Thank you for the kind words Andrew. I get a little…ok, a lot, OCD when plumbing tanks. They're fun to build and adding all the bells and whistles is exciting, but it sucks in a way. I have no...

Burr,

What about a Nymphaea or Nymphoides in the front? Once you get them trained to stay low and are ruthless with trimming any leaves that make a break for the top, they make good foreground...

Hey there Freemananana,

You'll have to drill out the hole for the bulkhead to accommodate the larger diameter, but yes, you can do it if the bulkhead will fit. Is there a particular reason you want to go to 1"?

Thanks for the picture Simon. How's the water getting to the bioballs? Is it just dumping in there in one stream or is there something like a drip plate hidden behind the condensation?
