    So i'm setting up my tank and read up the comment in this months winners "oldest tank setup" . Seems like a great idea, I would like to hear any advice as now is the time to build one into my tank as I am setting it up.

    first, you need to make sure that the substrate you use is not too fine and will fall into the underground filter.
    Also ensure that the water is filtered before blowing it down into the filter. No point in blowing down flake food to go and rot down there.

    Not a lot of guys do use this method at all. I do understand how it works.
