I don't think the Tower 20 will fit US CGA CO2 tanks. It is designed for metric tanks.

Also the design of the Tower 20 is to have the metric tank inside with a small porthole for the ADA Speed Regulator (outside of tower). Not sure if a US reg would fit/be able to connect.

Maybe you could do a 2.5lb cylinder but that wouldn't solve the regulator problem and the way it connects. Unless you buy the ADA Speed Regulator from Frank with an adapter. Last I checked a tower 20 was close to $800-900 and the reg was $400-500 with the EL.

Yeah, I would have went complete ada co2 but.... I talked to frank earlier and they do have one used one but theres absolutely no way I will pay that for a co2 bottle and casing. Ridiculous imo. So, I will have a duplicate made to fit my 5lb and around regulator.

Changed it up huh, whats the plan for plants?

I'd do half tap and half ro. Thats what I do. Tap is ok. Just RO won't work, you would have to use equilibrium or something similar.

I'm curious to see where this goes.

Yeah, i'm going to keep the h. Pinnitafida and let it cover the entire rock and maybe let the top grow tall to water. Behind and along rock will be dhg and glosso for carpet

In order to use all RO you have to dose GH booster. Not sure if you use it in combination with equilibrium or not. If you have the option to go all RO I'd do it.
