Looks absolutely amazing, when you posted it with the bare rocks I was curious to see how it would turn out. The plants REALLY pull it together and add that "oomph".

As far as I know it should be fine so long as its not in a sealed system. The only toxic part, IIRC, is the gasses that are released.

Looks good, if it were me I'd bring the centre piece of rocks up forward more and maybe break the right hand side down into a shorter less symmetrical stack.

Was this tank ever cycled? I'm not trying to accuse but I'm highly skeptical of the test results you have.

Then stop posting threads asking if people have "any ideas".

Obviously that is going to come with some criticism of what you did or are doing wrong. If you can't take that, don't post the thread....

It definitely helps ease the anxiety I'm sure but not necessary imo.

If you can put it somewhere perpendicular to the joists that is always best or near an outside/supporting wall. 100G tank...
