That's a large tank: plant plants in pottery pots and cover with stones. You can make a pretty stunning scape with that.

What about co2... Will that one T8 be enough to justify Co2?
I just thought of something.... If I split my co2 line and use inline miniature ball valves... Would that work to get co2 to a diffuser placed in the mbuna tank? I could just go by my co2 indicators to determine ball valve adjustments... Then I wouldn't have to utilize my manifold.
