    Sonny, the light is on. It is a Chihiros A Series light. I just did not take a photo of the light.

    Are you injecting CO2 and ferts?

    There is maybe like $100 of buces in there. Probably more. I ordered some from BucePlant, BuyPetShrimp, TPT and some from members of SCAPE. No hair algae or algae whatsoever. Just dosing some API CO2 Boost and API Leaf Zone. My ThriveS should be coming in tomorrow.

    Great job... just a suggestion, would you consider adding a black ground...even just paper... already outstanding, I think black in the back, plus ur lighting, would really make the leaves look stunning and add depth... just my 2 cents... either way u go, love ur tank....

    when I first put the tank together I was like "nah I dont want a background." now that it is coming together I feel like I really should do something about the background.

    Mike, that is very generous of you...again. This tank will strictly be buces only though, maybe make an exception if I can get my hands on some of this buce moss that I have been hearing about lately.
