    so just few more plants and my Betta will swim in by the end of September
    not safe enough now as I would like to keep co2 for a while a bit over the levels

    also some lily pipes needs to be sorted I guess

    Hi Lauris

    How is this going now? I'm planning something very similar to this but lo tech., my tank is a 35cm(ish) cube and I've got a 2213 sitting in the shed but I thought the flow might be too much for a Betta?

    Cheers

    James

    Ok! Time for another update!

    plants doing well.
    2 weeks til Betta will be in. Decided to move my 2 yellow rasboras from another nano!
    I say I love them. Will add another 3 or 4. I hope Betta won't mind a little company.
    Have read on different forums they can get easy away with these, but that's more depends
    on particular Betta temperament. Will see how it will act, if needed I always can move yellow
    rasboras to to one of my other tanks. One Amano shrimp went along with few snails.
    So far solution to reduce current with 2 walves closed on 1/4th on intake forks fine.

    Seems to be my solution with 2 stop valves on intake resolved the problem.
    As I mentioned above, I closed bot of them for 1/4th and flow dropped to 1/2.
    So far the filter does not give any weirdo sounds or something. so you can try
    and it is easy enough way out with a great control of current.
    Tomorrow Betta will swim in. So will see what he will think about..

    collecting my Betta tomorrow!
    excited over the roof! like a little boy!


    I guess my wife she is right!

    Just a quick update. As I closed my Fuval nano project (takes too much time for me to maintain 3 nanos)
    moved to this one a bit of cuba carpet, monteCarlo and riccia fluitans (love this plant), I will leave it for few weeks
    with no trimming, love it goes bushy
