That's an absolutely terrific tank, willzy!

Do you have a tank journal setup so we may follow along?

Default Filter question

Ok these tanks made me jealous so I just order a tank.

I am looking for some filter advice for this size tank from you with experience.

I have a spare 2217, 404 and 305.

Think one of these would ok?

Thanks,
J.B.

2217 will work great! I have 2213 and it works great but could use more flow but i cant have any bigger filter or i wont fit under my ada style stand. My cabinet door barely closes flush

I'm not sure. Those filters look too powerful. You probably can use them if you have a CO2 reactor, in-line heater, or something else to decrease the flow.

I'm using a 2215 with cerges' reactor and I still decrease the flow a little. I usually use a jet style output or a spraybar shooting the long ways.

Use the 2217.

You could create a spraybar with really big output holes and potentially be fine by turning flow down a bit. Or, as another member mentioned, use a lilypipe or similar outflow on it.

I have a reactor attached to my 404 that is in my 30g right now. I am tearing down the 30g for this new tank. I don't like the looks for the spraybar across the back. The 2217 did come with a spraybar (8" ?). I wonder if that would be enough and it would be on one side only.

Guess I have some more thinking/planning to do.

I have my Mr Aqua 12 long on the way! Was wondering what you guys think about painting the back glass? I haven't noticed any on here painted but have seen them on Youtube painted and it looked pretty good. So what do y'all think?

You could always go to a hardware store in the windows section and get one of the frost or tint or other window films to put on the back of the tank. Most apply with RO water to help with placment and to help get the air bubbles out.

I thought of that too, I guess it'll bring back memories of when I was 16 doing my car. The problem with that is I sucked at it then and probably do now. LOL!
