I really like the Hydors and Eheim Classics, but would possibly look into something bigger than a 2217. Maybe a 2175 would be better.

As far as the CO2 system, I like GLA's stuff but would much rather build my own dual-stage regulator for less than what they offer for that system. I have used the in-line diffusers and they work great, but believe you would be happier with a reactor. You would have much less bubbles all over the tank and likely use less CO2 for the same effect.

Its really not a matter of money Im worried about, just dont want to run in to any problems (hopefully) What do you think about Sunsun for the filter, a regular tube heater that goes into the tank, and Im not really much of a DIY person, is there anybody here that could sell me a custom made CO2 regulator?
