    Your tank very nice seh, should be easy to maintain i assume? The plants are slow growers?

    Thanks for your kind words. Yes, but mainly clean-up crew including 8 nerite snails, 15 yamato shrimps and 10 Malayan shrimps.

    Planning to add more fishes or shrimps when the time comes (itís at my new place which I havenít shifted into yet)

    Re: Sulawesi rocks scape

    Appreciate the kind words, Kamran. Itís still a work-in-progress. I guess thereís still much improvements to be done (or perhaps just an excuse to get more Buceps in there). Thought I had rid myself of these plants from my system a few years back when I decommissioned my 3 feeter l.

    Love the triangular layout! By the way, what filter are you using for this tank?

    Iím using aquael unimax 500 after I broke the sicce whale 350 by accident awhile back.

    Overkill for sure, but the Buceps and I appreciate the rapid flow (which means I donít need a wave maker anymore)

    Re: Sulawesi rocks scape

    Nice scape bro! Are you going to add some Sulawesi Shrimps in? They love those rocks, i used to keep them using those rocks too.

    Can i find out where did you get your dennerli's black gravel from?

    Sulawesi shrimps were my original intention, but Iím not confident theyíll work with my plants now (heavily fertilized using EI and co2 enriched).

    I got the gravel from seaview aka nanyang aquarium.

    I don't think it's overkill. You can never over-filter a tank but it's possible to have too much flow. As long as the flow can be controlled, I think it's fine.

    Personally, I shoot for 20x flowrate. More flow, more filter media space and longer intervals between maintenance. What's not to like, right?

    Re: Sulawesi rocks scape

    blu3her0, your filter piqued my interest when I found out that it comes with two sets of inlets/outlets.

    I visited the manufacturer's website and found some info about the Aquael UNIMAX 500 but I hope you don't mind me asking you more about it.

    1. I wanted to ask you what's the inlet/outlet hose size and found out it's actually 16/22mm. Have you tried using a hose of that size and lily pipes for this filter?
    2. If I only want to use only one set of inlet/outlet, will it be possible to disable the other set of inlet/outlet? Just asking in case that option is required.
    3. Any other issues you have with using this filter? Or, what features do you like on this filter compared to other filters you've used?
    4. Price is about $300+, correct?

    Thank you in advance.
