Also included is a full tank shot driftwood got thrown in, just waiting for it all to stop floating before i completely arrange it. i really like the two pieces on the right side
Wow this is a great set up. Saweeeeeeeeeet

faster plants growth i would imagine.. things get pretty thick fast so flow gets cutout between plant groups fast.
if they grow fast, less time for algae to propagate, and that means more trims to allows fresh water through

no but i realyl should

ludwigia senegalensis is my favorite plant so far
i dropped down to 100 par at the substrate and i have more algae now than i did when it was at 130 at the substrate so i may increase intensity and just let everything grow like crazy and trim every 3-4 days

How long did it take your aquasoil to stop leaching ammonia?

From what I can see with my test kit it hasn't gone beyond 4ppm... Just ready to add fish!!

I was running 3/4" PVC and could not run my return completely open without problems. The 1" that I switched to is able to flow properly. I'll stop derailing this now .

i can take the durso off and have a single standpipe and its almost dead silent. matter of fact i may just go cut me a piece to raise the water level and not use a durso now that u got me talking about it
