The outflow is too small to use the Hydor without adapters.

You'll need to use the Eheim 2213, it has 12/16 on both in and out, and Hydor sells the right size for that. I bought the wrong one by accident, waiting adapters -___-

I have the same tank and the stock lighting won't be nearly enough for what you are trying to grow, though I do have to admit, your Hairgrass is growing in nicely.

There are lots of solutions to that issue. Here's a link to the official Edge Thread:

Assassynation I recently bought a 2.5QT after the 5.5QT tank cracked when I was scraping glass. I used the filter from the edge to jump start the cycle process. I need the 2.5QT tank at 7.2ish ph, but the ph is the same as the edge. My question is will this seeded edge filter change the ph of the 2.5QT to the ph of the edge tank? 2.5QT is bare bottom with treated tap water ph 7.4

Assassynation I want to buy a small eheim canister filter and a ADA lily pipe spin for this tank. Any recommendations and what size lily pipe and eheim?

Assassynation Happy Easter everyone!

I bought this the other day. It's finally getting warmer and I will also be ordering shrimp this month!

I decided to not inject CO2 in this tank because I will be adding CRS in the spring.

I keep it pretty trimmed, now that I popped the top it's easier to trim. I will be adding a few more plants, I'm just waiting for the warmer weather.

And idk, I don't think its too bare. Stuff will still grow in and I like open spaces in small tanks, personally.
I will need a few open spaces for the CRS that will be going in there this spring.

bradlgt21 I have a edge, one of thoe old ones though and I converted to the plug in LED bulb. But even with the old halogen you can grow a good number of things directly below the light. Don't know if you like that aquascape look but your most demanding plant should be centered around the opening. I have Java fern and anubius petite on a rock in the center and its going great, around the tank randomly I have crypt Wendii and a Marimo ball. So I second the notion that the light isn't that great but you can do low light stuff with it and unless it is directly under the beam anything harder then low light will eventually die.
