It's a sun sun 602 or 603 and I don't like it. No flow, the attachments it has would only fit rimless tanks. I have a ghetto lowest rig outflow. Currently I have that filter a big aquaclear and 2 tiny power heads in there. I took at the media out of the filter except one sponge, I might just fill it will scrubbers or bio balls and see how that works. I have a few other bigger sun sun filters and they are awesome. This one Is a disappointment. I wonder if I could upgrade the pump. I shortened the hoses quite a bit and rigged it up next to the tank to try and improve flow

Nice setup! I want this someday, right now I have a 55G and a 10G. I like how you used the shelving units for your tanks. I thought about doing this as well and then attaching the light fixtures to the bottom of the shelves. I could stack 3 or even 4 tanks on top of each other this way. Maybe tax return season I will do it.

Awesome room!

I attached one light to one shelf, this unit is 2 pieces for upright supports so I couldn't stack them the full height. But I like how this came out. Thanks for the kind words man.

I'm a newbie. Are your emersed tanks meant to speed up growth?

If so, how is the transition for plants grown out of water to in water?

It speeds up growth and it allows me to have an endless producing plAnt bank for myself. and from what I've found when I clip from the emersed tank and plant in a submerged tank there is no melt of any kind.

Nice, I was going to use my 10G for growing / propagating, I might have to look into this.

My goal is to eventually have a few tanks just for growing. Maybe 2 to 3 plants per tank. Also, try to breed different kind of fish in each tank. Just so I have that endless supply of plants so to speak. Emersed might be the way to go with some plants.

I broke my tank down and moved my plants (Sags, Cobomba) to tank with very little water and they almost died. What plants did you do this with?

Some plants do have an adjustment period going from emersed growth to sub, luckily not many melt-like they do when transitioning from sub to emersed! Most sword plants will lose their emersed growth when transferred into a submersed environment. Certain stem plants look totally different when in their emersed state, often only recognizable to the trained/practiced individual. While emersed is great in that you've got an almost endless supply of plants to use(stems especially!), many people grow specific plants emersed as it's the only way they will bloom. Many of the folks that keep Cryptocoryne species grow them emersed for this reason. An emersed set up is really quite versatile in its function all dependent on how you set it up! Just like with filled tanks, you can create two totally different emersed environments by changing certain variables. I really enjoy the versatility of emersed, plus it allows me to focus on growing happy, healthy plants without dealing with the stupid fish. Hahahaha.... I guess I just like the flora better than the fauna.
