Default The 75g begins..

Well it will begin soon... lol so i plan on compleatly revamping my 75g planted aquarium. So far iv collected a small stash of supplies for when im ready to do it.
40lbs Seachem Florite
40lbs Eco-compleate black
Coralife 4x54w T5HO fixt
2x Geismann Aquaflora T5HO bulbs
2x Geismann Mid-day T5HO bulbs
aquatic forceps
trimming scissors
"cleaning claw" attachment for the siphon hose
CO2 drop checker
2x Aqueon quiet flow 55/75 filters

heres a pic of the new lights:


still to come..

co2 system
various sp. or plants (to be decided)
fert test kits
maybe some dry ferts

so my big questions are pretty much:
Is the "all in one" regulator, solenoid, needle valve here by aquatek-california
http://aquatek-california.com/co2-re...lenoid/#r-76-1

is going to be worth it and my main concern is how to prevent co2 dump near the end of the tank.

also as far as "reactors" go how does a small pump with a "reaction chamber" fair against the h.o.t. versions with bio balls ect.. for example this one from DRS F+S

thanks for all the help and any info/exp is most appreciated!!
75g planted coming soon
