Wow,
it is looking good! Can't wait

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Day 19. 11-11:25am. Ran water test: pH 8; Ammonia 2ppm; NO2 5ppm; NO3 5ppm. Raised ammonia back to 4ppm.

Ammonia definitely going back down. Expect 0 tomorrow, so long as I don't lose power for hours again, lol.

SUPER EXCITING!!! Soooooo close! ^.^
I love the waterfall! I want a waterfall! I *pretend* that I have one by stuffing plants into my HOB filters. Not the same, though! Your setup is going to be so amazing - I can't wait!!!
