I would do Staurogyne repens around the rock, then do something special for the red plant. Rotala Macrandra Mini Type IV would look terrific back there. Then Rotala Rotundifolia or something similar...

I think that is the cause then. How is your co2 diffused? Is the light and co2 on separate timers? If so, what is the time offset for when the co2 comes on and off as compared to the light?

To me it would not really be worth the minimal cost savings since it can be reused so many times. If you were to buy the 500ml of actual purigen for $25 that is about 30 cu inch worth. This actually...

While this image may have semi incorrect dates, the fact that my Petco just got multiple pallets in means a sell starting this weekend or next weekend.

I think that is a great choice. By the time you buy the drop checker, solution, etc. that is money wasted that could be spent on more plants or other aquarium needs.

The only time I had an ammonia spike from osmocote was due to not burying the tabs deep enough. If you burying them deep like you should, then you should not have an ammonia spike.
