I set up a DIY CO2 and diffusing with a diffuser. It looks working.

It's been a week since planting but i didn't see any significant progress. I'm adding K and water from the cycled 30 gallon tank daily for now. I'm not adding any N,P or Fe for now not to encourage the algae to grow. There is 6 hours lighting with 2 hours siesta. Is this usual? Any suggestion will be gratefully appreciated.

That's a good beginning. I like the hardscape but it would be better with 3/5other smaller stones.

The gravel looks nice.

Only 6 hours of lighting ? That's not enough, you should at least light your tank for 8/10 hours.

You should also add more plants, there aren't enough in my opinion.

Sorry for my english ... Wink

Here's an update;

I changed the stone in the middle with a bigger one and made some trim adjustments.

hi emrextreme !

Your tank looks good.

But I would say I prefer the version of the 3 july for the configuration of stones. The balance was better.
The middle stone is really too huge now.

I think you saw it but you have a real problem of algae. If I have understood you use 6 hours of lighting with a pause. I know some people preconize this system against algae. I really think you should try 8 hours (at least or more) of lighting non-stop. In the nature the sun doesn't make break.
You also should test your water. A problem probably exist.

Keep your tank clean, light up well, use appropriate fertilization and boost the co2 ! cheers

But everything have well growed (not sure of this verb).

No life in this tank ?

Anyway good job and i hope you will see this message.
