The eheim 2213 is also a very popular choice for these tanks. Many also make a custom spray bar to go across the back of the tank so the water flows towards the front.

I don't think so. The tetras hide a lot. They're really boring honestly. The CPDs are great though, very active and curious.

Yeah, if you don't want to use PWM, just connect the relay to the digital pins on the Arduino. It would need a separate 12v power connection though. But, maybe I could add a 12v power out?

I've considered those before, but my main hesitation is corrosion from leaving it the tank 24/7. Who knows what kind of stuff that will leak into the tank. Or who knows, it might be perfectly fine.

Yep, pretty much. There's a fair amount of room for expandability with he i2c area and the digital input headers. That's a great place to plug in some temperature sensors, for example.
