Good eye, I did get the tank from Aquaforest actually. most of the plants came from there too. As for the wood, I yanked it out of a pond by my parents house in Minnesota and brought it on the plane back to S.F. with me (baggage screener: 'what's in this box sir?' me: "sticks." him: "what?" me: "sticks."). I had soaked them for about a week prior to use in another tank, but they probably would have been good to go right away after a good scrubbing.

Just straight Aquasoil in this tank, no powersand. I used 3 and a half 9-liter bags of Aquasoil actually. I have the feeling things may be moved around in the tank after a while, and I've heard that's easier to do without using powersand. We'll see how it turns out I guess.

I also want to send a great big thanks out to this entire forum. I found you guys 6 months ago, and it didn't take long for me to realize planted aquaria are the way to go. This site really is a wealth of fantastic information, and this project wouldn't be half what it is without it. Thanks.

That's pretty funny. Did he want to know what for? I always imagine having to explain someone all the white powders and syringes in my tank stand. Officer, it is for autodosing! Huh??

Do you get fine bubble control from your needle valve? And I see you don't have a solenoid. Do you have to adjust your needle valve very other day?

Seems like a well thought out setup. I wish I could plan a tank setup like that. Love the MH light too, that's a dream of mine. Where did you get the e-ballast from?
I like the wood. However, i see this type of "stump" layout with a bunch of low growing grasses in my mind. It will be interesting when it grows out.

I think the regulator is actually off a welding tank or something - my father gave it to me and it seems to be working just fine. no solenoid, but 24/7 co2 injection doesn't seem to hurt my fish at all so I'm pretty happy with it so far. The needle valve does provide a good measure of control, and I hope to get a bubble counter for christams to keep better track of the flow. probably a Rhinox unit, and maybe a 2000 diffuser disk instead of the 5000.

Give me a PM when you want to get rid of your 5000. I have the same co2 setup but not runing so I don't know yet.
