@lpsouth1978 congrats on the 230! Start taking swimming lessons. And a 3-step stool will come in handy.

Using a 5-year old Up Aqua in line atomizer hooked to outflow of an Eheim 2075 at 100% flow:

Tap pH 7.2
48-hour de-gassed pH 7.1
At co2 off pH 5.5

7.1 - 5.5 = 1.6 pH drop.

Rather surprising but the tank also has a fair number of transitioning plants with some melt and new driftwood. Adjusted co2 down and test again tomorrow. Personally, I want to bottom out at around 6.2. I feel that I will be more lifestock limited then by a specific diffusion method. If and when I switch over to sump, the out-gassing is expected to be higher.

In my 60P with in tank diffuser, the pH drop is 7.1 - 6.7 = 0.4 pH drop, lifestock limited @ the current surface agitation and no surface film.

I like #2 -- shows off the unusual depth of the tank.

Why not start one now? That is one of the sexiest tanks available IMO (I am partial to large rimless tanks). It will give us something to look forward to. You can post up your shopping list and get some feedback on the vision you have for your tank. We can share in your excitement, anticipation, and progress. Additionally, it will give you motivation to keep the ball rolling.

I may come across as a know-it-all. In reality, I have no idea.

A bit on AI Primes, I have them set to 1 hr rump up and down, with 7 hours in between. I plan on bumping the settings up once I feel the tank can take it. The current color settings are:



Some of my 57 Colombian tetras: (on the flip side, I used to have 10 Green Flame tetras until I moved the Angel in. They used to school with Colombians but now I rarely see 2 at a time as they are either hiding or became food. A bummer in either case.)



Water change time:

Would like to see where this has gone over the past several months.
