I have AR-4x's. They're wonderful.

Based on your other components, I had a hunch it was either Klipsch Heresy/Cornwall or an AR2/4. Fantastic system. The cabinet looks to be in excellent shape for its age.

Thanks much. I actually refinished the cabinets when I restored my other components. It was quite a bit of work, but all in all it is a phenomenal system that I get to enjoy everyday. I love finding other stereo enthusiasts on these forums!

I decided since I've passed the one month mark I'll switch to every other week updates, as there's just not as much to update.
In the last couple weeks I've seen an algae outbreak, in the form of spirogyra and diatoms. Nothing to huge, but I would like to know whats causing it. Does anybody have any idea? Also is there anything I should be doing other than manual removal and excel dosings to combat it?
Also, it's been about 5-6 weeks since start up; should I be cleaning my filter out?
Thanks everybody!

Diatoms just run their course. You can introduce otos and amanos to deal with it. Spirogyra is manual removal and excel dosing, up to 2x max amount and make sure you have good oxygenation.

Eh, I clean it whenever I notice my flow drops or I'm bored. If not that then every month and a half or so.

Week Six Update

Alright so since my last update not much has changed. Plants have grown significantly, but so has algae..
Also, I cleaned off my diffuser for the first time, which made a world of difference. My Riccia is pearling like mad now. I really can't wait to see the end of diatoms and more importantly Spirogyra.







Pretty bad picture, but you can see how crazy the Riccia is. I'm trimming again tomorrow.

Your tank is looking really good! That's some nice growth on the hc. I've had a lot of algae issues too and have found amano shrimp a big help with the Spirogyra.

Thanks! I'll look into Amanos some more. I was thinking about getting one when I get some money. :/

They're pretty reasonably priced, around $3/ea. You can probably do a few more than one in your setup. They like having some friends around.
