Thank you for the kind words. Now I'm going to have a look at your 29! I like drawing inspiration from other tanks :). Thanks for the suggestion. I'll probably wait and see how it looks once things...

Yeah - that's the hardest part. I'm planning on waiting about 2 weeks before the first pruning. Hopefully that will give things some time to get acclimated and some rooting done before trimming. I am...

Ha - that's exactly what I was thinking. I didn't want to give algae a chance. Many of the videos of Amano and others show much denser initial planting than what I was used to, and I thought maybe...

I have a 2217 running in my 29g, and I find that if I just do not use the spray bar and run the open nozzle a little towards the front glass I get plenty of flow. In fact I have to throttle it down...

Thanks! Sometimes I'm not sure if it was a good idea or not, as it limits my flexibility (i.e. suction cups don't stick) with equipment placement. But overall, it definitely lends a more "natural"...

Thanks!
