It's been a couple of weeks since I have posted so I wanted to give an update of my tank. I did my weekly maintenance yesterday and so I have some before and after pictures of the trimming.

Changes:
Switched from PPS-PRO dosing to EI. There is really no reason other than I have never tried it and I want to see if there are any noticeable changes. My weekly maintenance will remain the same with a weekly 50% water change.
Reduced my blue lights from 100% to 5% as I have read that it can induce algae to grow. We will see if it has any noticeable effects.
Added a new Dorityi who is already showing some good colors.

My LFS recommended an Aqualog poster that has pictures and descriptions of 64 rainbow fish species. I purchased this from Amazon and I highly recommend it for anyone who keeps a variety of rainbow fish (pic included below).

See below for the before and after FTSs as well as some bow pics.
