I don't do anything to control it.. I don't use a buffer. My levels are as such..

prior to the photo cycle.. 6.8 to 7.0 and towards the end of the photo cycle after the co2 has been on for almost 7 hrs.. it is usually consistently 6.4

thanks Buck! I am learning this as I go.. Like I said.. this is my first planted tank.. and only my second tank. I set up my 29gal tank back in Jan of this year.. I instantly wanted to get a 75gal. I personally feel that a 75gal tank is the perfect size tank. but I do like the way a 125gal looks! lmao

For this being your first planted tank, it has come out fantastic. You pretty much did everything right from the beginning with regards to setting up a high tech tank. Most people struggle to achieve balance with a high tech tank, but it appears that either you have a natural knack for this, you did your research extensively, or you know all the right people.

Awesome tank....i'm in the same position you are and am slowly establishing my 75g. I'm going to post pics later this week...hopefully it will look ok. I was thinking about getting some angels but how are they acting with the tetras? How many fish are you planting to stock?

my 2 angles get along fine with my tetras.. they just hang out towards the front of the tank. I plan to have a few schools of tetras and a few show fish. and tons of plants.. obviously!

here are some updated pics.. alot of the plants are growing out.. I did remove the microsword and I have some HC on the way.. I am thinking of changing up the aquascape.. getting rid of the driftwood on the right and making a small rock wall towards the front with the area behind the rocks up higher. anyways..

here are the pics.





you can see some of the bba.. sorry it looks crappy with that!
