Wow, nice start! I love the way the wood has been placed. I just started a 100 gallon planted tank and am getting the plants tomorrow. Can't wait to see the tank after the plants grow in more

Co2 is Up and Running! Finally took so long to get everything shipped and set up. My atomic diffuser as of the last 30 mins has created alot of extreamly tiny bubbles everywhere in my water, hopeing it dies down a bit because it makes it look like merky, Im running about 2-3 Bubbles Per Second. my PH has already dropped from 8.4 to 7.8 in about 25mins of it running. hope it drops more because i believe it should right?

I did about a month of solid research, and Im still learning things....like neededing a drop checker, that I had to order last night. Im glad that people can tell I put alot into it because I really wanted to do it very well, and for my second aquarium I wanted to do it right.
