So, finally got the 40B filled with water. Was a PITA trying to get the canister going, since it was level with the tank..
Still waiting for the call back on my 5lb to be filled at the shop and got a huge order from Han (h4n) coming in Wednesday.
Heres how the garden looks so far..

Still in the process of clearing up. Hopefully it'll be filled up once large shipment of plants arrive.
So, I've been getting a little frustrated on purchasing used 3-4 month old aqua soil.. lots of dust covering plants.. so, I imagined that bc i carefully added water into the used soil, with very minimal disturbance to the substrate, I whole walnut analogy of smaller particles falling to bottom, never really worked out?
So, again... took out all plants and this time purposely stirred up soil causing a dirty mess... siphoned a ton of the dirty water out.. and added fresh water... repeated this process a few times, and the very last time, seemed like everything settled in nicely.
As i added plants back in, I notice very minimal cloudiness of dust floating around water, which brought a lot of relief.
few minor changes:
Moved outflow across the intake filter and will be hooking up a co2 reactor to make co2 more efficient.
