careful when servicing those prefilters. I've snapped the nipple off the top of 4 of them so far. if you have the larger version there is a SS replacement easily available on [Ebay Link Removed]

otherwise looks great!

I have some SS ones but they aren't good fit. Now I'm gluing top plastic one with epoxy to the lid. Tomorrow will install the firs glued one to check how it will work.

Thanks for the interest. There is nothing new to report. Growing algae on the glass walls, waiting moss to grow. Fighting with substrate buffering. Ive done a lot of 2x a week WC with tap water PH8 in order to keep PH over 7 in the tanks. Finally I got tired and dumped last week 1/4 jar of Seachem Alkaline buffer. Now PH is 7.7,gh 250,kh3-3.5
Bought some shrimps already to test setup: Painted red, Pumpkin, Intense -neon yellow and very high grade blue velvet /only 5 of them because price is like on Tb's/
They will be here end of the month. Then Pictures will pour.
