    Hi all,

    Recently got back into planted aquariums!

    I have various tanks but the only one running now is a 45*45*55 with a Canister, beam works LED lights and CO2 paintball route.

    I'll post a pic this weekend!

    Plan on bringing a fair amount of contribution to this forum!

    So an update on my tank!
    Replaced quite a couple plants with what I want in the final tank.

    @mattlamm is sending up some HC and Blyxa Japonica which will hopefully go in this weekend.

    No algae problems or swings. Dosing nitrogen, potassium, and comprehensive once a week and excel everyday. Not dosing phosphorus at the moment because I'm a touch apprehensive of it.

    CO2 running 2.5 BPS 24/7.
