    Not to be picky but you DIY'd a luminaire/light stand/holder...a ballast is the thing that regulates the current to the tubes :)

    So I have another question... I have an internal filter in my current tank that's been running since I've started that tank last year, and last week I required an Eheim 150 that i love.
    My question is, when you add an additional filter to an existing tank, how long does it take the new filter to build it's bacteria exec?
    the idea is to remove the internal filter.

    How does SCAPE's fertilizers compare to ADA and SEACHEM ?
    ADA seems HELL expensive, i currently use Florish and florish excel. I saw SCAPE's products on their website and now i'm wondering. :coff:

    A new filter will seed within a day...but depending on your bioload...I'd might keep both running so you dont get a bacterial bloom.

    I can't speak for everyone...but I use Scape and I love it...

    If you running high CO2 you can try Riccia Fluitans...a new golf ball and some netting.

    Or maybe even Fissidens
