Minor update, cleaning pipes today and possibly rearranging hardscape. HC grew in so much I had to do a major trim that was fun ugh...
Pics on the way after change.
Just a few shots from today's feeding

That HC looks great! I'm waiting to get some in myself. I just love the look, not sure how I'll feel when I need to start mowing.

Mott your HC growth is just amazing. I was wondering, do you keep the CO2 running 24/7? How long is your light exposure? How many PPM CO2 at? I am having a hard time growing my CO2. Thanks!

Amazing scape btw, just beautiful

Thanks so much guy's, a update is due this weekend.

The first few weeks I had co2 24/7 with a high bubble rate possibly 4-5 bps while the AS was settling and leeching out the ammonia, mind you I did not do crazy water changes like many do with new AS, just one WC a week.

I have been running my photo period at 11 hours but I'm going to cut it back now because the stones started growing BBA hence the big cleaning I just did.
I think it may be due to the fact that I had blasted the Co2 in the beginning but had to cut it back once the shrimp went in.
I'm also experiencing some GDA but not too worried about that.

I find HC will do best with high light, Co2 and ADA AS as a substrate, you don't even have to dose that much.
