Wow all of these posts are very useful, thank you! I was worried that there would be to much Bio in the Eco.. and would lead to high nitrites/ammonia. I think the bacteria in the substrate break bio down tho.. I will be having a carpet of plants, so there shouldnt be an issue with that. Im more worried about filling and changing my tank..
As I will be living in a 3rd floor apartment.. haha. From the living room to the kitchen or bathroom it's maybe 25ft? Or less? Or more? not sure.. I havent checked.. Ill be moving into my new apartment soon haha. Not soon enough however
I use syphons for my 10g right now and put it into a 2.5 bucket haha. Guess that means Im old school? Funny about that is.. Im probably the youngest on this site. lol
At any rate, Ill find a cheap hose to use for syphoning out of my 75, and for filling.
Thanks for the replies!
