Thanks somewhatshocked for the help.
Got tank, filter, light, and etc this morning. Now I'm looking at plants to put into it. Moving my snails from my little containers into this tank. Only snails. No shrimp.

Nah, the AC20 isn't too strong. As I've mentioned, there are quite a few ways to slow things down. Feel free to check out just about any journal I've got going.
Azoo Palm is fine - I use a couple - but they're $10-$12 for extremely brittle plastic with very little room for media. AC20 usually starts at about $18-$20. Way more bang for your buck.

I use the Azoo Palm on all my 2G and 3G tanks. I have the "rudder" 90° to the flow to slow the filter down.
The AC20 that came with my Fluval Edge is super strong, even with intake pre-filter sponge and additional internal sponge. The filter blew a divot in the substrate even tuned down.
I think an AC20 might be too strong for a 2G cube but my experiences are limited.

If it were me, I'd get an AC20, turn the flow all the way down, stuff it full and use a pre-filter sponge to further slow things down.
Best bang for your buck and it'll last you longer than the tank.

I would like your opinion.
I'm going to buy one of the 2g tanks and I was wondering what kind of filter I should get. I see that Aquatop has some filters that are on clearance, but can't find anyone on here who uses them. I see mentions of Azoo Palm, Deeo Blue nano, and some others for tanks this small.
I was thinking of getting an AC20 or AC30 with an AC20 impeller or should I go for a nano filter? I wouldn't want to get an AC if it's too strong of flow.

I just told you that's where to buy them. The low-iron tanks = AquaTop.
|11-16-2013 12:35 AM|
I'll just check back later I guess.

|somewhatshocked||If you read through the journal, you'll see links directly to AquaTop. You can buy them direct from their website: truaqua.com|

|AquaAurora||Where did you buy your AquaTop cubes? A local store or someplace online? I ask as I can't find anywhere online that sells the cube.|

Get back in there Jake!
I'm following your example, staring up 3 of the 4G cubes shortly.
|11-11-2013 03:39 PM|
The move zapped me of time and energy but it's getting close!

|I3raven||Man, I haven't caught up with your updates in while. I like your choices for the plants, especially marsilea minuta. I'm not sure if you specified this, but when do you think the planting process is going to begin?|

If you take a look through the journal, I'm using the Fugeray fixture on a 25cm cube and am not a fan of the visible coloration. I have to "doctor" it up with some supplemental LEDs.
Am using the Wave Point fixtures on 20cm cubes and they are not washed out at all. They come in different strengths and colors, as well.
|11-09-2013 03:24 PM|
do you find that the wavepoint has the washed out look you thought of with the finnex ray? i had the ray also and was not impressed with the lack of...vibrance from the led. i don't know if that's the correct assumption to have from those lights or not.
