Just got notice today that mine's on it's way! I'm so excited! I ordered on the 3rd. I have 19" high tank and I'm hoping it won't be too much light where I'll need co2. I want about medium light.

Thanks for the update! I'm glad to hear it's working out for you. My 35 gal is ~17" tall from substrate so I think one of these would work out well in there. :) Excited to get one!
