How "open" do you have the high pressure valve? If you're just cracking it, you may not have enough pressure to push the gas through your diffuser.

When you say you used root tabs for the two plants you have, Anubias and Java Fern, it makes me wonder how you planted them. Neither one of these plants should have their "roots" stuck into the...

Very nice hitman. I added a circulation pump like you did as well when I had BGA issues; that seemed to help get rid of it.

Horse faces sift sand for food, so if you have small substrate it will be like a conveyor belt of shrimp snacks. I'd think the dojos would make quick work of them at any rate.
