    Hi! First off, really great job with the Biocobe setup! I also have a similar setup but have been struggling with the lighting, especially with algae. Did you change your lighting after the initial setup (I believe you had two 10000k lights, first bulb at 8:00am - 9:00pm and the second bulb from 9:30am - 7:30pm)?

    Hey I never saw this PM until just now a little late I guess! Thanks for the kind words. I diffuse the co2 by putting the airline tube right underneath the pump so it comes out and right into the pump impeller which diffuses the co2, works like a charm and when the co2 hits the impeller it makes a little sound which acts like a bubble counter. I did use a bubble/co2 ladder at one point but it's didn't look nice and it had to go. The first chamber is nothing except temp prop and heater. The back middle chamber is Filter floss then Purigen and then the Bioballs (which i'm not a big fan of and really could use my nicer ceramic media but it works so I haven't switched). The third chamber has the original sponge, and a small bag of crushed oyster shells and the return pump of corse.

    Hi! I just wanted to say I was really inspired by your biocube setup. I've been copying everything you've done and so far its looking great. Thanks!

    I just have one question for you. How do you diffuse your co2? Do you have it in the tank or in the chambers. Thanks again!
