As someone asked earlier, what about UG? Hasn't been specifically addressed, am curious since it's a different kind of foreground plant. Same mow method?

691175002, I agree. I figured that the 90 degree bends wouldn't actually be true 90 degree angles, but I'd rather be conservative in estimating the head.

Random, that's great information! Thanks a bunch- just the information I need. I'm pretty sure, this counts as a closed system such that vertical distance is not a factor. Open systems would be a...

Thumbs up Eheim 2213 and distance from tank?

I currently have a 7 gallon tank, and have been using an AC20 for filtration. While it does a decent job, I've noticed that the surface turbulence and fluctuating co2 levels are causing a...

Yeah just pmed him. It's not a clippard solenoid, as far as I can tell just by looking at it. Can you explain how you take apart those solenoids?

The root tab is probably a good idea, when I moved my crypt for the first time ever, the root system was over 8 inches long. By far the longest root system of any plants I have.
