That's pretty cool. Probably what the OP needs and I could probably use these on one of my tanks. Though not as attractive on an open top rimless, I like the fact you don't need to take the whole...

I think the spin won't push enough to the side on anything but a nano and if you have tall stems, it might just blow the close ones around.

As for the DIY option, plenty have made some really...

I understand. I wasn't trying to make an issue but the point is, two needle valves are the way to go. Using several Tee's is really the same as a manifold, I think a solenoid is a great idea but...

Remember that ADA Aqua Soil is sold by volume, not by weight. Looking online, it seems a bag of ADA Aqua Soil is around 17lbs. A 9L bag is not the same size as most other substrates, it is quite a...

The only concern I would have with this is damaging the impeller. I would imagine you would damage the plastic shaft before it ever damaged the impeller but impellers are very expensive for what...

GLA's setup is the exact same thing, the only safe way to do it is using a second needle valve, plain and simple. Bubble counter is optional. You even add extra solenoids if you want things going...

Quick disconnects help but only if you don't have anything else inline. At one point, I had an inline heater, a UV, and an inline diffuser so though it made life easier than not having any, I still...

Not to my knowledge, they are all straight. That said, you can get plastic elbows from the hardware store that have a 90 degree bend. That may reduce flow a bit because it is a very hard bend. On...

Well, it really just blew everything around for a second and I stopped it. It's easy to accidentally reverse the outflow/intake on an Ehiem Ecco so I just changed it back. On that tank, the flow...

I am assuming you are asking about the 125 gallon, not your dream tank. Reason being, most very large tanks I have seen are Acrylic but I don't really know how large they were.

I have only...

It will definitely shoot out water like holes. I only know because I have hooked my filter up backwards with lilies. Obviously, how much depends on how much flow your filter has but it's not all...

They are designed to go on the side of the tank and push the length of the tank. That said, I wouldn't really consider these for function alone, I really don't think they really work any better,...

Thank you for the complements on rock placement. I know I am far from the best but I feel I get better every time. Plus, I just don't do expensive stones so that complicates things, even though I...

OK, I am probably going to stick with HC but I am thinking of using some Belem instead. That was my original plan but I couldn't find any, until about 2 days before I filled the tank. I did my...

Looks great so far. 29 gallon tanks are really hard to scape, IMO, and this is very well done so far.

I would put it before to make sure that any gas bubbles don't burn out the element. I doubt a small amount of CO2 bubbles will matter like you would have with a diffuser but a larger bubble might...

I used to really like my inline GLA diffuser. However, I have reconsidered that. First, it's so much harder to chase down leaks because you get very little visual perspective of what is going on. ...

Matt's 12 Gallon Long Iwagumi

Some of you may have saw a bit of a sneak preview of this in my 60P journal. I don't know if it's truly Iwagumi or not but I am going to call it that. I did a dry start about 4 months ago. I was...
