I cut that low for the first trim. Then I left the two or more branches reach up about halfway in the tank. Then I'll trim off another inch or two from that point to get even bushier.

You had said fit the description of excess nutrients, not EI.

How much flow are you getting from the new pump? I use my tank for a betta, think that may be a bit much, but still curious.

Thanks for clarifying! The tubing length makes sense. I've had great experiences with the mist from the inline, but if there was a better option I'd try it. :laugh2:

For me, flow was the toughest thing to dial in. Lack of flow will cause CO2 issues in your tank in low flow areas. Once I got my flow dialed in things started working better in the tank as a whole....

Love the hygro on the wood! It stays smaller growing on the wood right? Do you plan to let it complete cover the wood? I think that would look awesome.

Can't wait to see an updated photo.

Last update until this weekend. A bunch of plants have really been struggling, and I suspect it's my substrate at this point. I got Osmocote happy a while back and I think it's just toxic now.

Agreed, lots of on/off, but I'm told it's not a huge deal.

I ran it as a pH controller before, but I feel like the times where it's off and there isn't a constant stream of CO2 isn't good, so I...

You'll love it! From my use of them, the single Halo will work fine for that size tank. I'd use the 110 degree lense.

The 2213 is definitely too small even with a power head. I'd swap it for the 2217. Remove the carbon too. It's going to remove your ferts.

As for flow, you want a nice laminar pattern. Easiest...

I don't think it's a break in period so much as the need to let it equalize after starting. Basically, it needs to build up 30-40psi before it will work. So when you start it and see 4bps for...
