    Yes; and don't forget to send a PM so I can give you the discount code. You can see my 20 long in the Pictures section "My First Plakat....." That tank has a Finnex Stingray.

    I think that I'm going to look into LED lights instead of Fluorescent lights and have low light plants. (yes i know i change my mind a lot) i was wondering, what plants do you have? and do you think id have algae problems if i got a finnex stingray and had plants light anubias, java fern, and crypts?

    Hello I've posted a photo of harrys (my betta) fins to get some advice on if he's nipping his own fins or if he has any thing else I posted it in my post called urgent help! Can you please give some advice ? :)

    I leave the carbon in but don't replace it when I figure it's depleted. I also leave in the ceramic rings. The filter floss is more like a sponge. I add a second one when I take out the carbon.
    I have the spray bar in the water but at the waterline and point it toward the tank wall. I leave it on wide open and the Betta don't have a problem swimming around it.
    Keep asking. I don't mind.

    So you've got me into maybe getting an internal filter from truaqua.com. but id like to ask you some questions if thats okay.
    Do you use the carbon that comes with it? because I've heard that the carbon will take out any plant fertilizer in the tank
    Do you use filter floss and/or ceramic rings?
    Does the spray bar go above the water or in the water?
    thanks for all your help!
