    Money no Object – Space is

    To much flow, not enough etc, so I've read and re read and am going for Tetratec EX 1200 External Filter x 2 they will fit nicely in the cabinet and I will have space for the the External Heater and the inline CO2 Feed So now I've finally decided I'm still looking to have drilled as I have no...

    Money no Object – Space is

    Thanks for this, its godo to get the differing opinions. So ive looked at the TetraTec EX external filter - EX1200 which seems fine and I can see advantages to haveing two filters. So taking this futher rather than then connecting an external inlien heater I could simply get two filters with...

    Lighting I have found this: http://www.rocketaquatics.co.uk/classica-150w-double-metal-halide-pendant-with-moonlight-freshwater-p-1749.html Depending upon the width this seems ideal, does any member have one ? John B

    Money no Object – Space is

    Thanks for the help so far, im looking for hight tech so CO2 and lighting will be crucial. However as filtration etc will all depend on volume so im thinking 75cm Wide, and say 45 cm deep and 50 cms High - 37 Gallons (UK) OR 44 us OR 140 Ltrs so using 2.5wpg i need 140 watt (I think) as...
