    Hello from PHX.
    I've been in PHX for a looong time(20+ yrs)...work in tech, and always had an interest in fish and model airplanes....my 2 main hobbies.
    The planted tank side of the hobby has kept my interest for ~4 years now.

    I currently have a 200gln tank.
    Tank has CO2, Neptune Apex and BML LED strips....3 strips at 90W and 1 75W strip at the front(tank is a flat back hex). It's a lot of light, so I run at ~75% max.

    I just did a full rescape(2weeks ago)....
    Th tank has about 95 Litres of Aquasoil (90L regular and 5L powder on top), which is under some powersand L.
    I got 20lb dragon stome from AquariumCoop, that sent me some excellent pieces.

    I did a dry start for 2 weeks with HC and Eleocharis Belem. I flooded the tank this week, and the belem seems to have taken off...the HC seems OK, but not spreading as fast as the belem seems to be.


    Hopefully all the articles I've read here on barrreport will help get what I've always wanted....a lush capetted tank! Fingers crossed!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I had entire tanks that were that big :) Hope you have a smooth transition.

    Is there a section to start such a journal, or just a new thread that I keep posting to?
