Wooooooooow. Thanks dude I'm going to have to read that again tomorrow so I make sure I get it all.
Plants are all I can think about lately. I think I can live with low to medium light, with no co2. I just need to see more growth than I have in my 60 gallon.
Everything I've read has had me thinking co2 was a necessity.

So im thinking e-complete, dual t5ho, root tabs and excel, and see what happens.......
Do you think 100lbs would be enough.?

Bet your delivery guy would have a few choice words for you. That is looking great, looking forward to seeing it progress and taking notes.
