On the colors, was changing some bulbs around and realize just...

From the ceiling. Actually, depending on your home, and fixture, it makes it look big. I personally like the look. However, this is a good guideline on how to do it clean by member Tom Barr-...

I would think it would be fine. It should be fine with pressurized CO2, it's always hard to guess with DIY. I don't know if you can remove a bulb on the 24 inch fixture and have the other work, if...

I am convinced that this fixture is slightly better than a decent one bulb T5HO. Well, I should say two of these lights are in the range of 2xT5HO. Basically, due to the reflectors and others, you...

Do you have any CFL desk lamps? And old tank perhaps? If you can fit in a 5-10 gallon, you could likely use a single desk lamp and the tank. If the can be grown emmersed, you could even use a bowl...

There are some shops that sell them, here is a list. I can tell you that more than a few on the list don't have much of ADA stuff, and some I rarely see anything ADA. Most buy online.

I personally like tall rocks so I like the second scape better. In general, I like the rocks to be around 2/3 of the tank in height, sometimes taller. I think with some tweaking the second version...

I have been successful with this method but it requires you have more than one tank, or spend money on plants you don't need. First, add a bunch of plants, they can float, no need for them in the...

I have never had a large tank but it's usually recommended that you don't use a diffuser on a large tank, well, at least just one. Most use a reactor which can be made cheaply. If you have a sump,...

I have seen enough ADA tanks on the board with glass tops to think they still look great. Not a lot out there but I don't think it ruins the ascetic at all.
