I agree, I never use carbon anymore. I'm cheap and lazy, and carbon is a consumable item. I have to buy fish food, I don't have to buy carbon - makes my fish hobby cheaper.

I've heard good things about Finnex LED lights, never used one myself though. I suspect a Eheim 2211 will be the go to filter choice? Again, don't have one myself.

Most of the PSU's on digikey are a 120VAC (typical wall power) input, so no problem.

Digikey.com

8$ shipping, just look up a ad to dc wall adapter on their website. They have pretty much every power output you could possibly ever want.

I tried ADA, and I don't personally believe it is worth it. I like the colour, and the uniform roundness, but I don't like how it breaks apart easily into powder.
