HAHA
Remember, I used to have pressurized, but I sold it off as I grew increasingly interested in reefs, but then I couldn't resist high- tech planted tanks anymore. This tank was originally bought to be a reef, but I changed my mind one day when reading one of Uglegenious' journals

Ouch. Know how much my soil-based substrate would cost you? Less than $25. **hint hint**

Lego, don't tempt me any more LOL
We already went over this, I pull out plants and replant a LOT.
Don't go and try to save me money LOL
But seriously, I don't want to have to worry about the soil becoming exposed to the water causing GW. I'm still experimenting with plants and I wan't to be able too....
I'll stop talking lol.

I will buy Aquasoil
I will buy Aquasoil

You have seen my tank journals, right? I'm constantly moving and pulling plants around. And I've never had greenwater. Never. And the debris that it kicks up settles in about 2 minutes. And soil doesn't leach ammonia for a month.

$25 for soil. $125 for Aquasoil.

All I'm gonna say

Ok, I'm convinced that I'll be drilling the tank. What do you guys think about the filter? Could I just get by with using an xp3 plus the k2? I'm guessing that that would be plenty. What do you guys think?
