I was gonna trade in the SAEs when they hit 2-2.5inches for smaller ones. Their diet and aggression changes as they get larger too, but I like their usefulness when small.

Just pull out all the media and fill it with just substrat pro for the 2217. You'll like the results.

The only issue you might have is placing the intake pipe on the 60p since the 2217 intake is 17mm and the lily pipes tend to be longer for that size. With a 13mm ADA P-2, P-4 or P-6 outflow(much...

2213s are a waste on a 60p. I run 2x2215s w/2217 impellers on mine.

Is the following stocking list too much or can I add more?

I have a catalina 2x24w T5HO fixture with 6500k and 10000k bulbs that were supplied. I'm wanting to change to a GE Starcoat and a Giesemann Aquaflora. My worry is because I have an area with white...

The mini p2 doesn't have the same tip as the reg p2 so its not gonna have the same effect on dispersal of flow.

Get the ADA, the violet glass jet tip is pinched to increase pressure which just makes water flow harder directly across the tank. The ADA product will distribute flow better which I'm sure is what...

1 or 2 Eheim 2217s. I have 2x2215s with 2217 impellers on a 60p which is alittle shorter than a 20H. Lily pipes and any inline filters will drop flow considerably.

You would need 2x Eheims that have a 17mm in AND out. I think even 2x2217s still wouldn't be enough flow for that tank.

I've got 2x2215 (w/2217 impellers and stuffed with SubstratPro) on my 60P. I don't think its too much flow. Having lily pipes will definitely change the flow characteristics of the tank though and...

ADA lily pipe outflow 13mm p2,p4 and p6 differences?

What is the functional difference between the 3 when used on a 60p since they all use 13mm hose and the outflow opening is different on each? How can you visually tell between a P4 and P6?

If you run lily pipes on your 2215, you'll probably be rather disappointed at how many dead spots there are if you don't have an Iwagumi setup or unobstructed water column space.
