Thank you! I can't wait either.
My co2 is actually a DIY paintball tank with an azoo regulator and magnetic solenoid.

Looks great so far! Should grow in really nicely. The plants in the right corner should create a great dynamic once they get tall.

I don't see any pearling? Looks like normal CO2 being diffused to me?

Nice tank!
