I went SLS and gotten:
- 2 fans at $10 each
- Adaptor at $10
- Socket (for e wires to connect to adaptor) at $2

-------------------
A lot of kind sponsor from Lorkon, including some expensive items such as splitter valve, ioniser, diffuser, etc (just to mention a few). Deeply appreciate your kind gesture. I must bake lemon bread and Baileys muffins for you once I'm done with my tank

Haven't quite started planting. 1 pot of don't remember what plant died (melted) due to being kept in plastic bag since last Sunday. Just dropped some other plants into the tank for now since the CO2 is running.

Few things done only:
- Fan is fixed up this morning.
- Splitter fixed up (but don't know how lorkon's bubble counter work )
- Using wave maker to let the water flow in the tank before canister is hook back in.

Few things I want to get done within this weekend:
- Will try and tie plants tomorrow since I have things on today.
- Fix up another power bar so I can hook up to the timer. Will run Lights, CO2 and Fan from this single timer (possible to do this tonight after I get home.
- Want to do partial wc tonight

Will try and post some photos tomorrow. Very simple tank only.

Yes the carpet is rather nice. Not back breaking to plant (just empty tank and scatter seeds) compared to glosso, hair grass, etc. But not sure how is it like when they mature since this is a new plant type for carpet.

The splitter is 3 way and it runs on 1 bubble counter directly below it. I didn't take photo but here's similar item taken off the net.
