And the mp40's just barely hang onto the 3/4" glass tanks, I add a little extra sticky to the glass to keep them from falling off.

Not as bad as the mp10's on 1/2" glass though.
Ahhhhhh...now it all makes sense now. Well that tidbit certainly helped me make my decision. Thanks for the input.

I was able t get the MP10's to work fine on this tank. I sort of hung it by the cord but it worked well. When you turn the MP 10's up all the way they are very loud. It's pretty much the only noise my tank makes. There was not enough flow by time I turned it down to a comfortable level. I thought two MP40' was overkill. One does the job well. I can get the tank rocking with it. Like making waves

It could be the MOHs scale, scale of mineral hardness. I think manufacturers have the needed chemical composition of the glass somewhere for sure though.

Lileoposis might be another option over the C parva.
Or buy more C parva and stuff it in there.

The Parva grows nice and slow for me. It has tripled in size in a year.

Low maintenance is key for me right now. I had originally put in Dwarf Hair Grass. That grew like a weed which required too much attention for me. The HC grew too fast as well. I'm pretty fond of the mosses now.

So I was having problems with my G6's. They would only run at half their flow. I cleaned them throully and still low flow. So I swapped them out for two FX6's. Needless to say I have great flow now. Between the MP40 and the two FX6's this tank is rocking. I think the higher flow is better for the mosses. I also add carbon for the first time. One thing that sucks is I had two inline heaters that I can't use because the FX6's tubing is too big. I think I'm going to make a inline chamber out of PVC and install a heater into that.
