Nice room. I could waste a lot of time in there.
I think in another thread you had mentioned that you run 2 x13 w spiral fluorescent tubes on your 10 gallon tanks. I'd like your opinion as to whether this amount of light would work for a low tech set up (no CO2, no WC, perhaps weekly ferts). I see you are growing stargrass so that leads me to believe that your light may be leading towards medium, rather than low. But I could be wrong.

I have been following this thread and was really considering a linked system with multiple tanks so I am glad I saw now you have gone away from them. I think I will stick with single independent tanks but it was awesome seeing you try something new.
Thanks for always sharing and please keep updating. I am learning alot

|diwu13||Hm.. so you broke down the connected tanks ?|

Redid some of my tanks, downsized to make things more manageable.
20G SS/SSS CRS Tank. Sponge filter + HOB + HOB powered UGF on 50% of the tank, Netlea soil.
20G A-SS CRS/CBS/Golden/Snow Tank. Sponge filter + HOB + HOB powered UGF on 50% of the tank, Netlea soil.
20G Fire Red Tank. Sponge filter + HOB + HOB powered UGF on 50% of the tank, inert soil.
7.5G planted tank. Oto's, least killifish, cherry culls, few yellow shrimp. HOB filter, Netlea soil
20G Planted Platy Tank, Giant HOB filter, flourite gravel mixed with black sand
10G something tank. Some inert gravel, some netlea, it got mixed by accident, so I'm waiting to see where the pH settles and see if's suitable for a neo or card species. lol. HOB filter, sponge filter, snails.
Sorry for the blurry photos, crappy cellphone photos. I will borrow the good camera and get some better shots soon.

|diwu13||Ugh yea that's so cool how the UGF works well. I wish I set up a UGF on the 20L I just set up and hooked it up to the AC20's I'm using. Poop.|

|matti2uude||I like the new set up.|

Here's a bit better of a pic of the UGF connection. Working good. I mostly used the connections cause it's what I had. It's a AC 20 to PVC to Fluval Tubing to a API Sponge filter riser to the UGF plate, which I got for free, so it was done as a zero cost system but I like it now that it's done. lol.

|diwu13||THat's just an AC20? Wow. I guess my problem was I made the tubing thinner, whereas you used larger diameter tubing.|

The 3x10's only fit because I extended the top to go over the back, so that's why they won't fit, not deep enough. It's fine, the 20gal fits nicely in there. I'm going to put another HOB filter on it today and a sponge filter and let it sit for a while and good to go for my growing PFR's in their 10gal.

Weird.. aren't the dimensions the same? So it should've fit :O!
What kinda HOB is that? What size tank is it rated for. I'm surprised it has enough suction to draw from the UGF. When I extended the intake tube on a AC20 to ~2ft, it lost TONS of suction. Like, looking at the waterfall you could easily tell it was smaller than my other AC20's with short intakes.
