Med, I'd like to get up with you about a regulator but your private message box is full. :(

The setup looks very promising. Definitely a system I'll be keeping an eye on.

If sponge is a concern, you can get a coarse SS mesh prefilter. A couple of people on here sell them or you can look around online.

The spin has the benefit of not blowing stems around if it's a heavily stemmed Mini tank. Using something like an Eheim 2211, the straight flow pipe might do some pretty good stem blasting if it's...

Agree with the above folks. Even on a Mini M, a 2211 is more than enough filtration. It will actually blow substrate around unless dialed back in the early stages.

There is nothing in the ADA line (or any line, for that matter) that is a "must" to have a successful tank. You could have just aquasoil or you could have soil topped with sand. Both tanks have the...

No issues with my Nexus 5 so far and love the phone. Stock Android is quite nice. I'm not sure if AT&T sells the phones or if you can only get them through the Play store, though.

It's just a protein film that builds up on the water surface. You can alleviate it with a skimmer or surface agitation.

Pool filter sand (silica sand) will be lighter than play sand and also less fine and messy. Much less messy. Less compaction as well.
