The trouble with lily or jet pipes is that they'd have to be dangerously strong to reach the full length of the tank. A 2232 (which I use) or 2213 (previously used) leave a lot to be desired on that front but are perfect with spray bars.
Thanks for the jet pipe info!
I'll start with the eheim, probably make my own more attractive spray bar, and then later I can look into the jet pipes if I still want to, but sounds like the 36" length of the 12g may be an issue.
Cant believe I missed this thread. Such a unique scape!
Yesterday I picked up some white sand for the river, the filter and heater should be here tomorrow and I've had some plants sitting here that need to get placed today/tomorrow. So the tank should be at least partially filled... today?!
Alrighty, I got my taiwan moss tied to little slate pieces and started filling.
I need to bring in more water tomorrow and get the filter hooked up.
I have that nice Amazonia soot cloud and layer on top of the water.
I still have to get my flame moss (mid-ground) and dwarf hair grass (background) planted.
Unfortunately I ordered the 5/8" size heater instead of the 1/2" so I need to either find one locally this weekend or order another and return this one to amazon. So the plants are going to be a little cold. Hopefully they are ok till early this week.
It's hard to tell but tied to the slate pieces is Taiwan Moss in the foreground, some flame moss in the mid-ground and dwarf hair grass in the back.
The filter was thrown together really quick but eventually I'll get more hose and put the spray bar on the other side and/or make a custom longer one to span the tank.
I also gave the tank it's first dose of Green Brighty, Brighty K, and Green Bacter.
