SMS Red Pictures

Juat planted my 2nd tank on Friday using SMS Red. I've seen a lot of questions about the red (not very red) so thought I would post a couple of photos trying to highlight the SMS. 55 Gallon, 4x65 CF, Rena XP3, DIY CO2 with rio aquapump and reactor.

I'm very happy with the reactor. Have the same setup on both of my 55's. I'm using a 1 gallon juice jug with sugar, yeast and baking soda. Have two bottles set up for each aquarium so I can pull the pull the tube from 1 if the CO2 gets too much. Quite often I find one is plenty. I have a bubble counter and drop checker. At some point I would like to switch over to a bottle and regulator but it isn't in the buget at this time. For now what I am doing appears to work well, just a lot more involvement on my part.

Nice. I like the red. That's what came with my tank when I bought it.
