rrrrramos This tank has been without water since December it looks like. I just decided to let it do its thing, haven't had the time or extra money to pour into this lately, so I kinda just put it in "set & forget" mode. Lights are on for 12 hours a day, not misting it, haven't actually added a drop to it since I drained it after the filter fiasco. As you can see in the pics, I must have missed a few stems of HC when I pulled it all out way back when. The DHG isn't really doing anything, not growing but it's still alive. I'm sure if I was to fill this up it would grow. I also have a nice thick coat of BGA along the waterline. Not going to worry about that till I fill this up, which I doubt will be anytime soon. Here are some pictures of it now, not the best pictures, but it's hard to get a good one with everything that is on the glass!

Actually, while writing this went to just remove the intakes QD, pulled the canister out and the actual casing for the canister has a leak right at the very middle. Bought this used, guess I should have expected it to suck... Well this sucks...

rrrrramos Finally got around to getting the second light and got some E. belem frrom CL. Planted, dosing, just gotta get the 2213 hooked up on here and get some sort of Co2 bubbling into here again! But that's a post-Christmas thing it's starting to look like.
Anyways, some shots of the tank in its current state.

I found some tubing at Lowes that I ended up using, but that was for my 9mm outflow. I didn't find anything there that worked too well for the 13mm intake, there were some but I felt they wouldn't fit as well as the supplied green one did. I actually got rid of my 2211 and now have a 2213. But only one tube and no lillies :/

Not really too big a fan of Rift2Reef after the move, they were amazing when they were on 407, now that they are on 2499 they are way too much like a mainstream LFS now...

Grows too fast, used it already once in this tank, and I see it more fit for a larger tank. Love the plant, just not for this tank.
