Good job starting up with a lot of plant matter, it'll really help with algae problems.

5/2 update:

It's been 3 weeks since I started the tank. I used ~10 gallons (every water change) of good tank water from my 20 gallon to help start the cycle the first week. All the plants melted except for the the ferns and swords. The HC and moss have been yellow since than... But I see new growth coming back. The Rotalas, Ludwigia and Limnophila hippuroides completely die off..

I added ~15 shrimp and 10 Neons (1st week), 15 white clouds and 10 zerbas (3rd week) to cycle the tank.

Had a nitrite spike and have been doing daily water change to control that.

6/7 update -

HC carpet all died. The pleco kept uprooting them. Also its due to the T8 (50W) I had for the longest time. I finally was able to upgrade to LEDs a few weeks ago. So the plants are now slowly taking off. The Java Moss is taking forever to grow.

I added a few Discus in the tank and have been fighting some clamped fins and internal parasites with the fish.

They're going a lot better now.

Here's an updated video.

Default 8/17 update!

8/17 -

Hey guys, it's been 2.5 months since the last post. I figured its time for an update. The tank definitely changed since April.

-Trying to grow HC again, but having a hard time because the fish keeps uprooting them.
-The xmas moss is taking its sweet time growing in. :/
-Battling with a few algae, green hair and this green ball (kind of looks like a moss ball)
-The fish are doing great!

Enjoy.

I know! The Razor Max LED lights are super nice. And it does have a sunrise/set option.

But I still really like the sleek design of the Aquaticlife LED. If they had them in 8k range, I would've gotten that.
