Yes, air stone right underneath the heater to help distribute the heat. Well that is my thinking.

Great video, id like a lava rock setup at some point but the nice dark stuff over here is pretty expensive.

I can send you some for cheap in July, but shipping is expensive?

The brown stuff is cheaper but the black isnt. especially if you need to fill a 17 gallon tank with it.


Edit: If I had another tank id probably go for the offer but i'm going to stick with 3 for now as they are establish, thank-you for the generous offer though. I might be able to talk the other half into letting me have another tank at some point. :laugh: :laugh:
