Make sure you push those deep into the substrate. I had problems with them pushing up to the surface when they softened up. I've heard of people using pieces of plastic containers to help hold...

That thing is awesome. I need to get one for myself. May wait for awhile though. Been turning over the idea of moving back to California. That takes priority over the tanks right now. May go back to...

My apologies, didn't see it in the pics you posted so I made an assumption. And I guess you know what they say about assuming. You make yourself look like the first three letters. ��

The reactor looks pretty good. The only thing missing is the down spout inside. The hole in the center of the cap should be just about right to take a piece of one inch pvc pipe. The pipe needs to...

I do have one more question. What is the best way to silicone the bottom. Side panels on top of the bottom plate, or on the outside edges?

The bio balls are not really needed. The cerges reactor relies on pressure more than anything. It keeps the co2 suspended in then chamber until it dissolves into the water column. The bio balls just...

Unless you can find nipples that will fit the tubing. If your canister filter has the ribbed tubing you will have to change it anyways. A soft vinyl is the best. Don't get the reinforced stuff, it's...

You can use 3/4 piping on all of it for the injector assembly. Mine was built with the one inch to slow down the flow a little bit. For the tubing, you may have to switch to another type of tubing..

I would like to do a black background but it's painted. I used this tank as a reef tank for a few years when I first got it. Didn't think about repainting the background when I went back to planted.
