Yeah, I've been thinking of getting LED's for my tank as well. They look great on yours. Are you using LED's all your lighting?

more equipment, yay! my 2 10g tanks had been running without heaters and i know that my crs will never breed in 64F temp so i broke down and got some hydors. hopefully they aren't too much heater for these tanks. I also made some reactors since i am PISSED OFF AT CERAMIC DIFFUSERS!!! i seriously broke like 4 of them already. and that last piece of equipment is just a modified contraption to make my wc's easier.


$70 for both of those hydors shipped, not too shabby

oh and those 1/2"x1/2" barbs were like $0.34 online which i could not find anywhere else! total for both reactors was about $17

I'm actually making some out of acrylic and I need people to try a couple out for me. If you give me some sizes tubing that you would need, I could probably make some.

Here's the link to my DIY thread -

Great thread... but due for an update

The 10 gallon tank on the right (just a few posts above) looks awesome!

Here's hoping my wife will remain as supportive as yours... time will tell!

I would like your opinion, please, on the utility of the temperature control valve. I am considering incorporating one into the plumbing of my 125 gallon (plans in this thread). Is it worth it, in your opinion? I can always adjust the temperature by feel, but this valve looks like it might make things a lot more simplified. The L1170-M2 valve has a temperature range of 60 to 120 degrees.

Regards.
