i have been considering those, but what do you do about heating when you get to the 180gl level? i don't want to have 2 or 3 heaters hanging over the side.

thats pretty much the only reason i'm considering the pro 2 series, the internal heaters...

When you get to 180g+, you put your heaters in a sump, and/or go with the titanium heaters or inline heaters.

I have the classic series and it sure gets to be a pain to clean them! However, like I have said a million times, I know these filters will last me a very, very long time.

Wright4life, I hear you! I have a garage full of pieces parts from various upgrades over the years, and I imagine I would have saved $$ if I had just gotten the best stuff to begin with. It is a smart way to do it

EDIT: Go with titanium heaters, speaking of good "goods."

If you have $$$ to burn, why not get a silinder CO2 set with pH controller?

I know Sera make a good want with pH controller.

std type the CO2 system shut off according to timer, whereas the Sera's one shut off once the pH reach certain level in the tank water.
