Two Eheim 2217's. The most versatile canister filter out there, IMHO.

Look into a cerges reactor. There are many threads about it in this forum. Or a rex grigg reactor as mentioned.

Having a dual stage just means the delivery pressure is going to be very consistent throughout, even at the end. And they last forever. That said, I've had single stages that are really solid too,...

Before choosing which co2 system to buy, look at who supplies co2 in your area and how much it costs, usually fire extinguisher and welding supply companies refill co2 tanks, and they may only do a...

Reducing the light is always the best option to get control of algae. From there, as mentioned, you want to look at co2 and nutrients. I would also look into a cheaper option for ferts, like dry...

Nice setup! Your lighting seems a bit low, but regardless - injecting co2 benefits any setup. I would also begin to add some ferts if you are doing heavy water changes you‘re most likely removing...

I have one on a 60-H and it works fine, and I've added an inline reactor and diffuser so I added a small powerhead to help with the flow.

You can't beat a controller. I got a Ranco controller when I first got into discus, just because the fish are so expensive to replace, I didn't want to risk it. I figure, that plus some reliable...

Thanks, I found the hydrocotyle actually helps anchor the HC. HC has been nothing short of a real PITA to keep rooted even after doing a dry start.

I recommend you turn the working pressure to zero (closed fully) before hooking your regulator to your co2 and opening the pressure. Also, try venting the tank for a second or two before attaching...

Where did you get those pebbles? I'm not sure it's the algae that's glowing, seems like it's the pebbles themselves. http://www.coregravel.ca/core-glow/

I agree with others. I use 1/8" thick tool-drawer liners found in hardware stores that are not as obvious as a pink fluorescent yoga mat.

If you're using the same light you used for the dry start, then you probably don't need to bump it up. Maybe try bumping up the co2 first, then ferts slightly.

Most of them are cheaply made and don't last. They tend to burnout quickly due to overheating. Do a quick search on this site and you'll see other people's experiences.
