Full disclosure... I don't know what I'm doing.

Tank is 5 months old, next project is to increase the spray bar to cover the length of the tank

Then because of the poor co2 output I am getting from the diffuser I will replace it with @foxfish 's DIY co2 reactor

I am having an issue with red plants not being red enough, The rotala Indica is meant to be red but is completely green, I assume this is because its not getting enough light.

The carpet was added at Xmas, so is now 6 weeks old and it should have grown more but again I assume its suffering from a light deficiency due to it being such a deep tank and also overshadowing from other plants.

This is only my 3rd ever tank, had a 90L then a 125L and now this is roughly 360L so its a bit of a step up in size, this is also my first attempt at a planted tank.
