your own tank's lighting will very strong and that tiny winy bit of room light will not have any effects lah.... as for crs, you can either dose little and hope for the best every day(who knows if ur fert contains copper or other substance that are harmful to invert) or don't keep crs at all.

Errr... I think you miss out the tank water cycle which is usually 1 week plus.

On another note, why do you keep out the light after dosing the fert?

Keep a look out on the quality of the water.

Nice project bro, can't wait to see ur photo updates. Maybe can consider adding more soil to the back to create a steeper gradient? Might create a greater depth perception. Thanks for sharing!

Tats what i think oso, after laying the soil, it actually had quite a steeper gradient, but when the rock is added in, due to the weight, the slope was press down cos i forgot to add support under the rocks. Haiz, nvr mind la lesson learn

If your plants are high maintenance, get a chiller,
If your plants are of low to mid maintenance, get two fan will do.
