Alright, welll..... bringing this back into the light again.
My 33g tank completely crashed, I tried to rebuild it about 3 times, it failed every time to rotting plants, mulm, and cyano. I tore it down and now I'm waiting for it to sell.
When I get some money for that I am going to purchase a CO2 system and *hopefully* find a stand for this tank and get it going. I am getting tired and sad seeing it sit in the corner empty for 6 months.
My HC has exploded and I haven't trimmed it and it is probably a good inch and a half up the tank.
I hope to scrape up enough money to have the tank on a real stand and filled by the end of this month. We will see.
