Thanks

It's only been running a 27 days but I'm happy with how it is so far all the media in the filter was pre cycled so saved all the spikes and that which you would normally get.

I've had to up the CO2 in that time to meet demand and dose a bit more Ei but all in all I'm happy with it

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.

API test kits, are you shaking the second reagent bottle well before testing???

I've been testing NO3 and Fe consumption for over a year.
The highest daily plant consumption of NO3 I've achieved is 3.5ppm, greater plant mass than your tank.
Highest daily Fe has been about .015ppm to .010ppm, this is harder to measure though.

Your tank looks nice!
I'd recommend starting a journal here to display your success and Q&A.
