Looking good Joe. I especially like the last one. Are those pictures all of one tank? Do you need more hardscape stuff?

When do we get to come over to see them?

Thanks Cavan!
If you think I need more hardscape, Let me know, and I will take it!! Maybe I will just take it, it is great to have that stuff around!!

The last pic is the tank in my bathroom.. It has 2 2x40w T12 shoplights on it. No CO2, but I use Excell.
And you can come over anytime!!! Anyone can. My door is open

I couldn't make the last 2 meetings.. I'll be around! thanks for noticing I wasn't there!!
Thanks for the compliments!
I have 2 75g's and a 10g. The 75 with the field of Cuba has 2 2x40w shop lights over it with 5500k bulbs that need replaced lol
I dose:
10-12ml Plantex CSM+B after water change. about 5-6 in the middle of the week.
10ml Chelated Fe after water change. about 5-6 in the middle of the week.
15ml potassium nitrate after water change. 12 mid week.
4-5ml mono potassium phosphate/water change. about the same mid week.
15ml potassium sulfate after water change and about 5 or so mid week.
I also dose F Excell according to the label.

The tank has a 3/4" peat/mulm bottom capped with Soilmaster Select substrate.
That is about it.

BOB... I AM THE n00bIE ~LOL
