Wow. I never would've guessed that was a 10g. Looks like a 20! Just goes to show what can be accomplished with a good aquascape. Well done. Very nice.

Member, it looks great. Would you mind sharing some information on the equipment (lighting, filtration, CO2, etc.)? Thanks.

Welcome to the board Member! We are all glad you have joined us here!

Your aquarium looks great. The lay out looks like it is going to be a real eye-popper in a couple of weeks. Be sure to post more photos!

Your tank looks cool... my only suggestion is that it might be better to have your filter's inlet and outlet at opposite ends of the tank so that all of the water gets turned over more thoroughly and the CO2 gets distributed more evenly.

You are correct, have no idea how to use them, only how to fix them since I do 1st level support for airports, portables and the new G5 mac's and 2nd level support on ipods.

The real problem is not really with the computer, nor the user in this case, but the hosting site is blocked on the corp network.


Wanna buy an AppleCare Protection Plan....

Thanks for the suggestion.I did not want to disturb my Co2 bubbles that much so I left it to one side.

Should I then in turn move my Co2 towards the middle of the tank if I place my outlet at the other end of the tank.

Anybody else have any suggestions on this?

Thanks in advance

Hi Member, can you tell me where you got your Coralife 32w? I only see a 20" (I assume that's the length of your 10g tank) strip light with a 28w 50/50 bulb at the Coralife website and saw no 32w CF bulbs. Did you replace the bulb?

Thanks.

I did replace the bulb.The Coralife 20" ballast will power a 40w CF bulb so I switched it with 1 of my 32w 10000k bulbs from my reef tank.
