which are your co2 and lighting periods?

This are my timers setup, what do you think? And which are your?

10 hrs 10am to 20pm: 4 x 36 w pll
6 hrs 12am to 18pm: 2 x 150 w hqi
6 hrs 11am to 17pm: 2bpp presurized co2 with inline atomizer

In my experience i have good result with this timer setup. The idea is to give some reference to someone who wants to build an aquarium like ours.

This is mine 64g tank.

That tank looks good.

Dish the long strand plant though (ruins the scape )

My Co2 is DIY and my lighting is Dayllight

And I'm praying for it's survival

Nacho, i would up the CO2 mate. I run the lighting in my sig for 10 hours with ramp up and ramp down (dimming and colour variation) with around 4 - 5bpm CO2. Epic growth.
