From 29 To 45Gal bow!

Having been on the forum for a while, and learning alot with the old 29gal I had, I thought I would post the upgraded tank!

Have gone to EI for ferts,

nitrates I try to keep at 20 or so
phosphate around 2ppm
use csm-b mix at 12g/1ltr water with a bit of extra Iron
GH 13
KH 7
Have flourite black sand as bottom layer, tropica soil and capped with black beauty blasting sand
