I know that feeling. Unemployment doesn't pay them all either. Lol. Oh well, I wish you good luck in the job hunt.

I hate that. I am making about half of what I made as a machine operator. It sucks. I hope you get back to work man. What did you do before you got laid off?

What kind of soil are you using now?

I was a mechanical engineer


organic potting soil, but it smells a little mature so a change is in order, will help with the melt, just glad it isn't melting anymore, time for recovery

Wow. Way above my intelligence level. Lol.

I used Scott's Premium Potting Soil. I think in these setups, it may be better to get the stuff with the plant food in it. I am getting a few yellow leaves but not many and everything is growing like weeds.

Upgrading filtration to two ocean clear 325 Powered by a quiet one 2200 which I'm assuming will be under 5-6 feet of head. I'm also in the middle of getting co2 up

the lotus was taken out I don't really have a pic of this tank currently that isnt on my phone, all the amazons were replaced with beautiful l aromatica 'broad leaf' and some ludwigia inclinata verticulata red. i also just purchased a 50g starfire reef ready cube that i'll be replacing this tank with, its 24"x24"x20" i'll be making a new journal when i set it up, everything is going to be ridiculously overdone, including lights and filtration, plants will be mostly reds with the starougynes moving over also, new rocks and manzanita
