Thank you so much, I really appreciate the kind words. I figured a show off was the best way to introduce myself. I still have 3 more tanks I want to show off. My 100, my 75, and my 55 gallon.

Your tank rocks!! You've done a tremendous job. I can appreciate the work you've put into it.
Are you keeping SAE's in your tank? I see them in your pics but you didn't mention them.
Welcome to the forum!!

Nice stocking list. You really did your homework on this tank
Are you using pressurized CO2? What type of ferts are you using? What type of lighting do you have? Sorry for all the questions but I'm very interested as you've obviously been very successful!

Its okay, I do not mind answering at all.

I use...

2 eheim 2215s
2 300 watt stealth heaters
pressurized co2 with a 10 lb tank, co2 rate set at 2-3 bps
2 inches eco complete, 1 inch plain gravel
72 inch catfish lighting with 4 96 watt 12000k bulbs
There is another 36 inch coralife fixture with a 96 watt bulb on the back right, as well as a 36 inch 54 watt T5 fixture on the back left.

Also I use...

flourish plant supplement
flourish trace
flourish iron
flourish phosphorous
flourish excel (only on occasion)
flourish root tabs (only on occasion)

I havent gotten into dry ferts yet, but I would like to soon.

I forgot to add that I use a python for all water changes. I dont know what I would do without it...

Anybody want a plant list?

How many hours a day are your lights on?
How often are you dosing the iron, trace, phosphorous, etc.

lights are on 12 hrs/day

I use everything once a week except for trace, which I use twice a week.

Forgot to add that the temperature is set at 84 F, and there is not one piece of driftwood, rock, or decoration in the tank. It is all just plants.

I will try to get all of my progress pics in order so you all can see the difference. I have to find and organize them all first though.
