A couple of my rasboras had this a while back. Pretty sure it was some sort of parasite. It was harmless and disappeared after a couple weeks.

My Oto's fight shrimp off of Jake's Complete Veggie. They're like little catfish crack cookies, and they all come running when that stuff hits the water. Give it a try if all else fails.

Make sure the grey plastic piece that covers the impeller is pushed all the way down into place. I believe that's the piece that the basket locks into. You should feel the basket click into place as...

You're going to have to scale the flow back, or it'll wind up ripping plants out of the substrate. You'll have some really tired fish too. A 2217 at full bore will be 20+ turnover rate, which is too...

Capillary action doesn't have a whole lot to do with it. It's still a matter of system pressure. What you're really fighting is "head". The water from your filter makes it into the tank because the...

Air will always find it's way up and out. Air weighs nothing compared to water, so the incoming water doesn't have to do anything to push it out. The best way to get air out of a canister is to leave...

Don't forget that the water running through the reactor is somewhat under pressure. If it's got enough force to move water back up to the top of the tank through a 1/2" hose, it's probably got enough...

Best way to get these filters running again is to empty it completely and start over. With the canister empty or water and all taps closed, the intake should be connected and output disconnected....

I don't think i've ever noticed a single leaf growing new roots, but if you have a few good plants, that's all you need. In the right conditions, this stuff explodes and you'll be tossing some out in...

Frogbit is a fast growing plant, and seems to do best when there's plenty of ferts in the water. My 20 and 50 gals are set up pretty much exactly the same. I keep ferts at a minimum in the 20, and...

Fugeray on a 20L is quite a bit of light. I moved from a single bulb t5no on mine to a fugeray, and now I'm fighting thread algae. You may want to suspend or shade that light, at least until things...

I had something like this growing in my flame moss too. I removed most of it by hand, and then the baby trumpet snails moved in. They spent a few weeks covering the moss in packs, then moved on. Very...

Pretty sure the Aquarium of the Pacific has a single freshwater riparium display with CRS in it. As long as you keep the water parameters in line, I don't see any reason why it would fail.

Have you looked into an inline diffuser/reactor instead? I use an Ista Max Mix reactor to inject the CO2 straight into the filter's water stream. No bubbles ever reach the outlet of the filter...

The only issue i could see is plugs eventually falling out if they're plugged in completely vertically. Why not attach a piece of plywood or 2x4 on the back side of the stand to give it a mount?
