excel on a 90? you got more money than i do. excel isnt a fert, its an sub for your C02 that you already have. even though i swear by excel on small tanks i have to say sub the excell for a seachem flourish. Excel wont stop your plants from turning yellow. all that aside dont be discouraged and keep going. i would love to see pictures of you tank as it grows in!

my water chiller fan broke


and i had to find a temp. fan . here it is .. its a little bit bigger that the chiller so it will be placed at the back blowing to the condensor.


and guess where i got it .. :icon_roll


the fan will be powered by a pc PSU i had laying around in my room.

about the part of more rocks .. any suggestion on where to put it ?

was the fan rattling/making a lot of noise or did it just stop working? If the fan just stopped working the motor probably overheated and you should check the cooling fins and give them a good cleaning (this will also improve efficiency :) )

oh, goodness.

i love cherry barbs so much. i had 4 of them in my 10g tank and they are such happy and inquisitive little fish. and so pretty when they're colored up.

your layout looks much less anatomically correct now. :) great rock placement. looking forward to seeing your plants grow in!
