I can't get a container locally, and I'm in Columbus, Ohio where the headquarters for Scotts is. I'm interested to hear if someone has found an equivalent alternative too.

Haha. :icon_lol: You might. When I was first setting up my co2, there were a couple of times that I had to scramble to get my air pump going. If I hadn't been paying attention, I might have gassed...

haha. Yes, it is a lot. I will have to defer to the diy guys on this one. I'm just going from what I remember of my research of it.

I don't have much experience with diy/yeast co2, but from what I have seen, I think that 2 x 2L bottles is not enough for a 75. I think I remember seeing one 2L per 10g as a rule of thumb. You...

Without a picture of your setup, I'm just guessing to a certain extent, but you will plumb both overflow boxes into the wet/dry portion of your filter. You might be able to plumb both into a single...

If you don't use a reactor inline with return pump and feed the co2 into the return pump, that should generate a mist in your tank. You can then mess around with the placement of your powerheads in...

I did have my lights come on from 9a to 12p, and then from 5p to 10p, but I was having algae issues. I switched to just having them on from 5p to 10p, and everything is doing much better since then....

I had a similar issue. I used a brass swagelok check valve, and some water got past it. Then I put a second check valve further up the line toward the tank, and I haven't had a problem since.

Thanks for taking the time to post the pics. I appreciate it.

I get pumped every time I see one, and I just need to start mine already. I'm sick of my current filtration.

Safeguarding the pump in a sump

I'm planning a sump, and a lot of resources caution you fill the sump only so much so that it can handle the overflow in case of a power outage.

I have also read that through design/layout of...

I'm planning a similar setup. If you get a minute and you don't mind, you should post a pic of your sump. Checking out other setups is helping me plan my own.

I don't know what your budget is, but for a 55 gallon you might want to explore pressurized co2. You are going to need at least 5 or 6 2liters to do the yeast thing. Between the cost of supplies...
