I want to start by thanking everyone that replied to my various threads of questions. The advice and information was incredibly helpful and vastly appreciated. You helped me avoid a number of mistakes/problems and I am happy to have been able to benefit from other people's experience and knowledge. I wouldn't have accomplished most of this without that assistance - Thank you all! Now on to the tank. Tech Specs: Tank Size: 29 gal Lights - BuildMyLED 10K planted Substrate: ActivFlora Floracor Black - smaller grain size and much darker than Eco. Also easier to plant in, and no Ammonia spike (which is why I did not go with aquasoil) Also dosing pressurized CO2 - currently at about 5-6 bps. Ferts are hooked into a GHL doser, and am dosing micros and macros according to PPS. I am also dosing extra Fe as I have several plants with heavy iron reqs. Livestock (all have been in tank a long time): 6 Black Phantom Tetras 5 Cherry Barbs 6 Kuhli Loaches I literally just finished planting last night. Here's the plant list: Pogostemon helferi Pogostemon erectus Rotala 'Magenta' HC 'Cuba' Lobelia cardinalis Heteranthera zosterfolia Isoetes lacustris Cryptocoryne parva Cryptocoryne sp - probably lutea or willisi Cabomba furcata Now on to the pics (all of these were quick shots that I did with my phone). Also - planning to get tank backing, just haven't done it yet.
