    HAHA! Yes, it's definitely not the most visually appealing. I'm using a freshly cleaned, second hand, ADA diffuser and I'm not getting very good microbubbles. I think it's because I'm running 1 bps from a 74g CO2 canister--I don't think the working pressure is very high.

    Open to ideas! (Sorry for hijacking the thread, the tank really does look great--perhaps, according to John, diffuser notwithstanding )

    Yes it is. I donít know yet. Too early to tell but it seems to do the job.

    Experiencing a disastrous melting of my tissue culture HC. First time to try tissue culture might be my last.

    Hereís a FTS for tonight. My bacopa red and rotala wallichiís new growth is green. I hope I can get it to turn red again.

    Took the rock out on the right side, added more soil, planted some DHG, s. Repens, and lobelia cardinalis. Cranked up the co2 and hope for the best.

    Not much going on. Plant growth is not that great. A bit stumped with whatís going on with this tank. Maybe just needs more patience lol.

    Only the stems seem to be doing fine.

    I am really struggling with this tank but trying to be ever so patient with it. So many issues like plant deficiencies I am unable to correct by increasing CO2 and fertz to what seems like a diatom invasion, and tissue culture plant die offs.

    Frustrating but still enjoying it.

    Took out the main rock and added some red plants. Now just waiting for the mound to fill in.

    Oh looks like your plants grew very well. Congrats on getting your aquarium more or less where you wanted it.

    That is a great looking tank! Looks so much bigger than 14 gallons. Nice job.

    They have finally adjusted to my tanks parameters. The daily 20-30% waterchange for one week was all it took for this tank to finally be stable.

    It is actually 15 gallons. My title is misleading but I donít know how to edit it. Thanks for the compliments. Your tank will be epic soon! Itís already awesome but once the plants grow in it will be perfect.
