Nice. If the noise becomes annoying just lower it a touch until it stops.

Looks nice. Like the background too. How is plant health?

My java fern is coming back from an aggressive salt dip while war was waged upon the pink ramshorn snails. The Anubis is doing well but seems to be a little upset about the new LED lighting (2 weeks ago) there is a little burn on the leaves. The Argentine sword has a little browning too. All of the mosses are growing well. The corkscrew val and the other miscellaneous plants all seem to be growing well.
I'm just keeping an eye on them. Problem with mystery snails is they eat anything that isn't healthy so I really have to inspect well and often. Click image for larger version

See how you get on with the new spraybar location. It might take a couple of weeks to see an improvement but I fear the LED light may add to the problem. More light drives the uptake requirement of carbon and nutrients higher so if you see no improvement in a couple of weeks it's time to start thinking about liquid carbon of lowering the light intensity.

Glad you like it! This is the only background I have found that didn't look cheesy and fake.
It is double sided and I am using the river bed image.

I have been hearing about the liquid Co2. Fluval Excel right?! I am sure there are other brands but this one is the most posted.

I have my paypal account handy if needed. But I try to avoid chemicals unless critical.
