The AC 20 can be easily adjusted in flow rate and should work fine on your tank. I use one on my 10g and I feel it is a bit too weak for that tank at full speed.

dj2005 Red Root Floater sometimes flowers. The flowers aren't anything all that spectacular, however. Link to flower picture: http://i44.tinypic.com/nwzfhh.jpg

LedxZep Nice tank, cant wait till everything fills in

Luichenwai Quick update.

5-12-10
No big changes. I had some UG in there, but def doesn't look as good without the Co2.. I'm opting to go ALL Marsilea Minuta for the carpet, Mini Pellia on the rock hill, Frogbit as floater.

Are there any floaters that will flower?

Using the cap to measure isn't all that accurate.

You should be dosing .5ml per day or 1ml per day if dosing 2x the amount, which is what I do in my Mini M. You can, of course, choose to continue dosing every other day or whenever, but I do not suggest going above 1ml. I know that Seachem recommends doing a large dose after a WC, but their reasoning is due to excess floating debris, of which you shouldn't have much of if you are doing a "proper" WC (making sure you aren't dumping the water in causing the substrate to fly all over the place).

Outlawboss Nice! Once that MP starts to grow out a bit, you can take pieces of it off that rock and start placing it in all the crevices. MP starts slow but once it gets going it's very steady.

Luichenwai Dj2005-Thanks again! :-)

I think the contrast in color with the rocks and MM did the trick! I cant wait till the Mini Pellia grows!

My thoughts exactly!

dj2005 That's some healthy looking MM!

zeldar Looks good!

I don't know how well UG will grow in here without co2 and using inert gravel. I just didn't get nice growth with my UG until I slapped the diy co2 on it.

I agree, some mini pelia would look nice all over the rock pile. Fissidens would also look great on the pile.
