Beautiful tank. I'm glad to see you raised your lights, not only does it give it better coverage but more importantly it's not blocking the bottoms of your beautiful piece of artwork.

Yes I am a huge Tool fan. I was hooked after the first time I saw them live back in 1993. Did you get to see them this last year when they made it back down under? That 70 gal is a really nice looking tank also.

What a great tank!!! Excellent work, and the wood work in the other thread I saw today was amazing as well.

Do you happen to know how much PAR you are getting at tank bottom?
What CO2 level are you trying to maintain? Do you shoot for 30ppm? Or just put a little in for a plant boost?

Thank you!
Whiskey

hey whiskey, im not to sure on what par or co2 levels I have, I should really invest in a par meter and measure my ph & kh to find out what co2 levels I have, Im just going of a dupla drop checker and its solid green. how do you find the co2 ppms?

There are a couple of ways, One is to measure KH and PH then use a CO2 chart like here:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=23531

There is some argument about the accuracy of this though, especially in tanks with little or no water changes because acids unrelated to CO2 will build up and throw off the calculation.

A more accurate way it to precisely measure PH of the water in the tank, then put it in a cup overnight to off gas all the CO2 and measure again, the overnight sample will have about 2-4 PPM then use the chart at that KH level, and scoot over to where you were with the first measurement.

HTH,
Whiskey

Discus would look great in that tank. I have 12 myself in a 220g.
