Wow that looks fantastic!!! Very professional! I have a Q. On the output valve apart of the filter how did you make it point up? I tried on mine and it is almost has if it is stuck in the sideways position. I am afraid I will break it so I didn't force it.

Hi,

the plants have arrived. They look healthy.
Now I'm waiting for ADA Amazonia. It will take only few days.

I know what you mean. You have to start threading at a different position to get it straight up when it is fully screwed on. Just try screwing it on starting at different positions. Hope that makes sense...
