I've been warned by other members with the 18" ray2 on its intensity for the shallowness of my tank. I've never ran into algae problems, just your typical green spot on the glass. I get tons of pearling and only need my CO2 on for aprx. 3-4 hours to make a yellow color on my drop checker.
Thanks! i'll have to trim the DHG down whenever I find time.. >_<

nice! Somehow I feel the tank would look even better without any plants in the middle (where Downoi is?)
How did u know too much PAR? Were u getting algae?
Anyway keep up the good work and is that coral moss on the right?

Day 44 | Long update..
So, I've been slacking on keeping up this journal for my sake.
Observation: Too much PAR = Add Plant Clouds (Frogbit).
No algae, Blyxa growing crazy, harigrass growing 'hairy' lol (gotta trim it asap), Downoi is growing tall(?), S. Repens 049 growing slowly....
New: Glass Lily pipes came in, outflow came in cracked... refunded. Still got inflow
Fauna: Blue Eye Gertrude Rainbows added.
I cant take pics to save my moss.. >__<
Why So Tall?
Yay, my favorite fish!

Day 21 - Lamp Eye Killifish Added
Finally added some fish in.
Got back from my trip and only growth I noticed was from Blyxa and DHG. Looks like Downoi melted some older leaves and the newer leaves are looking brighter lime green. Seems like the high light may be the cause of it.
Again, I need to find a hanging kit to lower the amount of PAR. For now, hoping that the added frog bit & salvinia will help shade out some of the light for now..
CO2 is still being blasted, keeping the drop checker at yellow, light is being kept at 5 hours a day.
Lily Pipes should be in anytime now, cant wait for it!
The additional lamp eye's are looking good 6 inside for now. Very green tank.
thanks for viewing!

|puopg||Did you get inspiration from Texas Cichlid's ADA? Looks so similar haha!|

Thanks for the update and take care!

Looking good! the brighter the light, the more dense the s.repens will grow. i found this to be the case in one of two tanks. In the low tech medium tank, the stems were longer inbetween the leaves.
See ya when you get back!

I will be gone for 1 week, headed to Hawaii to attend my grandpas funeral. Hope that the timers hold up to their job *fingers crossed*
Lily Pipes, from far away China, should hopefully be in by the time I get back.
All I observe is plants are finally becoming established and throwing down roots.
Thanks for viewing and god bless!

YESS, Im patiently waiting for my Lily Pipes to come in from Asia..
1 month, well more like 2 weeks now.
Heres the identical model thats slowly making its way to the US.
I'll stick with my Lamp Eye Kilis since they were so difficult to acquire..
