Yes. I use fluvals 's 88 co2 rig, which is very nice for this setup. I don't use the diffuser, though. Feeding the tube right up against the inlet is sufficient.

I use dry ferts.. I always feel like I'm guessing too much, but the results are what they are.

I use a BRIGHT led from home depot. Before I started using it, growth sucked.

Wow! I like it! My moss grows like wisteria in my tank and I barely touch it. My boyfriends jealous because his plants don't grow in his 75 but mine grow like weeds!

Growth looks great! Which LED are you using from home depot and how many gallons is that tank?

the light is a 1900 (i think.. i'm on business travel and not able to look at it.) lumen 5watt single led. it's advertised as being analogous to a 90w flood.

the tank is a smidge under 2 gallons, i think.
