You're not going to get any without seeding it somehow. You might as well get a strain that looks good.

Glad things are working out for you. Your scape looks good. I think I have to much rock after seeing yours.

I've withheld my critique of your scape, as requested. Now I see others commenting on it. Does this mean I am allowed to tell you now?

I fail to see how waiting will make me happier.

I think I may go ahead with the koralia wavemaker approach and see how I like it. That means I need to figure out how to use this Rio I have as a return. Haven't seen anyone else post about needing adapters to switch out pumps. Weird.

Scape looks like shit, IMO. 

 

 

 

I couldnt wait any longer. I feel better already. Waiting was the wrong thing to do.

For the Koralias: 425 or 565?

Being a 20, I'd say 565. I haven't looked at the koralias in a long time, though. Back in the old days, the 550's were about twice the size of the 425's. That's way too obtrusive in a 20. Especially considering you could get way more flow out of one jebao than 2 koralias.

All 3 koralias nano's are the same size.  If you go with Koralias I would get 2 of the 565.

I didn't know the new o es were the same size.

 

cal, you'll do what you want, IDGAF. However, $100 for 2 pumps and a controller vs. $70 for 1 pump with a controller that produces the same amount, or more flow.

Wait, did I miss something, what's the $70 option?

I already had the controller

It'll move water way better, and more randomized than your korallia's. guaranteed. But whatever, I guess a shitty scape should have shitty pumps.

I'm cheap. Just ask StevieT. He bought me with dinner, a few beers and some crap he sells to all you chumps. I let him run wild here for that pittance.

 

the problem for you is I'm not the official judge. Nor do any of you have a chance against adin. He gonna smoke you all like some premium Ganga.
