Sounds like somebody needs to get another tank.

Thanks man.

Yeah, even after turning off the filter the bubbles from cut stems/pearling is insane. Produces a nice effect with the bokeh that's for sure!

7 week update

Cleaned the front glass panel to take some pics with the iPhone for a change. Pogostemon will need a trim soon.. or should I just replant the tops? Debating on whether to try and pull up the whole plant with roots intact or just cut near bottom of the stem and leave all the roots in soil. I can see the root system from the side and it is pretty intense.

Filter hasn't been cleaned since setup and all glass+lily pipes will need a clean.

I always just trim the tops and let them plant regrow from the bottom, I think it gives it a more dense look since more tops come out

Love the color of the pogo contrasting with everything else!

Awesome, will also be my first time trying it. Really interested if I can notice a difference in my water clarity but after hearing about it for so long and multiple professionals swearing by it I had to try it.

Also got some other products that we're getting hyped up by Jeff Senske and Luis Navarro, both aquascaping experts.

Seachem Pristine
Flourish Advance

Conversation about the two products starts at 15 min but the whole talk contains an abundance of knowledge, enjoy.

Thanks for that link! Really good talk for anyone interested. Have to say I cringed at 48:35 and made me realize again why they even made the video. Just have to keep in mind they both have a relationship to certain brands. At least you can still tell what products they truly believe in.

Yes definitely cringe-worthy. And yes both of those guys have a horse in the race. Not to say they aren't good products, but I think they need acting lessons if they're going to do this more often.

At this point it seems like anyone posting content to social media has 'a horse in the race' haha
