    Also, either one would need to be hooked up to a little air pump too, is that right? I'd love to find a battery operated one that was fairly quiet.
    You can make a lot of things into a bubbler, I suppose, but generally it's the same thing. You can use sponges, ceramic, rock, other ornaments, etc as bubblers. Usually, when I mention them, I'm talking about a ceramic air stone.

    Ceramic does tend to create smaller bubbles than many other things, so that's probably the best option for diffusion. Otherwise, your surface agitation is dependent on the capabilities of your air pump. You can find pretty quiet air pumps. The one I'm currently using is a Top Fin (and it's NOT very quiet), so stray from that one. It was the closest one in my cabinet, so I used it. lol

    Tetra makes a pretty quiet one that I have. It's a Tetra Whisper. Haven't tried any battery operated ones, but most air pumps can be had at pretty affordable prices. Check Amazon.

    I have the Tetra Whisper and can't hear anything unless I'm right next to it. It helps to put a small towel or cloth underneath them

    Just realized I forget to mention it, but tooth paste is the best way to get rid of funk on your hands, just a dollop with some hand soap and you're good to go.

    Oh man that is awesome!! Love those clown loaches. My problem with these types of big tanks is they never seem to be scaped very well. I know that is probably something left up to the keeper rather than the tank being too big for plants to get light. I just wonder why they leave them so bare looking.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    770gal? Whew... That's a little bigger than I was thinking, but I'll take it. lol I would make that tank look completely different (and possibly get something a little shorter), though. It's too empty for my liking. I'd need to plant it pretty heavily, then stock with (either Angels & Discus, or a school or two of rainbows), a big school of Roselines, huge school of rummynose, 1-2 large schools of corys, and I'm torn on loaches, but I'd like to keep clown loaches. I don't want to keep things that will look odd together, though, and clowns get huge... so maybe a big school of Botia dario (which are much smaller, but similar looking). Black sand substrate capping soil of some sort. Not sure which soil, though (the cheap stuff, probably - that's a big tank. ;P).
