Make sure you put in enough gravel- there should be about 5-10 pounds of gravel for that amount of water. Less grave- less area for the bacteria to set up on. PERSONALLY i'm not a huge fan of UGF as the waste and dead bacteria can collect underneath it causing nitrate problems- unless you are vigilant with using a siphon on the intake hose connection to siphon some of that crap out.

Let us know how it goes!
