I got rid of the GLA atomic diffuser and built a Cerges reactor. I also got my manzanita and scaped it. Its still a little bouyant but I jammed it into the substrate and should be good to go. I've planted a little more stauro and waiting for about 20 more stems in the mail this week. I'm shooting for a complete carpet eventually.
If I have some time this weekend, I'll snap some photos.
