tom - noted about the pencilfish. i've seen people using up aqua soil, it seems like a good product and doesn't yellow the water like ADA. however i'll be using old substrate from another tank. i'll keep up aqua in mind for my next tank though. lol 13000 lph, i'm guessing you mean 1300lph, i would like a more powerful filter but i already have the 2213 and the lily pipes from my old tank so i'll be sticking with it. a 2213 on 60cm tank still does the job in my experience
i checked out daves site and he supplies KH2PO4 and K2SO4 but no NO3 (im trying your EI method). i've been looking around and it seems like a hard chemical to get a hold of being a volatile substance. any idea of where i can get some in Aus?
volatile - the lid leaves space all along the back, about an inch or 2 for filters. but i'm not going to use the lid anyway unless i go on holiday or something and i want to prevent some evaporation.
