    Has been a trip last few weeks.

    Need opinions if everything is alright.

    The Crypt looks like it needs something, the Japonica is shrinking ,still all good and from Tom.

    Sorry for the white spots missed them but camera did not. LOL

    Can see algae in pic 3 , plus what I left in the 75, Might remove that this weekend as now getting a tad larger.

    Two lower ones, are the 125 the others are the 75.

    Thanks

    What kind of algae is that Jeff? Are you referring to the one on the driftwood you already discussed on another thread?

    Actually pic 4 Fab.

    Still working on that stuff.

    I took out that piece yesterday and poured H2O2 all over it and scrubbed it half gone now.

    A good rinse and back in the tank.

    Oh yeah, I see that... I am having some algae issues too, I am trying to rebalance Co2 with ferts because I wanted to reduce water changes from once every week to once every 2 weeks. Also, I was pumping too much co2 and my fish were suffering. Have you changed your ferts routine, light or only Co2?

    Well actually doing heavy water changes, once a week 1/2 tank now on both.

    Have not changed fert's

    Only CO2.

    Got Dennis's plants, and planted them, will see how they turn out.

    But tank looking better, the stratum gravel is doing good.

    I think the Eco complete is played, and the Stratum is kicking the Japonica really good, getting fat and thick, just like what Tom shipped.

    Doubled in size, that is the problem I think the gravel.

    Still only 3 or so pounds added to the 75 , 16 to go.

    Ordering 24 pounds for the 125.
