Anyone see anything I should do different? I do plan on buying more rock but not yet.
Looks very nice!

Do I have a problem with my heater?
The stick on temperature things are not the most accurate. I would go buy a better thermometer to check to make sure that your stick on one is close to the proper temp.

Nice!! And 5ppm will give you a nice strong colony of bacteria too. I stuck with 4ppm myself.

Can't wait for new pictures after you've got more stuff set up!
