Hi. I'm going to jump in here... I also own an Eclipse, actually two of them. They are great, but in my opinion it's the BioWheel which makes it great. There are only a few problems that I've run into and one being the gunk on the wheel and the impellor getting easily slowed down. I thought you may want to think about doing a fully planted tank with because if you get any free floating stuff bi-products it will require more maintenance with this filter.

I do like planted tanks though and what I've done is mix live and artificial. It fools the eye so you can't tell which is which.

Here are my two favorite links for cycling information.

Also, I do use the product they talk about, BioSpira. Worked like a charm to get 0 ammonia overnight without chemicals. That is my experience anyway.
