I only like one filter, I get redundancy but it adds work or a higher level of detail to maintenance at the minimum. If you are like me, you may get lazy and be cleaning two filters in a short...

Amazing job. I love the 90P's dimensions over the 120P but you definitely pulled this off. I also love the fact you have a "machine room", makes the open stand feel very elegant which they usually...

I don't know what was up but I got chronic Cyano before I moved to my new place. One thing, don't spot treat it with H2O2 or Excel with HC. Don't get me wrong H2O2 is an effective treatment but both...

I used a 2224 on mine which had plenty of flow, which has less flow than a 2215 by just a bit. I think the 2213 would be fine, I may suggest a 2215 just for flexibility, especially if you are...

I disagree from my experience. My 2215 has not been trouble free but my 2234 has been. I already stated earlier what I like about the 2234 or Ecco series over the classic series but my 2215 has had...

I would run something larger than a 2215. It will work but it will be lower flow than what most of us like. I have run more than a few tanks without substantial flow and it was fine, but I find...

It will be fine. It does fine in Flourite Black Sand on tank I have fertilized in over a year and the substrate is going on maybe 6 years. It's not really a demanding plant, it needs a lot of CO2...

I have gone well upwards of 6 inches with slopes and had no issues. However, when using soil, totally different story, if I had 1.5 inches of soil and a 1/2in-1in cap, nothing but issues. I really...

It's hard to say how well it will work, you probably don't need any blue at all, since you already have cool whites (warm whites is what we want). You may then up the reds and possibly violets,...

This is true. It can look pretty bad as well. I tried to cap some red Flourite using sand and it all ended up at the bottom, just making it look mostly the same, just dirtier. I didn't not like it...

Any reason you need it to be the exact same size? The only reason I ask is I feel that 45cm/18in gives more lighting options, or at least lighting that will fit the tank perfectly. There are plenty...

I would also be concerned about super glue but like you said, why not test it. I think individual "branches" would be fair easier and still can be pleasing, plus it's much easier for maintenance. ...
