I disagree from my experience. My 2215 has not been trouble free but my 2234 has been. I already stated earlier what I like about the 2234 or Ecco series over the classic series but my 2215 has had...

I would run something larger than a 2215. It will work but it will be lower flow than what most of us like. I have run more than a few tanks without substantial flow and it was fine, but I find...

It will be fine. It does fine in Flourite Black Sand on tank I have fertilized in over a year and the substrate is going on maybe 6 years. It's not really a demanding plant, it needs a lot of CO2...

I have gone well upwards of 6 inches with slopes and had no issues. However, when using soil, totally different story, if I had 1.5 inches of soil and a 1/2in-1in cap, nothing but issues. I really...

It's hard to say how well it will work, you probably don't need any blue at all, since you already have cool whites (warm whites is what we want). You may then up the reds and possibly violets,...

I do not. However, I am pretty good at getting almost 100% of the air out of a bag. Right now it's in a 55 gallon trash bag and I am sure I could get almost 100% of the air out. Just will take...

Storing used Aqua Soil for some period of time...wet? dry?

I am in the process of trying to buy a new home in a hyper competitive market. Because I have to sell my home, I have decided to tear down all my tanks but one.

I am using AS and I would like...

This is true. It can look pretty bad as well. I tried to cap some red Flourite using sand and it all ended up at the bottom, just making it look mostly the same, just dirtier. I didn't not like it...

I use RODI water off and on. I don't have the equipment, I buy it at the LFS. One big reason I started to use it is someone I trust suggested the simple fact that you basically take out any...

Any reason you need it to be the exact same size? The only reason I ask is I feel that 45cm/18in gives more lighting options, or at least lighting that will fit the tank perfectly. There are plenty...

That is one thing to consider as well. Even though a CO2 regulator should last basically forever, especially on an aquarium, it is hard to compare both a DIY product, and a used product, to...

I would also be concerned about super glue but like you said, why not test it. I think individual "branches" would be fair easier and still can be pleasing, plus it's much easier for maintenance. ...

My friend just bought a 120 with a nice stand for around $1200 or so at our LFS. It could have been more, I don't really recall. Obviously Craigslist is much cheaper but he was able to match the...

I can tell you one thing for certain, if you don't like the color of your substrate, you probably never will. That alone is reason enough to replace it for me, which I have done myself.

I like the stuff quite a bit. One word of warning though, do not use this with a magnetic cleaner, it will stick to it and scratch your tank.

All my tanks but one are torn down. Here is my last setup, with just the basics, then with everything. Was pretty cramped at the end.
