    hi everyone

    So finally going to put some pics up of my setup. its has been running for 4 weeks now.

    any advise would be greatly appreciated regarding scaping and setup.

    Also i dunno if the powerheads is an overkill??

    thanks

    very nice little tank, personally i would take the flat rock in front away and maybe put it on one of sides of the scape or use it somehow to get the scape a bit higher, but by removing it, you will have more of a cave, i like that.
    i also have a small tank, have 2 powerheads, have them facing each other though, so created some random flow in the tank.

    Thanks nadeem. Ill try that. I put one powerhead facing my dt outflow to increase flow to the back chambers. Just think I might have to much flow now. One powerhead is 2000lh and the other is 3000lh.

    Hi Dylan, tank is looking good.
    I think those 2 powerheads are fine, I would just put the sunsun at the back so that its not in the line of site.
    Is everything in the back still standard?

    Maybe at some point replace the SunSun 3000L/h with another Seio 2000L/h

    As suggested, I would also try to gain some height with the rock work.
