|tnyr5||Yeah, I just can't decide between a black background or the sky-type backgrounds Mr. Amano uses.|

But as James 1542 said a while ago... put a background on your tank.... a darkish color.... it'll make everything look that much better !

Growth shot nov 20
Today, taken just before trimming [IMG][/IMG] To someone who is used to corals that grow in inches per year, this is astounding lol.

|tnyr5||As promised lol. I did some major trimming of the stem plants about a week ago. I also had a bit of an accident (overdosed H2O2 and nearly killed everything), but the plants seem to have bounced back. The new shoots of [I]Rotala[I] don't seem to want to grow upright though lol.|

|tnyr5||Hey guys, sorry I've been aloof! This is a busy time of year for singers. I'll post some new pics as soon as I get home on Monday.|

|james1542||Very nice looking tank, I think the only suggestion left to make is throw a back ground on there!|

Trust me - EI is a cake walk compared to dosing in a reef tank!
Most folks who use pressurized CO2 do so with a solenoid and a timer. CO2 typically on 30-45 min prior to lights on so there's a good concentration in the water column to be used by the time plants start getting all the light. And off about 30-45 min (these times are just an estimate, don't hold me to that) before lights off so there's no over abundance of CO2 in the water after lights out. That really helps prevent gassing fish over night.
For those who run CO2 24/7, many use an air stone at night to help gas things off and prevent harming critters.

|tnyr5||Thanks for the tips! I'll keep that in mind. EI dosing doesn't seem too tough, but I'm curious if you keep the co2 bubbling day and night with that system. It didn't specify, at least not in the article I read.|
