Wow for that price by all means go for MarinePure if you have space to build a bigger sump to contain more media.

Fplata and Nathaniel: Thanks! I have spotted a dozen new born PRL already, can't wait to see how they grow up to be...

New shrimp keeper, inspired by this. Maybe do by a 3Lx2H just as this or a 2Lx3H. I'll definitely try to change it up!

The poret is doing fine, no decrease in water flow so far. Every week when I change water the nitrate tested 5-10 ppm through. I wonder where it comes from. The Hakata PRL are from the official distributor in Hong Kong.

Actually I just added some lucky bamboos in the sump to see how good they can suck out the nitrate...

Each bar is 20" and have more chips than the bulb. I will post an update when I receive them.
I have this excate same led strip, super easy to use, very low profile and I use 2 strips over a 10gal and get Med light easy... You can link them together also via the clips that are attached on each strip. I used an old 12v cell phone charger to power them.

Just thought I'd mention bio home which I think is made by power house ??? Is the freaken BOMBB!!!! Check them out and you'll see why I will

How long have you been using the biohome, and does it really reduce nitrate?
