Update: Tank is getting cloudy from bacterial bloom which is good and fast. Only put the water tuesday night . This filter is great clycling my tank fast. I will be putting the subtrate and transferring most of the plants from my other tank when I have a day off. Now looks like there no leak and filter is doing great.

Thanks guys. I will just rinse my dirty filter from my old tank to it. Thats if i got time... Maybe Sunday I will put substrate and transfer most of my plants. I will be needing alot of plants. lol. Just makes me mad coz its too late for the compitition. If it only came a few months early. Hey guys dont u all want to compete for the IAPLC. There's nobody in the US won the competion yet thats what Frank from ADG told me. Maybe we all garther all our ideas to make a very nice scape and submit it. Well the dead line is May 28, maybe next time.
