Well live in my grandma's retirement home so it's pretty big but I can only put my stuff in my room/bathroom. Since I'm only a teen, I won't be able to settle down for like 10+ years. I hope to be able to set up a nice 180P then, haha
I love the culture down in Santa Monica, so I hope to settle down there, plus it's close to the rest of my family.
But I gotta finish high school and college first, all my classmates are predicting me as my High School's valedictorian so hopefully I can get a scholarship to a good college.
In the meanwhile I am waiting for the HC to carpet :P

No Black Friday deals at my LFS; it's the sister store of AFA in San Fransisco. Canister sounds good, but the prices in-store are expensive I'll probably get the Eheim 2215 or the Fuval 306, an inline heater and either evilbay or acrylic lily pipes.

Or should I drop a few $$$ on a Fluval G3?

I have paintball CO2 with a nano regulator, so I may get a better regulator with a solenoid and get the CO2 glassware from NAG.

In other news, I am picking up my Canon 70D today at Best Buy's sale.

If you go canister what about an inline diffuser? Less equipment in the tank

I was considering that, but isn't it a pain to clean and reduces flow?

It's not really that hard to clean GLA makes a cleaning kit (which is just two stoppers and some acid detergent) or you can just soak in a cup with the acid, bleach, tilex. It's the same cleaning as a diffuser in the tank. I would say the only thing about inline is you have to clean before putting your filters back together and stuff but it's usually enough time soak for 30 prime for 30 or if you use an acid then just put it right back on. You can get two to solve this problem if you want but it's really not that bad.

Just make sure your regulator puts out over 30psi to make the inline work.

I would say it may reduces flow a little? Anything inline does a bit right?

Did a water change and regrouped the plants. Looks fuller, IMHO.
