Ok, found this thing. Wow, lazy on the updates. I know, pics. I got one, crappy phone pic, will have to do.



Finally liking this tank, I see new growth daily now that I've got PO4 under control.
Made some slight changes yesterday, removed bio-pellets, added zeo back on, removed filter sock. Thinking of pulling sand for a while to stabilize nutrients.
Warren thinks I'm nuts. Perhaps.

Hoping that by July, I can't see any rock. For the most part, I've neglected this tank since day one. It was obvious.
I've recently been spending more time with it, tweaking and testing, and that too is obvious.
I hope that it continues to grow, and I can spend more enjoyable time with it rather than solving issues after they happen.

Well it looks a heck of a lot better than it did before your journal got lost!

Yes, and I'd say that's happened more in the last month. PO4 really shuts down growth. I have NO3 somewhere between 2 and 50, closer to 50 I'm guessing, but that doesn't seem to bother much.

Haha, yeah PO4 is the devil. Uhm, 50 is large. Why do you not have a more accurate reading?

Dipping your finger in and tasting the water isn't accurate?

Fighting too hard with nitrate. I used zeo for years and liked it, so figured why not, I have the gear, so might as well use it
