IMO, they look better on something more substantial then the tank. I believe it's only 8 inches wide/deep or so. A stand that fits it perfectly makes it look precarious IMO. I think it looks best...

On one 20 long, I believe I had about 65 lbs of Flourite. I did not weight it, it was used stuff I had collected but I am pretty sure it was around that weight. Didn't have any issues. I have seen...

I don't usually remove mine, an ADA spring brush really helps. However, if you do plan on removing them every cleaning, I recommend putting some petroleum jelly around the bottom. Makes future...

Well, AnotherHobby has it down. If that came with the E-Series, I would have jumped on board right away. Funny how much more capable it is due to the IR stuff. I am still considering this light so...

This has become one of my favorite scapes on the board. Falls right in between Iwagumi and a mountain scape. For some, they are one of the same, for me they are different but at the end of the day,...

With so many on the market, they are going to be hard to sell until you get great at making them. Even for cheap, there are a lot of cheap options.

I would say once a year but it's been awhile. Many will say shorter, 6 months. On high wattage CF/PC bulbs, I found a noticeable drop off in about 6 months, tubes seem to last longer.

I would suspect a leak as well. I can't figure out why it would do this because of a leak but mine did exactly that last time I did have one. I guess something would reseal/unseal or something. ...
