Ok so alot has changed since I last posted. I went a lil nuts on upgrades for the tank. Gonna be poor for awhile. I upgraded the filter to an Eheim pro 2028, plumbed in diy co2 reactor, and bought an eletronic c02 regulator and bottle. Currently, I have 4 x39 watts t5 tho bulbs 2 6400k, 2 10000k, I stagged the bulbs. Bank 1 is on a 9 hrs and Bank 2 is on for 6 hours. Prob too much light because I don't really dose just some potassium and micros weekly. I was having some bba issues so I turned the C02 up to 2 bubbles per sec. Had it like this for 3 weeks trying to adjust things a little. It will eventually be switched over to mineralized substrate. Just trying to get rid of the mts first.

I just did a major rescape a couple weeks ago those are the first couple of pics. The next couple are from a rescape on this past Sunday. I moved the sag, and potamogeton-gayi and small driftwood piece. I like how it turned. I just need a foreground prob will get hc. Hopefully it will stay like this for a lil while. The MTS really flatted scapes with all the moving around in the substrate.
