HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Finally decided to get off my tush and rinse out the substrate.
Here's what it looks like with substrate:
The hardwater marks are starting to resurface on the bad places. Go figure it starts that up AFTER I start putting in the substrate.
With any luck, I'll have a good chunk of the plants tomorrow. My package is also in Michigan, but with the New Year, I don't know exactly *when* it will get to my place. I figure I can plant the tank and use the powerhead to create water movement/co2 diffusement.
