this layout. Ryuoh stones are cool looking.

CryptKeeper54 Just flooded the tank. Got bored of waiting..... hope I don't regret it. Will post better pics ASAP. Flooded my schuber-wright as well but still putting on the final touches.

Also, I have to say, I am very impressed with the design of the Fluval C2 filter. I think this HOB is perfect for this tank.







These rocks are just beautiful. I'm such a planted tank geek.

I'm guessing you're right. I don't think I was being scammed or anything.
