Looking good mate, are you going to add any more fish?  Discus would look nice
Did think about them but then not sure how they would get on with current stock also I then have more agro keeping water in check it's easy as it is  tank runs a PH of around 6.6 so not sure if they comparable I know Joe would know

It sure is different lol I think coming from marine you'll probably find it easier though, never need to worry about topping off or salinity with freshwater

In some instances it's a lot easier and less labour intensive then marine but I'll soon give my opinion once I've had to take time and do a big pruning session


Things are still growing away at a very rapid rate and looking healthy and currently no sign of any algae









I also cant seem to get any nitrate reading I've upped the Ei dose and been feeding heavy so looks like the plants are just munching through it.

It’s looking good mate, and long time no speak.

I’m breaking my marine down, had enough of it.
