I have a 5lb cylinder for CO2 and use an airstone which bubbles in the sump, right under the return pump. It's simple and effective. A counter flow reactor would be better and less micro bubbles but...

No ottos but they wouldnt do much for the filament type algae. THis is just a balance issue that is working itself out. A few shrimp would probably help though.

Thanks. The first month was a little rough. I rushed the mineralization and should have gone a bit longer. Extra water changes were necessary to get the ammonia/nitrate/organics down initially, but...

I'd consider a single A150W over my tank, to be asking for a lot. It's a pretty hefty footprint and about the largest I'd want to push that light. It is a solid medium-light intensity, and...

Phil, the Elos is (~30Wx22Dx20H). Early in the thread, you can see how high I had the pendent. I have since dropped it a couple inches. This basically dropped the primary cone of light completely to...

I use LEDs because I wanted a tiny fixture over a big open top. I've also used MH, T5 and PC and they all work just fine and dandy. LEDs are a bit trendy and more expensive up front (and cheaper...

Adding more Led light fixtures, in general, isn't about getting higher par, but rather evening out the hot spot with shadows. This more so with concentrated light fixtures like pendants. strip...

I have a good enough background this stuff to say yes I do say so. If you really wish, I can adress your post point by point, though it would be counter productive to this thread.

I use hornwart for a floater. Nothing really eats it, fast grower, excess snails seem to gravitate to it (easy to thin out the herd :P) and a nice fry habitat. When it gets too big, I just toss it...
