Mostly because I don't want to ruin the surprise for the judges, I will be posting a journal of my 20g long here in the South Florida Plant Club forum. Although this tank is not in Miami, it was created by a south Floridian! :wink:

Setup Jan 10th.
Lighting: 3.95 wpg (2x20w Aquasuns, 3x13w AH Supply Power Compacts)

Not much improvement these past two weeks. I ran out of CO2 on March 8th and had no CO2 for about five days. The tank is running with CO2 again now, so hopefully the plant growth will pick up speed again:
