I have a pair of A160we Tuna Suns over a 120H. I'm no lighting expert and bought them mostly on appearance because I wanted a pendant style led over the tank that had a ramp up/down feature. They're...

The entire tank is gorgeous, from the hardscape, to the planting, to the tank itself. It is and will grow into one of the best scapes on the forum. Yes, I'm a nature style fan :).

It sounds like progress. I've been looking forward to seeing this tank come together and it seems it's even closer than before now.

Lack of nutrients. It's hard to know how much light you have, but just having two fixtures over your tank makes me think you have enough that the plants need some supplementation. While being pretty...

Generic Eheim Pads

Has anyone used the generic Eheim pads that are available on *bay? I'm looking for pads for my 2076 and I prefer Eheim pads to cutting my own, etc. There's one seller in particular that implies the...

I looked at Aquariumfertlizer.com and didn't see potassium pernitrate listed in their mix, but maybe I was looking at the wrong item.

I'm not sure why you would need it. Based on what you're wanting to mix it seems unneeded. You have potassium nitrate as a nitrate source. If the purpose of potassium pernitrate is to be a potassium...

I would be happy to call that scape my own. I like it. If you want the rocks to look a bit less orderly, I've watched videos of Amano and after he would place the larger rocks he would then just kind...

I don't know if it's contradictory or not. I was just mentioning that those ferts do contain an ammoniacal source of nitrogen. So if one is using those they're adding ammonia to their tanks, albeit a...

I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is just adding a handful of plants to a new set up. A large plant mass is going to give you a more stable tank from the start. It also is more...

FWIW, I clean my pipes every week and they've been connected to the same Eheim tubing for the last 17 months and still reconnect quite snugly.

These double taps are a bit cheaper than Eheim's, but...
