Yes, very low tech. I haven't added any CO2 or other fertilizers in ages. The thing about the Finnex lights (and probably most others in that category) is that they are fairly slim. A tank of 57...

I use the Finnex Planted+ with a set of 6-inch (?) acrylic raisers over a 57g. Works beautifully, looks great.

That question is impossible to answer without looking at all your plants close-up. Root tabs won't do much for your plants that pull all their nutrients from the water column, but they will make your...

Good idea! You can also put the jar in the freezer for a few minutes to immobilize them without killing them.



Eh...I'll just use flakes and frozens. ;)

Yeah, as Django said, you'll probably need to move your light up. The thing is that these plants should grow just fine with just some fish waste, light, and CO2. With the plant selection you have, I...

What's the distance of the light to the water? Veeery subjective question, but does the tank seem very bright?

Also, when you say CO2, you mean Excel or a similar product, yes? Oh, and what/how...

Flow is important, no doubt. It's a tank's pulse. That said, people generally overthink it. Even dead spots are rarely truly dead spots - just a lot slower. If your plants are happy, I don't think...

Pearl gouramis are much more peaceful than dwarfs, which can be bullies. I don't think that's going to be an issue in your tank, though, because the other fish are so much faster.

In general,...

Keeping tanks at lower temperatures

I have a 57 gallon tank that I have had at around 72 for a couple of months now, and this has been working very well for me.

This is an ultra-low maintenance tank. I gravel-vac and change about...

Kind of ironic that the company's website emphasizes the ethics of glofish and then markets a 1.5g tank on the same site.

I suggest moving the wisteria and adding a single Amazon sword plant center left. No beginner's tank should be without swords. They look fantastic, grow well, and keep your water quality high.
