Wow! I knew at the start of this thread that you were going to have jungle on your hands with how bright and powerful those LED's are. Such colors and lushness. The side shot really emphasizes the amount of plant mass you've got. Quite impressive.

I'm also battling BBA in a fully developed tank, tell me, did you have to manually remove some or did you manage to make it recede with increased/stable c02, nutrient levels, etc?

I hit the tank hard with gluteraldehyde for 2 weeks, scrubbed it off the wood, stopped messing with my kh and let it settle down to about 2 degrees, increased my iron and ca/mg dosing. The algae has been going away on its own after that.

Amazing. How much time during the week do you spend on scaping?

Great video!

Can you recommend a video editing program for a beginner? I have a canon 600d dsrl. Thanks.

I've just been whipping these up with Microsoft movie maker. It's free and has some decent options but it's pretty basic. Decent place to begin but there is lots of better software out there

Thanks, I've have a go using Movie Maker. My laptop is old and struggles with even basic editing, but I got it done. Somewhere along the line I lost HD, so I have to work that out now.

Well some big news, we just bought a house! This aquarium has to be dismantled and set up again in a month.

The wife gave me the go ahead to replace it with a 7 x 2 X2 foot tank though. So over the coming months this tank is getting a huge upgrade

Congrats on purchasing a home! Will your current LED rig be used in this next setup?

Congrats on becoming a home owner now. Cant wait to see this new beast your going to get to set up. Sad to see this one go, but see great things evolving after the move I'm sure.

Wow is all i can say. i feel so unintelligent reading some of these SUPER high tech journals. i have NO idea where to even start with this kind of stuff. it almost feels like something you would have to go to school and learn how to do some of this stuff!

Nice to see a fellow Brittish Columbian on the forum! i Live in Kamloops, but i am actually moving to Nanaimo as soon as i can find a house i like enough to purchase! thanks for mentioning where you got your Tank, hopefully i can remember when i move to the Island and get them to build my dream tank, 250-300 gallons.

i am rarely blown away, but you have done it. i will never understand how some people are so good at the electrical and plumming in this hobby, ive only been in the hobby a year, maybe its something you pick up as you go along! one day i would love to have such an amazing tank, well done.
