Oh, I saw pictures in another thread, I remember now, very similar to the 6th gen in certain ways. Dope.

Had no smell, I don't know when the bag ended up with my other ferts but the look was a bit off and it didn't dissolve as it should.

BTW, what are you driving these days, we were both on 6GA.

As said, you don't really need any sort of indicator if you be very careful and make small adjustments, and watch your fish (and plants). We all want something that can tell us that 30 PPM is there...

Well, I did like my inline diffuser when I got it, I just had issues over time. I would consider something similar to what Cal Aqua makes which is a ceramic disk inline (lower pressure) but the cost...

So...long time no update. This tank got very neglected from the start. The HC was growing really leggy but since it is so hard to trim, it never got a proper one. I finally trimmed it mostly how I...

You can just float them. I do it all the time, buy or get things I am unsure where they will go, float them until they have a place. I also like to keep them in a sink, learned that from fellow...

When I was HOB, I would always use two. Mainly because of flow, even if you have a good amount of flow with a properly sized HOB, you have little control of where it all goes when you just have one....

I was going to say the same. Aqueon and Marina both offer HOB's with pumps before the filter. I dry started mine all the time, never had an issue. Aquaclears work well but once they get a bit old,...

I am going to guess around 25lbs or more. The two largest stones probably weigh more than the rest. You could also do smaller stones in a 12 long no problem but I happen to like the look of larger...

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...

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...

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...
