great advice, tkos.... don't know why i didn't think of that! it sure pays to get others input!

as for the co2, i'll be using the hagen system but am going to try hooking the outlet tubing to the uptake of my filter... i read that in post here before... i'll see how that works. otherwise, once my plants fill in i'll likely stop the co2 to slow the growth so i don't have to prune so much. at least thats my intention.

going to get a sponge and some floating plants!

Glad to help. Sometimes the easiest answer is the hardest one to think about. If you keep the water level high enough the 150 will not make too much disturbance.
