Agree with everyone here. Just hand turn the valve at the top of the co2 cylinder to closed, then remove your regulator with a crescent wrench. The detaching will release a hiss of a small amount of...

Interesting stone arrangement where two large stones are competing for the focal point and overlapping. Nice looking scape so far.

Nice looking tank indeed. I like seeing 125g journals. Can you share what co2 diffusion method you're using (via a reactor, inline diffuser etc)?

The par meter doesn't require a subscription, but the ammonia etc tests do. Someone on here did a comparison of the seneye with a regular par meter and apparently it's pretty accurate.

I've got marselia crenata and I've become a big fan of it over glosso, HC and other carpet plants. What species is that; hirsuta, crenata or minuta?

This whole nutrient uptake/toxicity discussion could be all in vain if you missed the OP's initial post where he mentions he's using DIY co2 on a 155g tank.

Priming mechanisms are useless, in fact they present a potential failure point in your canister, which makes the eheim classic an all-time favorite since it has no such mechanism. They tend to last a...

Hydro testing of co2 cylinders in Canada, and I think the US too, is mandatory every 5 years unless it has a star. From the stamp date on your tank it looks like the last fill was November 2012....

It's a 125g tank 22" deep, and planning on dimming the fixtures to about 50% or less at least to begin, and planning on two for better coverage. One fixture alone at 90 is a bit too narrow.

Yeah I definitely wouldn't be unhappy with those results - that's a great looking tank btw. I was planning on getting a dutch XB with a 10k XB, or two dutch XB, but I keep flip flopping.
