Sounds like a good idea! Maybe if we ever get a website going we can start working on a newsletter

What temp is your 7gal running at? I seriously wouldn't use anything else than Vantec Steal case fans. I'm using a 92mm, but the 80mm would be fine for a 7gal. Anything else it too noisy for me, but YMMV. All I did was wire the case fan up to a RadioShack 12V adapter and prop the canopy up with the fan blowing across the water. I'll take a pic tomorrow for ya!

Just to let you all know, between all of my tanks, girlfriend, and summertime activities, I don't have any time to put towards the website right now. Hopefully, my free time will start opening up in a few weeks. If somebody else wants to lead the technological researching side of things, please be my guest. Until then, I'll make a posting to the forum once I can become involved again. This doesn't mean that everbody can't keep brainstorming though.

Dosing is simple, EI method, macros/iron/excel on T and S days, traces/excel on MWF, co2 ~30ppm, 50% WC on Sunday.
Is it the Ecco?

I do use EC in my planted tanks, but that's not a secret...just a good substrate.

Today it was only 80, I am sure with the rain it was cooler yesterday. Things seem to be fine for the guppies because they sure seem interested in courtship this evening. I would still be interested in seeing the picture of the rig-up you did. I am not such a techie I know the pros and cons of why the Vantec Steal is so great, but I will take your word for it. Thanks for explaining about the 12 v. I had been wondering how once the fan was pulled from the case, where I would get the power.

I think we are probably still in the brainstorming mode right now anyway given the recent events

I was just giving you a hard time on the website thing, we aren't in a rush. I think we all have enough on our plates for the time being!

That's cool. I've just had a lot going on lately all around the board. I need a vacation!

Here's tonight's update!


I did a major hack job on the Eichhornia and Heteranthera. The HC is filling in slowly but surely. The combination of Elatine triandra, HC, and Hydrocotyle verticillata make for a great right side foreground. I also split the Limnophila aromatica so I can get some new growth from the bottom stems. The xmas moss is starting to show a lot of new growth now that the temps has dropped and stabilized at 78F. The R. macrandra is -still- taking it's time giving me good stems, but it's getting there!

A couple more:

Looking good Erik! I do like the H. zosterifolia much better when it is kept lower. Looks like a nice bush in the latest pic. The E. diversifolia looks better when kept lower too.

Are you using a different color bulb now or is it the cam settings? The red seems to have disappeared from the L. aromatica and R. mac...
