Wow. Sad day! Sorry to hear, good luck on your new path. Well I hope we'll still get to see some amazing aquascapes from you.

pwolfe Best of luck in all your endeavors. Just looked over your linkedin again, you'll bounce back I'm sure of it better than before I'm sure of it.

I'll get to making that thing we talked about sometime this weekend.

A little known fact, sponge bob is inspired by Amano

Jahn Hi! New to the forums and back to the hobby after many many years - in fact, back because my son would like to start. I just read this thread and wanted to thank you for journaling your tank - very inspirational! Although my son's tank is probably going to be more inspired by Spongebob Squarepants than Amano, I'll try my best to keep it somewhat in balance and in health (and beauty) over here!

Hayden Hi Frank, I've been trying to contact you about my upcoming order. Just curious if you got my PM, I'd like to get going on it soon. Thanks!

However, I have some questions regarding ADA equipment: the CO2 Speed regulator. Your ADG store carries the CO2 Speed Regulator along with a special N. American co2 adapter (http://www.adgshop.com/CO2_Speed_Reg..._p/101-303.htm)

I currently live in Canada (and we use CGA 320 standard CO2 tanks) - is this CO2 adapter compatible? And how much does ADG sell it as standalone??

Thanks
Yes this adapter is compatible. We will be sending some (as apparently they're a custom item made by the Eheim distributor in Houston) to our Canadian partner, Miyabi Aqua Design shortly. PM me for more info.

tizzite Hi Frank, thanks for all the great insight. I am planning a planted tank setup with a sump, and since you recommend raising the lily pipes to the surface for more oxygenation, do you think that running an airstone in the sump would produce the same beneficial effect?

if you want pearling, you need more than healthy plants. to get O2 to accumulate on the leaves, you need a high photosynthesis rate (meaning good light and more important good CO2), and you need to have the water column saturated with O2 (or it just dissolves away). so good aeration, and good flow.

You shouldn't worry if your plants aren't pearling. It's not necessarily an indication of healthy plant growth. It could be from the accumulation of CO2 bubbles floating around or from a water change....or from oxygen saturation.
