Looks very nice with a really nice collection of plants. Looks like you are very dedicated to do so much work DIY.

Hope you win the system to take a little bit of stress out of that beauty.

I would really recomend going with at least 25% treated tap water. Probably 50% would be better. While micro-nutrients add many things that plants would need, I think most of them are based on the...

Don't know if this is the case with everyone, but I have no luck breading them at that low of a PH. Mine breed like crazy in the 7.2 to 7.6 range.

Don't think I would do the tied together one. Half the reason for the seperator is to protect from getting mix pumped into the tank if the bottle tipped over. Doesn't help if they both tip over at...
