What lighting do you have? It already looks pretty bright to me!

Based on your plants a RAY II might xause some serious algae but then again your tank is pretty deep. It might just be right.I have 3 6500k t8's ATM
It just looks bright because I took the pic during a wc and the tank wasn't completely full
Im currently dosing 6ml of excell daily
I have not had to fertilize this tank yet(except root tabs on start up). I actually still have to do large wc to keep my N and P down......it's like the tank is even planted. The plants aren't dying but they aren't growing either.
Turns out I was wrong about the bamboo shrimp dying it's been a couple months since I put them in and I removed one dead one,and never saw another I assumed they all died. But one was out chillin on the rock today I can't believe it!!Sorry to hear that. They are reaaly cool. I once had several in my 30 gallon. They were constant feeders but then, months into it I noticed them picking the substrate. Tried adding suplements, but they kept picking so I returned them in fear they'd starve in my tank. My water is suuuuuper soft.
Do you have a link to where you got the driver and emitter?The lights are set over the back Of the tank where all th plants are, If I do a foreground plant I may add more light to the fRont.
I've taken these apart before I had a driver go out in one and they told me if I smashed the emiter they would send me a replacement. I bought a new driver and emiter for 6$ and rebuilt the fixture.
I know the sand may be overdone, but I believe there is a good reason for that. It looks nice and is easier to maintain than foreground plants,especially in a low tech tank with diggers. The diggers are the main reason I'm considering sand. I have two geophagus(earth eaters) an one black ghostknife. The Eco complete is not very nice to them. I'm hoping if I added the sand they would prefer to dig in that area and leave my plants alone.I think that it looks great, Seth!! Both tanks are coming along very, very well and I especially like the system on the right.
I would add some other plants instead of adding sand. It's hard to keep clean and overdone in this hobby in my opinion. Try a foreground of Marselia minuta, or get some of that "true" Sagittaria sibilants that Aaron is selling right now. That would be a nice bright foreground that would probably do well for you!
