Thats about the way I feel right now. It has been about 8 months since I ordered everything for my planted tank, went all out. Yes we had a bit of a delay but here we go. I'll be posting some pictures soon.
Right now I'm working on the plumbing and the tanking is basically ready to go. I also got the RO system mounted near the well entry also, our water is hard and high ph so I'm thinking of doing a 50/50 fill with tap and RO to blend, then even it out.
Little torn right now on the Eheim G90 I purchased sometime ago due to the fact of the heads leaking on several of the G90's people have been talking about.
What about filtration turn over, so many opinions, 4 to 6, 10 is the magic number, etc.. Right now the G90 is about 277 GPH based on the manufactures guidelines, but with a UV > Heater > and CO2 + a 3 ft head, I'm worried the turnover rate will be on the non optimum side, I'll be lucky to get 2 to 3.
Currently thinking about adding another G90 or something else see and isolating the UV and CO2 on a separate leg, along with increasing turn over.
Any thought or criticisms are welcome.. I'll post the gear I'm using next also.
