jart Great thread... but due for an update

The 10 gallon tank on the right (just a few posts above) looks awesome!

Here's hoping my wife will remain as supportive as yours... time will tell!

I would like your opinion, please, on the utility of the temperature control valve. I am considering incorporating one into the plumbing of my 125 gallon (plans in this thread). Is it worth it, in your opinion? I can always adjust the temperature by feel, but this valve looks like it might make things a lot more simplified. The L1170-M2 valve has a temperature range of 60 to 120 degrees.

Regards.

I'm actually making some out of acrylic and I need people to try a couple out for me. If you give me some sizes tubing that you would need, I could probably make some.

Here's the link to my DIY thread -

I also made some reactors since i am PISSED OFF AT CERAMIC DIFFUSERS!!! i seriously broke like 4 of them already. and that last piece of equipment is just a modified contraption to make my wc's easier.


$70 for both of those hydors shipped, not too shabby

oh and those 1/2"x1/2" barbs were like $0.34 online which i could not find anywhere else! total for both reactors was about $17

Dan the Man Yeah, I've been thinking of getting LED's for my tank as well. They look great on yours. Are you using LED's all your lighting?

rickztahone yet another update. I added the Aquasoil and the super cheap moonlights that a fellow member started a thread on here. you really can't go wrong with only spending $5 for these LED's. The substrate filled in the gap i was kind of concerned about with that background. hopefully it doesn't all flatten out to show it later down the line, lol.
