You may have felt limited by the small size of your tanks but I don't feel that they limited you at all. All the tanks you showed us are truly beautiful.

Oi Padupre! Como vai? Eu ache que ele esta muito lindo! Eu estou morando no Brasil para escola mas eu estou voltando proximo semana para o Estados Unidos.
Concordo que as coisas importadas sao muito caros aqui, mas eu acho que voce um grande trabalho! (e eu queria praticar meu Portugues kkkkk)

Running filters in series is a very common practice in Japan, started by Takashi Amano.
The idea is to have as much possible area for the bacteria to grow.
In japan, is very common to see a small tank with 16 liters of biological media on it.
So, first of all, the advantage to have 2 (or more) canister is: Maintenance. You can clean a filter per month and you still giving time for the bacteria to stabilize in the other canister.
Second of all, on a planted tank you want less water movement, so you don't mess with the plants co2 absorption, otherwise you could just put the 2 canisters running separately on the same tank (but 4 pipes inside a tank wouldn't loo too great on a ADA style tank).
Take a look at the link below, it´s from Eheim Japan...
If, like me, you don't understand anything at all (LOL), do a little google translating...
Hope it helps.

Your previous tanks look great. It looks like you're doing a good job of selecting "clean" looking equipment to look like ADA. Looks great!
What's the advantage to running the two filters in series? I've never seen that done.

I´ve seen a lot o people saying they got theirs from Pet Smart ...and at least online they do have it...I just checked it...

Ok, so we don't have ADA Stands down here in Brazil, so I'm gonna have to
get one made (as close as possible to the original stand).
This is what I'm gonna have for mine (all black).
But I still have to wait for the tank to get ready, so I can confirm the measures.
So now I look forward to hear what you guys think about my project.
Am I at the right track?

New Project - ADA Style Journal
Petsmart in the US don't have EHEIM canister filters.
Your nano tanks look so fantastic!!!

So yesterday I had some stuff to return to Cobasi (Pet Smart like) and with the credit I got an Eheim Ecco 2232 for R$ 510,00 (again, this is not the real price, Eheims are on sale).
I'm gonna run it in serie with my Ecco 2234. I always think that overfiltration is never a bad idea.
Here's how I set this up.
I put the 2232 on the inflow and the 2234 on the outflow.
I'm not sure how I´m gonna set the filtration order on these.
Should I put the blue sponge at the bottom of the 2232 then add a little
Eheim Substrate Pro and on the 2234 add the rest of the Substrate at the bottom and some activated carbon at the top (I'm gonna have carbon for at least 3 weeks)?
Finally I went to the ADA distributor and got a few hardscape items:
Any idea of what kind of rock are these? (it looks like Dragon Stone)
look all the mess...luckily that's my spare office...LOL
