Which brand of PFS did you go with?  And did you have to rinse it non-stop?  Bill

Need to post some pictures once you're able to. I can post the one you sent me if you want. If you can make it to the 7pm meeting this coming Wednesday, I'll hook you up with plenty of plants to get started with. Let me know and I'll PM you the details.

Just some advice, move the heater as far down as possible and in a horizontal position. Having it up so high is asking for trouble. Eventually you'll forget to unplug it while doing a water change. It will get very hot and shatter once cold water touches the hot glass. Keeping the the heater low also helps create water flow and even heating throughout the tank.

Is this a meeting for members of this board/club? Forgive me - I just recently signed up so I'm not sure if there is a posted schedule of events. I'd be interested in attending any get togethers.

Thanks.
