Eheim question....

I just switched out one of my Renas on a 50 to an Eheim 2217. I have tried drilling out the holes on the spray bar to dampen the current on the outflow, but it is still more than I would like.

That ball is probably composed of a bunch of rhizomes. Gently open it up and you should see it. You can try and manually separate some, it shouldn't be hard, I've done this lots of times. As far...

You also needs lots more plants. I don't know how plant friendly your rhom is, but a little Blyxa, moss and 3 swords just won't cut it, especially at start up. That's a big tank and I can...

Hey Steve, tank's looking good. :thumbsup: Was it the maracyn that finally beat the algae back for you? Or a combination of things?

Periodic, low dosing is an interesting point, Steve. I need to think whether I would be willing to do that or not. I tend to be more of a 'purist', and if I don't have to add it, I don't want to,...

Good luck in college. You could always set up a small nano type with locally caught minnows, so you could always release them during breaks.
