Out of all my trying to say ADA is worth the money, or at least has resale, I feel like the 180P is the most overpriced tank ever. I think most said they paid like 10,000 or so, I can find one (out...

Glad to hear another rimless tank company is around, and has vendors in the Bay Area. I love ADA/Do! Aqua but I feel more competition is in order. It's a bit strange that AFA carries them but it's...

It still looks a bit long, and not as curvy as the belem. However, I have never done it in a tank that small so it's hard to really get a sense of scale. Anyway, here is a good example of a carpet...

I haven't purchased it but I thought it was regular old DHG. Even at 1-1.5 inches, that is a bit bigger than belem would grow, it's more like 1/2 inch. It may be it, one way to tell is that each...

The 17.1 is basically a slightly shorter 20 high. Funny Marineland makes it only in a high as well. That gives like 3 different rimless tank sizes with that foot print (and more than 3 brands), but...

It should be fine. Most would say a 2213 or a 2215. I have the second and it works for me. A 2211 would be pretty small, plus, as you said, the lily pipes will be different sizes. In general, I...

Sorry, that's what I meant. That if you seal your containers, back siphoning won't drain the tank, sealing won't break the siphon either. That gives you a margin of safety if a check valve failed...

I would do DHG belem. The only difference really is that the Belem stays small and shouldn't need trimming, the only part about DHG that is a pain.

It will come back unless scraped off. The problem with moss is once it's in the tank, it's basically going to stay. Even if you get 99% off, that 1% will take a long time to get out. Crazy enough,...
