    Hi Everyone,

    I just joined the Barr Report, I've been a fish keeper for many years and have recently gotten back into the hobby after a break when I first got married. Now I have kids as well and have gotten them bitten by the fish keeping bug!

    Currently I have a 55 Gallon planted aquarium that is home to a school of 15 tiger barbs, a clown pleco, 6 Bronze Cordyas and 3 Panda Garra's.

    They will soon be moved over to a 150 gallon that I am in the process of building a stand for and purchasing the remaining equipment I need (still need lights, a heater and 1 more FX6).

    I'll get some pictures up of my set up and I have a few questions about some issues I've been having as well!

    Thanks for having me

    Ryan

    Ok here is a shot of my set up, its a bit of an older shot as the 20 gallon tank below has some java moss and it has exploaded. but the baby platties and swords love it.

    I seem to be battling a BGL outbreak recently in my established 55 gal tank. Here are the specs:

    Lighting: 1 x dual t5h0 on for 4 hrs a day & 1 x 36" Planted plus 24/7 running the 24 hr cycle
    CO2: pressurized with a dedicated pump and sera flora reactor. My drop checker is a nice lime green at all times
    Ferts: EI dosing with Equilibrium on Sundays (50% water change days)

    I did some measurements tonight and this is what the results were:

    Nitrite: 0 mg/l
    Nitrate: 5-10 MG/l
    Phosphate: >5 mg/l
    GH: 300 ppm
    KH: 50 ppm
