I'd say that things aren't growing as quickly, but it's not by much. My dwarf sag took a hit from the ich treatment, my quarantine tank was being used when I got the cichlids. It's still kind of yellow but it will grow new leaves.
I don't miss the old method, it served its purpose to grow out the plants, but I've actually lowered the light levels in my other tank and stopped using CO2 in it as well. The plants don't grow as quickly so they are more manageable. I have a zoo and several tanks, I don't like having to trim plants every week.

Interesting. So, perhaps when I get my planted tank started I should go with the DIY Co2 method until my plants grow out and then slowly back off with the light and and Co2? What do you think? I really would like to have it grow in quickly so I can get some Discus before next winter. But, I don't want to continue with it growing too fast so I can leave my Discus alone as much as possible once they are in their tank.
Thanks!

Thanks for the encouragment I think I will do a better job with the Discus tank than the river tank. I want both to be great, but how to pull it off with loads of water movement, I have no idea how it's gonna turn out.

Once I get my equipment I will start a build thread like you did. I would love it if you stepped in on the thread when ever you see something that IYO is not a good idea.

Beautiful tank. Definitely beats a lot of the high tech tanks out there.

Your rams are gorgeous! I want a pair.

Very inspirational tank. Looks so much like a forest that I almost want to walk into it.
