Good luck in this year's contest! Would be nice to see an American do well in the rankings. Have you ever entered before?

Love the Kulhi, but unless you want floating HC don't add them to this setup.

BTW AS is just short for AquaSoil.

Looks real good!

Scale makes it look much bigger than a 60. What kind of light do you have. If you have AS in there, then the ferts shouldn't be a problem. Hardest part will be dialing in the...

No its not like hair grass. When it grows to high you need to take it out and replant smaller ones which are usually in and around the larger one. Rember it's a stem plant so cutting the leave...

If you have a big tank with a canister and you already have green water do yourself a huge favor and just get the UV. You could probably find one less expensive than the one I linked. There is no...

I didn't read the whole journal is that PFS? With that I just dump it in the garden and add new stuff since it's so inexpensive.

Are you against a UV? Did I miss something? That's a lot of work and it might not even be effective long-term. Add a UV inline and you don't have to change a thing.

Looks good!

Well at least the sand is easy to clean. You could just suck it up with a hose and put some fresh stuff down.

I'm actually running a 3.5 G Betta setup with no filter. I had a small HOB on there, but the Betta did not like the flow. For a Betta and some shrimp you could probably do the same. Just change...

Yep, no worries just trying to help. You started making these references to Pentax about zero working distance, but in reality this is a canon rebel system so 1" to me seems very extreme. The OP...

Well we know she's not using a Pentax. I have a 60D so if she's using the t3 kit lens more than likely it's between 10"-12" I really doubt if a set of $14 filters is going to let her focus at 1",...

That's the problem right there. I don't think the macro filter allows you to shoot that close. I don't see anything in focus. Try moving away more and then cropping.

PFS usually isn't that bright, but I guess that's relative. It will also get slightly darker after being in the tank for a while like any other light substrate. It's still one of the best sand to...

The atomizer works well too, but again if you have an HOB... The disc is pretty minimal plus it's usually glass like the lily pipes so I've never really minded it, but it's a personal preference.

As pointed out by greaser84 the OP doesn't even have the plumbing for a reactor so it would be kinda silly to me to set up the plumbing when you could just buy a $15-$20 disc to do the job. BTW when...

Gas is cheap, just because some is wasted doesn't mean a disc isn't 'better' for a particular setup. I've had a rhinox ceramic diffuser with an Eheim 2215 on a 4 footer for over four years. The...

Wouldn't that be the case for any company advertising any method? Bottom line is it the diffuser works in a large setup. What they couldn't sell reactors or inline diffusers if they wanted to.
