Hi  Andrew,
 
 It's  a  Beauty!!!  Clapping   
 
 Also,  I  see  that  you  are  maintaining  a  good  water  current  flow  using  the  2  lilly  pipes  placed  at  the  Opposite  corners  near  the  water  level.  
 Is  this  sufficient  to  have  a  good  water  flow  even  near  the  bottom  of  your  tank?
 
 I  have  a  single  long  spray  bar  towards  the  left  side  of  my  tank  which  comes  from  a  Dophin  1600  filter  and  I'm  not  happy  with  the  water  flow  as  I  see  the  Protein  layer  formed  regularly.  
 Does  a  wavemaker  help  to  increase  the  waterflow  for  a  better  circulation?
 
 Thanks,
 Karthik                

 
 Thanks  Karthik,
 
 whatever  type  of  flow  whether  spray  bar  or  lily  pipe  there  will  be  good  water  flow  in  bottom  also,  so  no  need  to  worry  about  that,  Most  of  the  people  will  keep  spray  bar  in  backside  but  i  always  placed  in  side  of  my  tank  only,  i  used  spray  bar  only  first,  when  i  got  BBA  kept  another  filter  for  better  water  circulation  but  the  current  was  too  much  so  i  replaced  with  lily  pipe  now  the  flow  current  is  good  and  BBA  also  gone,  Before  placing  the  lily  pipe  i  checked  the  flow  by  placing  it  in  my  quarantine  tank   and  poured  some  ink  to  see  how  the  flows  goes  after  that  only  i  placed  in  opposite  corner  which  gives  perfect  circular  flow  for  me,  i  use  10mm  lily  pipe  and  16mm  lily  pipe,  i  really  love  the  flow  from  lily  pipe  because  it  was  good  flow  around  tank  and  not  strong  also.
 
 Surface  film  forms  sometimes  from  your  co2  also  and  if  you  dose  macro  and  micro  on  same  day  also  you  can  see  the  film  or  some  of  your  hard  scape  is  leaching  out  there  are  many  reason  for  it  you  need  to  improve  surface  agitation  or  keep  skimmer  if  you  see  the  above  pic  i  use  skimmer  which  comes  with  sunsun  filter  because  when  i  changed  to  PPS  pro  dosing  method  i  started  getting  film  on  top  because  in  pps  pro  we  dose  macro  n  micro  on  same  day  to  confirm  that  i  changed  back  to  EI  not  getting  the  film   but  I'm  a  lover  of  pps-pro  dosing  method  so  kept  skimmer  which  comes  with  sunsun  filter  but  did  little  changes  to  it  for  working  better,  actual  setup  doesn't  work  at  all.
 
 yep  wave  maker  will  do  the  job  but  always  follow  the  10x  rule  more  than  that  your  fish  will  be  unhappy  and  will  be  in  stress.  my  tank  is  around  200-210  litres  and  i  use  2000litre  output  and  600litre  output  but  after  adding  media  and  all  my  total  flow  from  both  canister  will  be  around  2000  only.

 Hi,
 
 Below  are  some  pic  of  the  plants.
 
 lobelia  cardinalis  :  In  highlight  this  plant  really  grows  compact  and  bushy  
 
 
 
 Limnophila  Aromatica:  This  plant  also  grows  compact  and  bushy  with  highlight  and  requires  proper  fert  dosing  when  i  bought  it  was  purple  and  it  started  to  shoot  green  leaves  and  after  doing  some  research  some  said  decreasing  nitrates  will  emit  purple,  now  I'm  dosing  less  nitrates  and  the  new  shoots  are  coming  purple  but  really  not  sure  whether  it's  because  of  nitrates.
 
 
 
 Limnophila  Aromatica  and  Ludwigia  Inclinata  Var  Cuba

 Andrew,
 
 I  find  your  methods  very  simple  but  highly  inspiring.  Especially  the  Ink  idea  was  wonderful.  However,  the  more  I  search  on  the  Internet  for  the  flow.  The  more  I'm  confused.  I've  started  a  new  topic  your  inputs  will  be  highly  appreciated
 
 Thanks,
 Karthik.

 Its  always  good  not  to  have  a  dead  spot  in  the  tank.  Moving  water  would  be  always  good  to  have  the  fertilizer  and  co2  reaching  the  entire  area  of  the  tank.
