Most recent tank pics.

I just bought some more plants today that are fast growing so I can try and work my way through some of the nutrients. I've also added a 20 lb. CO2 automated injection kit which I just perfected today. Also I purchased some drift wood as well.

Here's the most recent pic of my tank. While I was doing my weekly water change I found a baby guppie in my canister filter's water after I dumped it out into a bucket. So I netted him and made him that little home in the upper right hand corner. I want him to be a male because I only have one other guppy that is a female. Anyways here's my tank... I plan to add lots more plants and get the thing growin like there is no tomorrow!


My CO2 solution. This diffuser wasn't working good enough(could only keep the ph at 7.3) for my large tank so instead of buying the T-line needed to inject the CO2 right into my canister filter I just went with the poormans option. Hey it works just as well!

Cute little guppy baby home. It's amazing what we go through to safe one individual life, while thousands of feeder guppies are dying their slow deaths in stores.

Nice start, but I would add more plants (much more plants), and perhaps some sort of background.

Let us know how the CO2 works out for you. My XP's end up airlocking if I bubble CO2 into the outlet, but that is because water is saturated with oxygen from (too) many plants.

mine air locks too if I try to restart it when the spray bar is under water. I plan on adding lots more plants I just need to get used to dosing my dry ferts and what not. Plus my phosphates are off the chart right now so I am waiting for that to come down before I load with lots more plants.
