Hi @Smackbat Nice tank! You may want to corral those floating plants (Frogbits) there with some plastic tubing, so they dont end clustering up at the front due to the current - they do not like to be submerged for extended periods of time - they wont mind to swirl around as long they they don't tumble and get submerged. Cut a strip of tubing and attach the ends to make a circle and put the Frogbit inside the circle! ... an added bonus is that it will provide more shade for your plants.

Cheers,
Michael
Already done, you should be able to see the tubing!

So I bought some API test strips and already have an Aquacare water test kit.

For the past 2 days I've had

PH - 7.5
NH3 - 0
NO2 - 0 (was somewhere between 1 and 2 last week)
NO3 - 20 ppm
KH - 80
GH - 180

So I think my tank is coming on nicely, although the GH is a little high?
