Also I don't want the intake pipe to be more than around 7" on the inside of the tank.
Check out the Cascade Glass Nano Inlet Pipe 17mm from
http://www.aquariumplantfood.co.uk/g...let-pipes.html

That's where I got mine.

get a matching set of "cal aqua lily pipes" from "green leaf" i'm using their nano pipes with my eheim 2213 and they work perfect. im almost gonna have to say these pipes were MADE for this tank. perfect length and dimensions.

Kayen Just started about 10 days ago.
Just came out from a 3 day blackout after a dance with BGA.



Light: Hagen GLO 39Wx1 T5HO @ 8 hours /day
Substrate: Stratum/Flourite Black Mix
Heater: Compact 50W heater - don't know the brand.
Filter: Filstar XP1 filter - will be replacing in a few days - this guy is too loud to be a bed room tank. Will be an API Nexx Filter with custom media setup and Cobalt EXT-inline pump soon.
CO2: 5lb pressured w/ Single-stage CO2art Regulator. Haven't hooked it up yet - will have it into filter intake when I have the pump in. Planning to have an atomizer located below the filter intake in the future. I have an inline atomizer, but I don't want to mess around with it.

Plants: Glosso, HC, water lettuce. Floaters will be removed after the carpet establishes itself, only there to outcompete the algae. Toying with the idea of replacing it all with Monte Carlo in summer.

webskipper No clamps on glass pipes.

Reply on the tight soft hose to seal itself on the pipe. Assemble wet.

Pour warm water in new hose so it will relax.

Sounds like you're fighting a losing battle. You might want to find a way to reduce down. For example what I did was take a smaller diameter vinyl tubing that fit my pipes and it fit inside of the larger vinyl tubing and then that provided the seal/buffer/reducer that I needed to get it to fit my pipes. Then hose clamp if not tight enough(not too tight )

talontsiawd Here is a pic I took just for this thread on my 12 long. I don't update my journal enough but all the info is there. "Exclusive Pic" for the 12 long club haha.

You can find the VIV mini glass pipes on Amazon.

webskipper I use:

2 of ADA Do!Aqua violet glass・mini (outflow) MP-1 10D mini pipes.
1 of ADA Do!Aqua violet glass・mini (inflow) mv-1 13d pipe.

Eheim 2213.

Eheim 2211 is perfect for one inflow and outflow.

I get a very even distribution of CO2 and no dead spots or eddies with 2 returns. Use a 1/2" y-pipe. 3/8" soft hose will stretch after heated in warmed water and a little ambition.

Lily Pipes for 12 Gallon long??

webskipper Picture perfect.

My favorite scissor is the wave.

Search around for a stainless steel set of scissors and tweezers.

Wave scissors may be sold individually.

What do you think of my dwarf baby tear carpet!!??

Once I move into a permanent place I will flood it .

Does anyone have any scissors to recommend getting? I need to trim them down.. And don't have any good aquascaping scissors. Thank you!
Wow, how did I miss your update? The HC is amazing even for 3 months! Make sure you dose CO2 well to keep it healthy when flooded otherwise you'll get unwanted algae :/
