Surprisingly, there's no heat problems. But the top of my canopy does get a bit warm if the light is on for a few hours, I figured I'd just install an computer fan I've got lying about to cool it.

Stick in a small 24w heater in the external filter? It's the most elegant solution I can think of at the moment.

Oh, does anyone know if the Eheim Ecco comes with a spray bar outlet?

Are they worth having as part of an emergency kit if say you accidently overdose CO2 and need something in addition to an extra aerator?
