I love your tank! I just read the whole thread and your tank has really come a long way. I really like the Valls and am thinking about ordering some for along the back and maybe one side of my tank.

Wow that's a lot of reading lol. Thank you the tank has come along nicely. Also the jungle vals get really tall and will also sends out runners in places that you don't want them lol but they are a great and easy plant.

If you get them make sure to use root tablets with them. Also I think I have heard they don't fair well in soft water

That's towards the softer side probably medium. Mine is about 10dgh with a ph of 7.4 and it grows for me.

I am sure my ph is 7.8 but do not have a test kit for hardness and it has been a really long time since I had it checked but I think it was 8 I will have to take it to my LFS to have them check it with thier liguid.

When I first started this tank in April I bought a API master test kit plus the GH &KH test kit. I am glad I did as most stores around me either don't have a kit to test the water or I don't trust them to test it lol

I have one small fish store that is really good and they will test if for me for free and I can trust them I have dealt with them for years.

Boredom, love your tank! Couple of questions, are the root tabs the only ferts you have used? And is that play sand that you used with the top soil? Thinking about using soil (Miracle Grow Organic Potting Mix) and play sand for my tank.
