Hmmm. Seeing as how the thread was just posted only a couple of days ago, I'm going to have to wait some time before I'm convinced that the stock halogen lighting will do any good. But nonetheless, he did an awesome job of scaping that tank! It's almost as if that scape wouldn't even look right in a "normal" tank.

I definitely like these tanks, but for now, not with their stock lighting.

So how's the tank internal temp with the additional lighting dkbmxr? all kewl (no pun intended)...

Doesn't heat up the water at all!

I also replaced my marineland heater with a hydor 50w a few weeks ago and the temperature holds perfect. It doesn't fluctuate anymore than .5*F.

Right now I have my LED's on for 10hrs 12-10pm (timer) and have my CFL on for 7 hours turning off 30 mins before the LED's do (on a timer as well). It's pretty cool have somewhat of a transition plus it's nice to have the tank a bit dimmer when I get in bed.

How's your edge doing Cale?

Cale, I also meant to ask you how you have your co2 setup with the edge? Do the bubbles get trapped under the glass at all? I'm tempted to get together a diy co2 together and see how it works.

Thank you! I'm hoping it will only get better. My girlfriend got me this as an anniversary gift since I was telling her about how I use to be really into the hobby. Was thrown off a bit by the tank at first but now I love it.

you should invest in one!

I'm using a glass/ceramic diffuser @ about 1 bubble ever 2sec., the co2 comes through the diffuser in such a fine mist by the time it hits the water coming out of the spraybar it's almost completely absorbed into the water column...

Planning on adding co2 to the edge. Will putting a diffuser under the filter intake so that everything gets sucked up into a HOB get most of the co2 into the tank? Or does that only work with power filters? Thanks!

Default stocking suggestions for Edge

Hi-
How many celestial pearl danios could I fit into an Edge? I have too many in my 46 gallon.
Alternatively
How many white clouds could I fit? I have too many in my 20 gallon.
Alternatively again
How many harlequin rasboras could I fit? I have too many in my 10 gallon.
I'm getting a 60 gallon to put some of these guys in, but I love the look of the Edge and I have serious MTS!!!!
Just to be clear, I only want to put one kind of fish into the Edge......
Thanks! I love this thread

I figured at one point that would work; however, if the HOB sucks up the co2 it'll just release it through the surface inside the filter will it not? I think that works better with canister filters as it chops the bubbles into finer bubbles. Might i suggest ceramic diffuser? I have a 55 gallon tank with a powerhead that chops the co2 bubbles to fine bits; however, i feel like that will be too big for the edge...
