Just found this thread, not sure how it slipped past me for this long. I definitely like the increased width of the tank. In my opinion, ADA tanks are a bit shallow and can make it difficult to fit...

I think mine took around 8 hours to reach the proper level. Took me three days or so to fine tune the rate. How large is your tank? I use a drop checker so I'm not familiar with the pH...
