Day 6 Update
So I am back to my tank after a 4 day absence - I left right after starting the tank. I will be moving this tank down to my main residence after my 4 days of work so it can get a little more attention.
- Received my Finnex lamp in the mail and got it installed.
-Decided I will be moving the tank (good luck...)
-Gathered all my CO2 equipment for when I fill it eventually.
-Dug up all my old dry ferts from GLA.

TBH I don't really see any major changes in height, spread, or color of the HC. I think it might look a little "plumper" but maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me.
The moisture level in the tank seemed to stay good with 4 days gone - I may have over misted before I left because I just airline drained about 4oz of water that was over the substrate level.
Light installed and wrapped up again

Couple questions if anyone sees this:
For fertilizers I am debating going with Rootmedic one-step or possibly making solutions of my existing ferts since dry dosing this tank will be a pain - even with my tiny spoons. Thoughts?
Should I dose excel if I see algae? None yet but I am thinking that I left the water too high and I may get some.
