Thanks for the reply...I am actually going to get the plexi-glass tonight at the hardware store and fix up my filter...! Time to finally see some pH adjustments from adding CO2 (I have never seen my pH go up or down when CO2 has been added, which mean the filter is dissipating it all). I'll check if they have the Jobe's sticks at the hardware store, otherwise I'll go somewhere else.
About the gravel, I used to vacuum my gravel (mostly because of the pleco waste) but found out most of it gets picked up if I get within 1 mm of it and don't touch the gravel. It creates a sort of vacuum and all the waste within a foot's radium is also sucked up, works great...
If the plants were human, and they knew what was coming, they wouldn't be able to sleep!
