I get a little BBA on my filter pieces also. It doesn't mean that you will get it all over your tank. Just scrape it off and suck it up with your water changes.

Flourish will not put back minerals. You would need something like Equalibrium or GH boost.

Adding DI is something if you have a really high TDS or maybe a high GH. I make about 80g a week and...

Do both consume the same amount of power? If the impellers are swappable is the induction the same? This is what drives the impeller to spin on the shaft.

There are calculators on the net that tell you how much effect coral will have on your kh as well as ph. It will drive your ph up just as the baking soda did. You do not need to add both if the...

If you take a pic of the entire setup we can tell what else is needed. Was this reg used for CO2 previously?

I would have thought the head and the impeller housing are different. The 2211 goes drastically different in size to a 2213, or at least I thought so. If it does then I would think the impeller...

I'm with you, but it seems some need to make things hard. I get the need if using a dosing pump, but if you are not why bother.

I think you are set for your tank connection. I know of no other connection that looks like that. You will need to get some seals for the connection.

Can you take a pic of the entire setup?

You need a CGA 320 and it looks like the regulator already has it. Why are you removing it?

Some run air wands at night to help gas off CO2 when the light is out since DIY systems run 24/7. I think you will see a sharp decline in the bubble rate very soon. I run pressurized CO2 on my 75g...

I agree. Also a little off to imply someone may have, want, or even suggest a dual stage because it means it relieves them of some usual responsibilities. If I want to get a Cadillac regulator...

Wow, I would think that 2-2217s would be more than sufficient for a 75g. You could always go for a single 2080.

Are you heavily stocked? Is there a reason you think you need carbon?

IMO, you have to open up your tank more. I used to get similar issues but they went away after I opened my top more. The surface movement is good, but for it to help cool it needs more air,...

I guess there is always risk when buying something used. Sometimes new ones can be had for not all that much more. But, for an extra $20 or so the risk is fairly light, referring to the info above....
