Also just an update on the tank: I think I'll be giving up on this hydropiper stuff for now. I went away for a 3 day weekend and catastrophe hit the tank. My CO2 tubing came out from under the powerhead so during the whole time, there was no CO2 injection. My powerhead also came loose from one suction cup that was holding it upright. It turned on it's side causing a big mess on one side of my tank, substrate everywhere!

The worst part is all the hydropiper melted . Within 3 days... can you believe that? Oh well. Now to salvage what I can.

I've been reading the reviews. It looks like for 90% of the time the Mark II will do and it looks like they will be very affordable now. Me? I've got my eyes on a 7D. I'm going to wait for the price to drop on those too.

Sorry to hear that about your powerhead I decided on a Koralia Nano instead of that model after reading reviews.

What will you get to replace the hydropiper?

You don't need one of those bad boys to take great pictures. You can get more out of a cheap C note P&S camera than most people can out of $1k+ gear.

Really sorry to hear about your equipment mishaps. S*** happens

7D is a def winner. If you got cash, blow it on a 5DMK2 or 3, don't matter lol. I'd take both over my 60D. Just don't fall for those ugly Nikons LOL .

I'm happy with the IQ I get from my prosumer 60D. I just want to own a FF camera once in my life, that's all lol. There's no hurt in that, as long as you can afford one, right? I'm not quite there yet though.

Koralias are nice, but they don't chop up bubbles.

For the price of that Mk3 you could have a genuine ADA 180P

You've got a point my friend , then again if I had the funds for that sort of monumental item, I'll need to own a home first to put it in. First things first.

I'm never going to buy a MKIII... kids are too expensive.

The tank looks great, Nick! With or without the hydropiper. The angels would distract me away from the foreground anyways. (Oooh! Shiny!)

Thanks brother. Unfortunately, one of my Angels jumped ship over the weekend too . I've only got 6 left. I'm pretty sure it's because they eat so much that going without food for 2 days caused it to flip and jump ship. See what happens with fish turn into pigs... they think they can fly.

Guess it's time to put the safety net back on.
