Yeah you know the old saying its better to have too much... then not enough. I was contemplating using the code on the DRS website to get a XP3 but I just don't like the fact that I wont get the filter substrate with it. A 2217 is about $150 and I think that's fair for what you get. I also think that will do a great job as a reactor for the co2. How do you dissolve your carbon in the tank?

Im super stoked about the MH as this will be my first foray into the MH segment of lighting the planted tank. Ive had/have about every other method and think this is will not only give me the best look light spectrum wise but also keep with the contemporary style im going for.

I had a fishneedit 70w MH but it was just too bright for me. My tank is in front of my bed so it was hard to sleep with turned on.

If you need plants let me know, I have all kinds =)

gl with the build.

I hope it is an exciting build!
