Fish in. Plants to come in a couple days. Discus in corner feeding. Stendker discus acclimates very well, feeding after several minutes after transferring to new tank. Highly recommend them.

Aqua Soil?

Have you had issue with algae outbreak after really stirring up the sub?

I have yet to have any issues, I try and only stir a 1/3 of the tank at an given time, plus a big water change right after.

I have read many journals were people run a UV for 24h after they really stir up the sub.

Does UV mess with nutrients at all?

Not a day goes by that I don't do something in the tank. Maybe as simple as trimming a couple of ratty looking leaves, to full on pull, top and replant whole groupings of plants.

I save the major moving, topping and replanting for water change days so I can get rid of some of the stirred up water.

The mess AS can make, even if you try to be gentle is my only beef with the product, oh and the price

Did you mean to ask me? The Taiwan lily is doing fine. I trimmed a lot of the "messy" stems and left the nice looking ones. No melt so far and I see some new growth so I'm expecting all will be well.
