I've put up the latest pics. Just over a month after setting up and I'm pretty amazed with the growth i've had in such a short amount of time. Now just to trim and keep it under control!
With regards to what I've setup here,
-I built a light hood with 4 T8 daylight bulbs, 15w each. On 12 hours a day.
-An eheim 2213 filter
-DIY CO2 using a bottle of jello/sugar mix with 1/3 tsp champaine yeast.
-I dose almost daily with a basic PMDD mix, excel, fluorish iron, fleet phosphate drops, regular fluorish (twice a week).
-1/2 a tank water change every weekend
And that's basically it. I've played around with different dosages and the algae seems to be in check. I'm still trying out different ratios to see how it affects algae growth, there seems to be a lot of room for adjustments.
