Stems will be phased out as echinodorus grow up but serve a purpose now. Will be adding a bit more light to the right. Am dosing with a small dose of excel daily & comprehensive every other day. Looking at getting dry ferts & mixing my own after some research here.

If its anything like my Aquatop CF400 then it's leaking at one of the screw down hose collars on the intake line. I had to really reef on mine to get it sealed.

Today's tank - moved the tree a little to the left to get it out if dead center, rearranged the anubias & hygrophilia diformis to bunch them together more effectively, trimmed off a few dead or moss covered branches. Starting to approach my vision for the tank thanks to what I'm learning here!

Dosing with Seachem Comprehensive & Excel daily. Will be switching to PPS dosing with dry ferts & Metricide 14 when the Seachem supplies are depleted to lower cost. Any suggestions regarding aquascape, lighting, etc gratefully appreciated. Will probably be doing a floater RAOK soon!

The tank looks great. I'm also originally from Michigan (moved to Connecticut last year).

Day 1 was all plastic, now is all live plants. It just keeps getting better, the more I learn here. Thank you all!

Sort of the bible for CFS500 is CWO4Gunner's review and modification thread. I read a bit of it and toward the end there's a suggestion to put the filter on a timer for a periodic shutdown to allow air that accumulates from cavitation to escape. See page 25, post #248. Maybe that's got something to do with your issue?
