    Sweet! I think I am finally getting that piece where it needs to be. I made another adjustment to flow and stuff started happening. Amazing

    I made a couple of other adjustments. I took off the ray 2 and replaced with a t5ho that I had. I also moved over to EI.
    I appreciate all of the wisdom here. I learn something every time a new post is read

    The pogo Kimberly has taken off. My S repens is still melting. I have also noticed as I dose richer the pogo erectus is stunting. I think most of my rotala is better. A plant I love and continue to fail with is L glandulasa (sp).
    Some of my L Cuba is taking off. I don’t think color is awesome but stuff is growing

    I feel that way about s repens, I love the plant, but mine doesn't grow very fast. All I keep thinking about is toms post where he shows his s repens over a three week span and it's growing like a madhouse. As long as we keep at it and don't let frustration set in, we'll keep making progress. When's the next full tank shot :)?

    I’m on the road. I will take a full tank shot when I return. Thursday night or Friday.

    I know my angels eat star grass and I have seen them picking at other things. Maybe they are eating them

    @ least you know PO4 has not bottomed out.

    I try to keep near 2ppm of PO4 @ all times.
    Clean the glass about every 2-3 weeks with a cheap plastic topfin wand.(2-3 minutes)

    I’ve been scraping and then cleaning with a majic eraser as I do a water change. I think I am down to the spots I miss growing, thanks for the input.
