    You and I are on the same mission! Had mine up for a year, but not a lot of success. Many things went awry. Any interested in communicating by phone to share ideas?

    Present Setup:
    210g tank (72x25x30)
    Lighting: DIY 48x 3w LED lighting (25% blue, 25% red, 50% white). It's been a failure, tearing it out next weekend.
    Circulation: Maxspect Gyre XF150
    UV: Vecton-6 V2 600
    Soil: ADA AS
    Filtration: Air-tight sump with multiple layers of Poret foam, bio-ball trickle chamber, and polyfill polisher.
    CO2: dissolved via a skimmer pump and two consecutive canister reaction chambers. Controlled by pH controller (Apex).
    Fertilization: Nilocg Micro/Macro dry mix. 100ml of each, alternating days, no breaks.
    Water source: Well water (TDS 330 unfiltered) through a carbon block and 1 micron filter.
    Water changes: Modified continuous drip system: 40g of freshwater added to system every night with a sump overflow draining excess water.

    Let me know if you're interested,
