In my experience you will need a stronger light, during the dsm if you place it outside you may get some good growth but Ive never had good luck with a tank receiving light through window. good luck with your tank.

Hi! your tank really impressed me and now I'm starting something similar!
I plan on keeping the HC growing for a while under direct sunlight, won't flood the tank until I have an almost-complete carpet.
I'm worried about the ferts, what is your experience on dosing before and after flooding? I'm currently using only API Root tabs but they don't seem to have much in the line of micros.
How did the EI method worked for you?

It appears that you've updated your lighting, what are you currently using? I have the Fluval V and am not thrilled with the lighting.

Its been a while. My tank is now officially infested with red cherry shrimp. Not only that but my females are berried again. I need to figure something to do with all these shrimp besides make shrimp scampi. Growth is great here is a picture.

A 2 week update everything is growing like crazy did my first big trim on this tank. Here are the before and after pictures. Please excuse the trimmed photo as I had just added a water clarifier.

|jhwku||3 out of the 4 females are berried as of this afternoon with the 4th looking to be so as well. Soon I will have an army.|

Have 4 Red cherries saddled but still none that are berried yet. Have been like this for about 2 weeks. One of the females I received berried laid its eggs and now the shrimp are gaining confidence and showing themselves around the tank regularly. I still need to figure out how to efficiently dose this tank with the EI method, because I am starting to grow a bit of algae.

Had to replace an OTO that had White Fungus today. Also started to see baby shrimp all around the tank. The top of my rocks seem to be growing quite a bit of algae even though I have turned my light cycle down. Here are some pictures
