Hi every one i have now ordered my aquarium an ADA 60F looking forward to it arriving,but not until end of month, i plan on buying heater and filter hopefully a inline hydor 200w but still not sure on filter maybe fluval 206 i still have a few questions about equipment, i am also getting a glo t5 light unit off a rob a member on here for price of delivery (very helpful and generous) so happy about that but here are a few other questions i have

1- do u think fluval 206 will be more than sufficent or a eheim ? also what lily pipes will fit and be a nice fit ? also will the hydor 200w heater fit the 206 pipes ?
2-i am planning a FE co2 system what exactly will i require (FE,regulator,will i need one way valves etc and what lilly pipes will fit wel ? dont want to spend a fortune on ADA pipes)
3-i still have some fluval flora statrum substrate so might just purchase another bag of that for aquarium
4-i plan on doing a iwagumi style aquarium so were is best place to purchase the rocks and what is the best sizes ?
5-i want a nice carpet what would you recomend ? this is nice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkQFfiW_aL4&hd=1 i like full aquariums so still not 100%

I think he fluval should be fine. Filter is all preference, peple is going to tell you which ever one they like is better.
I have a 305 and the 300w fit mine just fine cant say about the lower models.. Heres adapters and homedepot if needed.
Dont know anything abouy fe co2 setup.
As for carpets ug, dhg, hc theres plenty of nice carpet with the right conditions. Are you doing a dsm? Evilbay is a nice place for lily pipes.

Sorry not much help should be good until the real experts chime in
