I noticed you still have the glass tops and yet using the 2213. Did you have the glass tops cut out? I just started a fluval ebi and and I have a 2213 I want to use on it but was told the the glass tops can't be cut.

Yeah I took one of those glass cutting tools that they had in the art room o my school. You run it in a line then use a clamp tool to break it on the line. I just shortened the dimension by an inch on one side maybe

Yeah I can manage that. I'll have to take one tomorrow after school. I also had to reduce the spray bar length by about 4 inches. I didn't have any under cabinet space for the canister so fitting all the tubing behind the tank was a juggling act all in itself.

I also attached a canister to mine.

I did a Zoomed 501 to my Fluval Spec. It really keeps the tank looking nice.

Thanks for posting the picture... so the whole thing was shortened. I thought just a piece on both corners were taken out. But you did a pretty clean cut. Good job..

Yeah with the glass cutter I was using you could only go straight across. That's what I was trying to convey by saying that I reduced the dimension of one of the sides. The purpose of it was to make a groove to break the glass along. I was going to grind the edge down but I didn't had access to the one available to me at that time. I recommend trying it. You can most likely find a glass cutter locally at an arts and crafts store. If not most certainly online for cheap. Don't forget the special pliar tool either. Good luck and thanks for reviving the post!

Update! I've planted glosso in the tank because hc died off a little too much before addition of co2. I've also added 11 crs! Did a 50% ro water change to improve conditions for the crs.
