So far so good! The CO2 generator is up to 15 bpm and the rubber stoppers are holding strong. I put soapy water around the edges of the stoppers and where the air tubing is inserted and no sign of leaks. (keeps fingers crossed)
According to the tracking data, the picotope will be here Tuesday and so will the extra filter media. I'm not sure what's going on with the heater. I got an email with a tracking number earlier in the week but every time I try tracking it, it says there is no information available for that number. I'm going to email them today.
Would it be a good idea to put down a thin layer of aquarium charcoal on the bottom before adding the AquaSoil?
