Awesome tank. A great example of properly planning your landscape (unlike my mess ). Can't wait to watch its maturity.

Well Well Well....

My how time flies as you get a little older. Since my last update, I've changed jobs, my wife and I have had ANOTHER baby, and this tank has continued to putter along. It feels like it's only been a few months since my last update...but it's been 2 years.n

Before I get into the updates, a few pictures of where we are tonight (didn't bust out the diatom filter, so patience please

Now for some discussion. If you read my last update, you know I wasn't happy with the plumbing. Things just didn't work right, so I turned off co2 and auto dosing and just let it all go. Then I had a few bad experiences with my Eheim 2028s (loved those things for a long time, but they have one part that breaks repeatedly and easily, at $27 + shipping a pop each time), so I changed up my filters to some Eheim 2217s. I've fallen in love with these Eheim Classics over the last few years (put one on my 60-P years ago and have loved it). I have 2 Eheim 2217s running and love.

I also decided to add one of those co2 atomizers (from the auction site) inline before one of the eheims.

I also redid the organization in my stand and installed a light. If you have a big tank and don't have a light in your, scratch that....if you dont' have a light in your stand, add one (I have one in my 60-P and don't know what I'd do with out it).

The installed light

And finally some shots of a few of the inhabitants.
