Does that diffuser work? I had one that was supposed to work with DIY systems, but there wasn't enough pressure for the co2 to escape.

Haha, I always love to see what a difference a few months makes in a planted tank. It looks awesome!!

I can only imagine the size of you DIY co2. It would make my head spin. I'm having a hard enough time hooking one up to my 28 gallon

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Absolutely gorgeous tank! Did you add more plants or is that just the original ones filling in a LOT? All your fish look gorgeous and healthy too! I am gealous...I'd love to have a tank that size :) What do you do for water changes??

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
