Thanks! It took a while to get it going but once it was established it grew like a weed!

I am bias but I love the inland East Bay (east of the Caldecott Tunnel). I feel you on rent in SF, or Cali in general. That said, there are more than a few enthusiasts around the area.

Thanks! I'm not going to do the exact same layout but I do want to do another Unzan layout. I'm thinking a DHG desert of sorts with the Unzan stone as the main focus as the next layout. Not quite sure how to use the pockets to their full potential yet but I'll figure that out when I'm ready to start up again.

Yes but they are all iPhone pictures so they are probably not that great I just got my hands on a DSLR hope to have some better shots soon.

davidj12 Good news! It's all but clear now.



Things I think I did to fix it.

Last sunday I did two HUGE water changes in a row.

I kept the light off for 3 days and then on the 4th and 5th day I had it on for 3hrs. Right now I'm back up to the normal photo period.

I moved the UV sterilizer from the left side of the tank (where the water flow was very fast) to the middle of the tank where the flow is quite a bit less.

No ferts at all for the last week.

I'm going to do a WC tomorrow and start dosing light ferts.

Speaking of atomic inline diffusors, mine sucks. It worked for a few months until it began to leak. The c02 would rather seep out of the cracks in the plastic than diffuse through the ceramic portion of the unit. =\

Maybe I will try out the ista max mix reactor.
I've had the UV running for a few days now and it does not seem to be making a difference at all....

The Max Mix is awesome and cheap too!

Thanks! I just wish I could see it better

I like the pollen diffusers but I really wanted to keep as much out of the tank as I possibly can. Also when I had an in tank diffuser it was a pain to keep clean.
