The Eheim 2224 is a great filter. I've had two running for years without problems. I use them not only to filter but to inject CO2. Looking forward to seeing more of your project... IMO dump the spraybar. Simply use the intake and basic output pipes. They're very simple but are non-obtrusive.

I have a 5lb compressed CO2 bottle with an ADA CO2 system and diffuser. Thanks for the idea!

So today I hooked up my tank. Its not finish yet still have alot of planting to do, and the water looks a little fogged out so you cant see all the drift wood. Keeping the Aqua Soil and Bright Sand seperated was hard, becuase Aqua Soil loves to float and then sink into the bright sand. So I will be picking out Aqua soil for the next couple of days. I have many types of plants and moss, but I will name what type later on. Heres a few picture I took today.

Anyways I will change the position of the drift wood meeting in the middle a little bit so its not even, and one piece is more lower and toward the back.
