I`m going to start out very slow with this because I don`t want to be gassing my little buddies.If I can just keep my plants growing without any algae I will be happy.Here is a pic of my tanks as the stand now

Looking at your set up I think you have a problem. I am by no means an expert, but I think that putting a co2 tank on its side is a no no. That is because the co2 is in a liquid form in the tank. You want to use the gas on top as it vaporizes and you don't want liquid in your regulator. But hopefully someone who knows more that I will chime in.

Because of limited space inside the stand, I had to bring the filter and UV outside.I made a Griggs reactor and I am trying to figure out how to plumb it inside of the cabinet without it getting it airbound.
