Those look intense! I've had this idea for a while now to do an all stainless setup in one of those old fashioned stainless steel braced aquariums. I saw one on ebay once that had top and bottom stainless rims, but was rimless on the sides.

This might work as a glass spraybar....



I've also been told that BW is working on an "official" glass spraybar, but it could be quite a ways out on that. If it ever happens.

The "inflow" pictured above is available now (by special order. I don't have them in stock) for somewhere in the $80-$90 range. The range is because the product is new and I haven't gotten all the pricing info yet.

Speaking of Netlea soil, how about Netlea Soil.

Bring in a few pallets of these soils and you would sell out really quickly. Especially the BW stuff.

I've really been working on substrates for a long time now. Between the shipping cost and strict US regulations on soil import, it's tough. Just to make shipping work out I have to be able to place an order in the $10k-$20k range....And that would be just to get pricing similar to ADA soils (which I think is pretty high). Basically, I have to order a sea freight container. Air freight runs around $7 per pound from Asia.
