The Eheim 2227 was finally re-positioned below the aquarium which will make servicing, in the future, much simpler. While making a mess, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and streamline the intake, spray bar, and breather tubes. I also trimmed each respective tubing to the appropriate size. The wet/dry action of this canister filter requires that the tubing for both the intake and spray bar are the correct length. The breather tubing length is not as critical.
Green and brown algae are starting to grow. The aquarium still hasn't completed the fish-in cycle process and I probably have the light on for to long. The Vallisneria and Vesuvius are already starting to propagate new nodes.
