OP can you give us some more info on it? i hear that the DIY usually has high PH spikes for the first few weeks so that is one of my concerns.
I have heard as long as several months on the ph spikes, which is a big part of why I have held off on this so far (although as long as Ive held off I could of had it done, ready and in the tank goin by now Im sure... i've been looking into this general idea for atleast 6-8 months LOL

Yeah, the PH issue is with the concrete. Most have said weekly waterchanges, this guy stated daily so I am wondering if that helped speed things... if I remember right he said he did them for about a week in the video
