I don't see how it could be too much for any tank considering you can dim it. The bigger concern would be the narrow light spread at the top that would leave some dark areas unless you raised the...

Yup, the direction of temperature change doesn't matter such much as the rate of temperature change. As long as it is gradual, you'll be alright.

Nice tank! Finnex does make clip on lights - I have their planted+ clip on light and so far I'm pretty happy with it for my low-medium light plants. It's only $40 too.

Cool, thanks for the link. The interesting thing is that company has the same address as Marine Depot and even has a Marine Depot video of the light, so probably belongs to the same company. However,...

Cool tank, I'm also getting back into it after a few years away. Things seem mostly the same, except LED is all the rage now.

Don't want to derail the thread too badly, but with doing water changes that infrequently, wouldn't you be dealing with a buildup of TDS and whatever minerals that your plants don't remove? Do you...

In my Aquaclear 20 I have no problem fitting the sponge on the bottom, a 100 ml Purigen bag (the standard size bag of Purigen), and the biomax on top, so it shouldn't be a problem for you either.

Great info man, this is probably why I had a bunch of shrimp die off the first time I regenerated a bag using their acid buffer. I'll definitely keep this in mind next time I do a regen.
