I keep looking back at the T5 I originally posted. Could you guys let me know what I could keep with it? What would I need to keep in the upper half of the tank and what could I put lower?

Also im probably going to have a 2-3 inch sand bed so that makes it only 17" to the bottom. I hope that T5 will be good.

Odyssea seems to be hit or miss; Some people love them, some people hate them. I file them under don't knock it till you try it... but then again I don't like Krispy Kreame when everyone else does

Well, I do enjoy my T5s. Dont know that I needed to mod it, just did it from stories I have read online.
(Dont like Krispy Kreme either, bad after taste)
