Thanks man,I appreciate it. Hopefully this tank will get lots of love lol.
Now that you mentioned it,I threw the filter on the tank,and took it to the kitchen and filled it up with water,and surprisingly enough,on the lowest setting,the filter doesnt even really agitate the surface. Now,on the highest flow,thats a different story. So that being said,I'm not worried about the filter being too much flow for zoa's,paly's or acans. Should hopefully be enough if I ever decide to toss a bridsnest frag in there. Idk,still throwing around the idea lol.
I've actually looked into the palm filter that you've mentioned and even though its fairly compact and efficent for its size,I don't really like it for some reason. I like the AC filters due to it being adjustable,so thats a plus. I can always find a sweet spot if the lowest isn't enough and the highest is too much,ya know ?
Do you have a thread,or pictures of you current build/tank ? Sounds interesting. I'd love to check it out mane.
I'm glad this is back up. I was following what Nanofreak was doing with it.
It is looking good so far. I'm wondering if that AC20 will be too much even when throttled back. Are you putting anything over the intake? I've got only a few small zoa plugs right now, but they seem fine with no flow. I blast them off with a transfer pipette once or twice a week, usually just before a water change. I don't think you'll need to have crazy flow, but I'm fairly new to all of this. Deep blue makes a small filter that wouldn't be as obtrusive (I think it used to be the Azoo Palm filter). It doesn't have the volume of the AC20 though. But it is cheap enough that you could modify it and not worry about it.
Sould be done with the modifications on my second one (1/2 gallon version) so I can transfer everything over. I broke the bottom glass on my same level sump that I am building (it it still a sump?), so I'll be finishing that up later this week or next week. I actually have it drilled for an overflow, with a backup drain and some 1/4" lockline for the return.
Happy wife happy life.....or girlfriend.
AMEN !!! I've learned,the happier they are,the better off you are lol.
On another note,I'm honestly about to throw my light/controller out into traffic... It's literally given me a headache effing with this damn thing.. I've been trying to trouble shoot it with thatguytom and absolutely nothing. Only the custom % works and nothing else..
