    Hello, I just bought a used Juwel Rio 180 led, but I was disappointed when I opened the hood and saw the original Multilux panel was destroyed and there was some random led tubes with their own power supplies. So I can see that one is a 24w tube from the brand 'Diversa' LED expert 24W lighting...

    Water flow too is strong, I'm planning on getting a Krib pulcher in the future and they like a steady/low flow. I need the power head to benefit my plants but there isn't a built in way in the fan to adjust it. What can I do to make the flow softer?

  10. Fish
    I So my main question is suggestions for fish, but one of my main road blocks is that the reason that I have always owned goldfish and koi is because they have personalities and interact with people, a trait that from my understanding is lacking in many of the schooling fish who are more plant...

    I am setting up a tank (50 gallons or so). I have an Ehiem Professional 2 which will generate decent flow but I want to kick it up a notch.
