Just ordered a SunSun HW-302 Canister filter, the Aquaclear was not cutting it with the water level so low. I really hope it runs okay on the same level as the tank..

Planters and plants ordered today also. So now it is time to play the waiting game.

In the meantime here is a photo of the 20 long's Riparium's SW cousin a few feet away in the living room.
