Due to some mishanding on my part while taking down my 65g tank, I cracked the case on my Jebo. It was working just fine up until my gaffe, so I won't know how long it would have run. Never had any...

Mine's still running fine with no issues, so it made its 3rd birthday. My inline Hydor is another story. :(

Yoyo grew an order of magnitude faster than my angelicus, just my experience. My loaches are now in my 65, and they're happier. You're certainly right about a 20 being too small. My 20 is broken...

IIRC, you'd want a dwarf puffer. The other types are dangerous to other fish. I never kept one but I'm sure a search would turn up more specific information on the board.

You can't get rid of chlado by balancing or manipulating nutrients the way you handle other types of algae.

Zebras and angelicus have made pond and ramshorns extinct in my 20g tank. Highly recommended for this sort of duty-
actually they were too effective. I didn't want them to wipe the snails out.

But it's a BIG box. I finally threw away the oldest stuff over the summer and it filled a 10g bag. I'm a packrat. I admit it. :hihi:

OK, I'm pushing 130cm of head, and I get good flow in a 65g tank. Can't speak to the loss the extra 20cm represents.

My filter is set up that way. I'll try to remember to measure the head when I get home. I don't think it's quite 150cm, but will post back later.

CAEs can be somewhat aggressive and go for the slime coat on other tank denizens. Don't know if they ever really do much with the algae. SAEs get big and lazy and prefer whatever you're feeding the...

That's my only question. The probe looks really similar to the one on my digital thermometer. If it's submersible, I think this might be just what the dr. ordered.
