The plans are great.  I hope you're getting the manual in addition to the plans as it goes into more detail of what needs to be done.  As with any manual, there is still a lot left out due to locale, weather, etc., and you can only get that through experience.  My Micro 128 is built to spec, but I still don't have my nitrogen cycle established.  The nitrobacter aren't converting the nitrites into nitrates as quickly as I would like.  My local water is at 8.2 pH, and some of the literature indicates that that may be too high for the nitrobacter (but ok for the nitrosomonas).  I'm in the process of researching organically approved ways to lower the pH in my system.

How do you like your system?

I saw the plans for sale tonight and thought I'd get others impressions first.
