I'm using the Marineland Double Bright, as well. Feel free to peruse my journal to see how I have it suspended in a situation where a shelf wasn't an option.

About filters/flow. I didn't think my Eheim 2232 would provide enough flow but I'm now finding it has the perfect amount. My DIY spray bar made from Lee's Rigid Tubing works really well.

In a low flow scenario, it's also possible to use a small powerhead to increase flow. I bought a few of different sizes just to be safe and find that the Koralia Nano 240 works well, though isn't needed in my case.

Anyone have a Mr. Aqua Sticker I could buy/trade with?

Thought I'd ask here first before asking on the SnS Thread.
My bf and I are setting up a new tank over this weekend and realized that the used Mr. Aqua tank be bought doesn't have a sticker. Hopefully someone knows where we could buy one, or better yet, have one they don't really need and could sell 1 to us or trade for something

Can't wait to receive mine. Ordered one from Marinedepot 3 weeks ago when it was out of stock, still waiting for it to ship, ETA 4-6 weeks.

I was able to grow a Cinereum and "Mini" without CO2 in this tank. There was a definite stunt in growth, but overall they stayed very healthy and did not melt. Let's see if the others will play along.

Looks like this on top of the tank:


It's not great, but it does the job. The only reason I bought it was because someone local was selling it for cheap. I hear there are issues with the ballast and premature death.

Looks like you are starting with immersed? Very smart move. Saves so much time and money that way. Any more clear shots? Its bit fuzzy so can't really see the layout of the setting

If you check my journal, I'm using a Marineland Double Bright LED fixture that provides way too much light. Have it suspended quite a bit above the tank. But it's cheap and energy efficient like woah.
