For a while I've been thinking of a way to raise my lights a bit. I have two of the 36inch odysseas over a 45G. My best idea so far was to use a shelf mounting set-up and rest the lights on some 16...

45G Tank (36 X 13 X 24)
2 - 36inch Odyssea 2 bulb T5HO sets. 78W per set. My understanding is that these use an inferior ballast/reflector and thus behave more like T5NO with regards to light...

It probably adds a negligible amount of time to your process and gives you peace of mind.

The 6011A is 24V DC, 4W.

To power it I found, also on ebay, an AC adapter that outputs 24V DC and 400mA. I...

I got that exact adapter and haven't had any issues. I went with PB cylinders because the price per oz. on CO2 refills was cheaper that way. $20+ for a 5lb swap versus $3.75 for a 20oz refill....

I run a 2215 on my 45G. I have fish that prefer less current so I really didn't want to go with the bigger better approach. I find that with my current plant level and having a CO2 reactor and a...

The non compression side of the elbow I'm sure is correct as I had no problem getting it attached to the needle valve via the coupling.
