What do you have for media in the tank?

Can you replace the pump, maybe? Put in a smaller pump, or one you can adjust the rate? I'm not very familiar with the tanks.

If it comes off that easy, try starting with 220 and see how it goes. That'll prevent you from creating grooves in the wood that the heavier paper will.

Are you going to be hand sanding the wood?

I'm not sure what the bark is like but, if it were me, I would start light and then figure it out from there. Start with 150 or 120 and see how it goes.

Wow. I thought I had a crazy over-filtered shrimp tank, but you sir have me beat.

On a 20L, I'm running an Eheim 2215 loaded w/ sponges, matrix and purigen. I also have 2 sponge filters as well.

I'm a huge fan of Carbon Rilis, Orange Rilis and the Bloody Marys that someone posted a thread about recently.

I really like TTs and Black tigers as well.

Thanks for the heads up on the Gravidas. I guess I'll use that sparingly, and very lightly when I do.

When I feed powdered foods to the tank, I usually dose with a toothpick. So, I try and go...
