It's impressive what you've done with a standard 10g, very nice. Seems like that HC is begging to be trimmed.

There are tons of quality metering valves, I'd recommend Swagelok or Ideal because I've used them. If you buy new they can be pricey and it can be tricky to find the correct models on e bay. Well...

I'm going for a different look by having some negative space on the right with an HC lawn. L. Aromatica is now kinda the centerpiece. I'm still working on separating the different species with tiers....

That's an awesome picture Chris, thanks for posting. Cabomba and Ludwigia of some sort? I can't usually find plants in pristine condition outside of aquariums. Water that clear seems even more rare.

Seems risky. Maybe I can try three bulbs on longer. I'll find out quickly if my CO2 is up to the challenge.

Limnophila aromatica is quickly becoming my favorite stem plant. I may ditch other species just to make more room for it. Haven't quite figured out how to get the bright red color out of it yet, but...

I'm liking the surface skimmer so far. At a medium flow setting it sprays a ton of micro bubbles. Then there's the crystal clear surface... so nice.

Thanks Chris. It started as wanting to protect my gear from kids but I ended up really liking the end result.

I think it's galvanized steel. Found it on a random isle at Lowes.

There's just a strand here and there. I found the best way to remove it is twisting it on a toothbrush. It's not growing on my HC anymore so it doesn't really bother me.

That second link got me wondering. It would be a bit clunky looking though. Maybe a smaller version that doesn't lock.

10lbs. Just enough height for that and a big regulator.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to move the Amanos tonight just to check that off the list of possible issues. I guess a long drip acclimation should help.

That site also says the preferred temp is 73.4 and below for RCS. I read there is some relationship between GH and temperature regarding molting frequency and strength of the exoskeleton, right?
