It never going to be easy to see what is correct when we use the really cheap thermometers we use in the hobby. Looking at a line of liquid thermometers on the shelf, I see they vary, so in that...

I note that you have the reactor strapped solidly. I might try a simple item before changing things too much. I find I have to tilt my reactor to let the air pass through the water and on up to the...

I don't know the area at all so this may miss in some way but a suggestion might save lots of traffic as well as some money. Looking on Google, I see a lake nearby with lots of trees hanging over the...

I had to do a bit of search to find what we are talking here as I have not worked where they needed to do this.

Exactly how we each need to set the fans will depend on how much cooling we need. This is a tank that I'm okay with staying near 78, so with the AC cranking the house to 76, I really only need to...

I would assume more water will be used as it is the evaporation that gives the cooling but on this tank that is not a problem but just do it when changing water.

I recently got a new spin on cloudy water, also. I never have it but suddenly I do. That is a good time to ask what has changed and I look at my log book. I recently upgraded my lighting! I had...

Sorry about the big blank space in the above post. Seems Photobucket has failed --at least for right now?

No way! I've reached some...

Cheap mod for cooling fan?

As summer comes on, we will likely see many wanting some form of cooling for their tanks. This is often a place where we don't want to spend a great deal of money as it is a short term item. So that...

I simply skip it. EI is based on having an overstock of nutrients so skipping is one simple way to cut the excess that we normally do in water changing. It is all very much an estimate at best so if...

You will have to look at your local market to tell where to list. I find Craigslist to be a good value for me but then that will not work if there is no active list in your area. The market varies so...

Congratulations! I think?

In my case, I would not think it would work long term as my dry ferts tend to clump even when I don't tie up the bag to keep moisture off them. The airline is a major...

I would thing the leak is more likely to not be in the regulator itself. We often miss when we speak of the reg as a single item when it is a set of parts with the reg being one item. I might guess...
