Nice! Miracles make some great tanks, also make sure you start a journal so we can follow along.

Will do! I had a 90 gallon planted tank years ago much like yours with the overflow, sump, T5 lighting and EI dosing. No sump this time as I'm going to try following Dennis Wong's setup. Any recommendations where to get plants?

So far all the plants except some pathetic Buce's are tissue culture. I ended up getting in on a group order from Aquascaperoom.ca that was posted on this forum. I believe the price was a buck or two cheaper than everywhere else and I could order the quantities I needed.

SKA shrimps out of Calgary has a nice selection of plants normally. For 'some what' local your best bet might be Angelfins (Guelph) or get Big Al's in London to order you some Tropica plants in. Ofcourse there are members here who sell too, I tend to sell alot locally but don't bother with shipping.

Other online stores are theplantguy.ca, thewetleaf.ca, and aquabotaniccanada.ca.

I would love to buy some plant cuttings from your next trim if you can make it available . I really love your pogostemon eructus and some of those red plants.

Where were you last month! I had so much P. Erectus I threw a ton out. I normally only sell locally but can ship some when the weather warms up a bit. The way I am growing the P. Erectus now its hard to sell but there are off shoots that develop.

Looks like today is the day to do planted tank maintenance so I thought I would share as well. Tank is doing pretty good, I am two days behind on the maintenance and it needed a trim. I have a bit of a GSA problem (have for a while), really the only algae that is bothersome right now. My dosing is dialed in for after a trim but it consistently appears very rapidly once the plants all peak at the same time. I think I will be tweaking the macros up a bit on the same mix and see how that goes. Another option is to ramp up the dosing as the plants get thicker but the doser would need re-programmed every trim...

Pre trim

Post trim

The S. Repens, H. Araguaia and even the AR mini are going to get hacked back to the nubs next week I think. I love how dense they grow in and don't have it in me to rip them out and re-plant. (It would make a mess too)

Beauty shots..



I don't get to see the tops all the time due to ripple.

I love that purple..

Happened to be walking by when the t5 bulbs were warming up today. It caught my eye and now I wish I had dimmable ballasts.
