Amazing tank, really like the jungle styles.

What lights are you running? I saw your spec list but I'm not familiar with those products. Also 3 canister filters? How's that working out?

How important is flow - for plants and fish?

Hi guys,

I have a 90P running an Eheim 2217 and an Eheim Skim350 (small powerhead). It's pretty strong because I'm using the nozzle, not the spraybar. But it's not the speed of the flow I'm...

I've been thinking about how to get rid of microbubbles. Amano seems to put his diffuser out of flow's way.

Using lily pipe intake as spraybar?
