excel on a 90? you got more money than i do. excel isnt a fert, its an sub for your C02 that you already have. even though i swear by excel on small tanks i have to say sub the excell for a seachem flourish. Excel wont stop your plants from turning yellow. all that aside dont be discouraged and keep going. i would love to see pictures of you tank as it grows in!

ROTFL. Maybe the glosso will cover some of it up?

Besides the "ahem" discussion above, I say ADD MORE ROCKS. Not enough at all.

was the fan rattling/making a lot of noise or did it just stop working? If the fan just stopped working the motor probably overheated and you should check the cooling fins and give them a good cleaning (this will also improve efficiency )
