  Things are coming along pretty well since I last spoke with you. I mainly 
use PMDD but, have started to make it up in separate components. It seems 
like I need more trace mix sometimes. Also I will add some kent iron when it 
seems like I need more iron. Yes, I have plenty of light 240watts over 55 
gallon. My K seems to always stay Hi though. I do water changes weekly. The 
only thing I really work at is keep the DIY yeast going at a good rate. 
Usually CO2=16 KH 4 pH 7.3. I still have all those other breeding tanks to 
try and keep up with downstairs. What a juggling act. I do have a couple 
Discus, liberty mollies and cories in the planted tank they seem happy. If 
something were really wrong they'd be the first to tell me. I also added some 
apple snails, Amano shrimp and MTS to help keep things in shape. Good to hear 
from you and thanks for the advice.
