Another update...I had a bit of filament algae growing on a java fern leaf so I did a switch up on my maintenance routine. Ive been doing a 10% WC on mondays and thursdays adding each time 1/4ml of Flourish Comp, and now 1/2ml of Excel. The results are....
A much darker tank apperance?
Oh yes...THIS is why its darker!

The plants are looking great! The tank just keeps looking better and better.

Thanks everyone Thats just some leftover manzanita sticks from my 55G. I need to dive in there and work on the moss wall, Ill do that next week when I thin out some of that water lettuce.
Since things are going so well Id like to order a couple more super red cherries and some nerite snails. Im probably going with Zebra and Tiger nerites.3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon

Here we are at almost 2 weeks later thought id do an update.
Big filter or small tank? I was doing filter cleaning and as the 5G is on my bathroom counter I thought this pic was funny as the filter dwarfs the tank and thats just an XP3
Dark tank due to the amount of water lettuce
