Looks good for a low tech setup, I don't see too many low tech iwagumi's.

Only thing I would suggest is splitting to a half capful per day of Excel, as it breaks down rapidly in our tanks. So it's possible you are only getting the benefits of it half the time.


If it were easy we wouldn't be here

Nicely done. I think S repens is an underrated carpet plant.
I am an ALGAE farmer.
