I would love to follow you on this as I am trying to understand what to do on mine. Do you have any equipment already that we could get a background on what you already have?
Good luck by the way..

My only suggestion is If you are using Co2 then you need to be careful as to not allow the water to be disturbed too much. Having the water drop over the bio balls is going to gas off what Co2 you might have put in.
