First of all, beautiful tank. And an exceptionally nice stand as well. Interesting the changes over the years. Have been following along and enjoying seeing the progress on the reboot.

And yes, the TrueLumen is quite a bit more pink.

I'm curious, why t5 over led? I'm getting back in after 7 years and when I left the hobby LED was the new hotness, though expensive. I had t5 back then but thought for sure LED would have taken over by now

I think I remember reading that somewhere as well. I may have to try that and see if I can get a couple of them.

Thanks. Your tank is very nice as well. I really love the rainbows.

Yes this tank has went through many changes throughout the years, some better than others.

I have never tried a led fixture myself but have seen several tanks with them and to me the colors you get with t5's is hard to get using led's even though they are far more advanced than they were just a couple of years ago. Maybe sometime in the future I will give them a try but for now I'm happy with my t5's.

I had a hair algae issue that I'm trying to get under control. The P. stellatus was a big mass of algae intermixed with the stems that covered the entire surface of the tank as I was not keeping up with maintenance on the tank since changing some things. I also got a nasty fungus that killed all of my serpae tetras and left all but 3 of the brilliant rasboras with deformed mouths. All of this happened after switching my filter to the new setup and removing my uv sterilizer that I couldn't find room for under the stand. This time of year is hard to find the time needed to keep up on the tank with busy kids, outdoor plants and the pond. I'm debating on some new fish but I'm not yet decided on what I want yet. Picture today after removing a cantaloupe size ball of algae and trimming the Pogostemon way down.

Funny thing about the crypts is I didn't even plant them when I redid this tank. I took all my crypts out from my last tank but apparently there was some roots left when I tore them out and all of these have came up from that. I'm actually going to remove most of them. They are mostly green gecko and the one in the middle that is really tall put up a spathe today.

I'm looking for some L. brevipes and Limnophilia gigantea. I think I have found some of the Limnophilia but I'm still searching for some brevipes. The plant behind the crypts is actually Ammania gracillis. I have kept both the Limnophilia gigantea and brevipes in the past and really like both of them. I was wanting a fine leaved light green plant to put next to the Ammania. I plan on moving some things around after I get the plants I'm looking for. I will remove some of the crypts at that time.

Wow that's pretty cool considering the Crypts are pretty massive now.

I found some L. gigantea and L. brevipes thanks to Dempsey and a member of another forum. Thanks again. I should be getting them in the next couple of days. I plan to move a few things around when I get the new plants. Next thing will be getting some buce to put on the right side of the tank where the big cluster of wood is. I have been trying to decide which kind to try as this will be my first time using buce. I think I have it narrowed down to Catherine variety and mini velvet.
