    Amazing that this tank is 15 years ago.
    Had to scan to digital from film, the net had just started, digital cameras where not popular.

    Woh! Things sure have changed in 15 years eh?

    Thanks for taking the time to scan this over - It's kinda cool to see how things were 15 years ago. Do you remember what kind of equiptment you used back then?

    Sandpoint made pH controllers and heat cables............I had those.

    Hamilton MH's where about it.
    Flourite was not around or ADA.
    People still thought PO4 - evil algae.


    I can go back farther, but no pics..........

    I think fewer and fewer are arguing in favor of low PO4/absent = good thing.
    Most people actually, particularly those who many deem as experts.
    This tide has shifted slowly but steadily over the USA and then on to other countries and languages.

    Well, I had 175w X 2 on this tank, which.........it about 3x what many had back then in terms of PAR.
