Cool... glad you figured out the leaking issue.
So is the Sat+ doing alright elevated at that distance? I'm just wondering if you should lower it a bit?
You must be a mind reader! I changed the way my light was hung based on somewhatshocked 12gal long journal
since I use the same light hangers. It looks better, I was going to post pictures this weekend when I change the pipes and tubing.
I just lowered the light a bit (from 10" to 8" from the lowest part of the substrate) to see how my growth is. I was getting pearling before but the HC wasnt "crawling" along the ground like in other people's journals. Lets see how it does for a couple of days.

So I was debating between a jet and a F1 cal aqua outflow (like a mini lily pipe). I got a cal aqua pipe and I also got an eheim jet outflow that the LFS was going to throw away to cut and test that out as well if the cal aqua pipes dont work.
This is my reasoning behind getting the cal aqua pipes vs a jet. I have no facts to back this up other than the voices in my head. The jet outflow looked like it would give me a strong "jet" across the tank in a concentrated flow pattern. I didnt know how it would fare front to back as it is also deeper tank. I wasnt sure if I wanted to increase my flow even more as my filter is oversized and I already have it turned down and I didnt want to turn my filter down all the way.
This totally may not be the case and you guys can correct me if I'm wrong. I may just end up with a collection of glassware :P That I can save up and have an excuse to buy another tank! :P
