This might be a dumb question, but is it very hard to turn the on/off on and off? I can't quite screw the valve closed (on) and thus nothing is happening. I've got the 20oz tank from Amazon and the...

I'm guessing that is because they are willing to sell males only. My LFS charges $15/pair (or sometimes a trio.) It's about the same, IIRC for threadfin rainbows too.

Thanks! It's been a long time since I took a look at the planted trends, so I was kind of winging it on design. I had that big piece of driftwood in the garage from breaking down a goldfish tank last...

LOVE the lace rock, it's extremely porous and dimensional. And it's lightweight enough to create some decent stacking options, but heavy enough to be stable.

They also make plastic rounds for desks with cord drill-thru. They have about a 2" ID and a flange. One for each side + PVC or venting hose to bridge the gap.
