Thanks for the replies. I use Flourish products in my 29G. Should I be dosing nitrogen or purchase some dry ferts?

That looks really nice. How do you like the Finnex Ray 2? I have a Finnex FugeRay 20 on Spec V and it is doing a surprisingly good job of keeping my plants healthy.

Regular petroleum jelly would be fine. If the o-ring has been in the open and not in sealed packaging, it may have dried out and could need replacing. I had a canister that was put away for a while...

Does anyone know where to purchase a Spec V pump? I found a place online that sells part no A-16452 and states that it's compatible with the Spec 1, 2 and 3 but doesn't mention the V. Is this the...

I'm using a Milwaukee MA 957 regulator and a SMS 122 pH controller. I've heard mixed reviews about the MA 957 but mine has been fine so far. You could use a timer instead of the pH controller. I just...

Sounds like a great build! I agree with Joey, though. You're better off skipping the Fluval CO2 and going with a 5lb tank and regulator/solenoid if you have the room. It seems expensive to start but...

Have you turned down the flow by using the lever near the bottom of the pump? If I recall correctly, from the factory, the lever is at the far left position for highest flow. By moving it to the...
