WONDERFUL that's the result I wanted to see when I tried blasting you with all the info before, excellent!!!
That's way I keep saying, pay's off to simply eliminated reasons why you have algae in the first place rather then masking with chem's.
I'm very happy for you and the tank looks very nice. And now you know how it works maybe consider replacing the rest of the plastic plants by live ones bit by bit?

Thanks alot persistance pays off...... I guess.

I am very happy with this tank ...... everyone that
comes in the frt door and walks into the foruer sees this tank
so you can imagine how frustrated I have been...... we
had guests yesterday evening and they were trippin on the tank.....
then they walked into our living room were the 120 gallon is and
again was shocked and amazed... and in the dinning room we
have a 75 gallon in my work shop is the 180 gallon and the 210 gallon
and the 10 gallon baby tank and the 20 gallon planted tank.
and I really get alot a good complements about our tanks ......
makes me feel good.......

So again .... thank You... for being there to see me through this.

I hope I can help out someone down the road.....

That's wonderful Ron!!! And I know exactly what you mean, I have 2 neigbours that are excited like a kid on Christmas each time I set up a new one and when it was turn for the 55g in the office (which was a plain nightmare for roughly 8 weeks) I was sooo embarrassed, specially cause its hard to hide people out from my office (gotta work right) but once this is overcome like yours, makes ya kinda feel double as good when you get compliments about them.

The Rocks have been called many different things.. Texas Holy Rock?
White Lace Rock?

They are Real Rock though I believe they would weigh roughly around
100 pds.. total I have some really heavy ones in there.

Thanks for the Complaments.
