Oh, I just bought a 3000k bulb today, being told it would be red. I am saying I am struggling since I have the 3000k setup and it's hard to get used to. Same color combo you have.

My wife is already on board. I just need to re-home my Betta. Don't get me wrong, I love Betta's but now that I don't have them jump, they get old and lazy. Dwarf Puffers seem really fun, I always...

I am desperately trying to like this 3000k bulb haha. I have some time so I probably put every bulb in every position. The 3000k brings out a ton of red but unlike the pink bulbs (never tried red),...

Well, it's kind of a "A for effort" thing, I tend to agree with you. We are only seeing better LED's and these are not quite right.

I actually have grow HC in aquarium gravel, that's why I say it's the absolute biggest that will likely work. It had more trouble spreading initially but once it found places for the roots, it...

Thanks for the info. I will pay attention.

On another note, I thought I may save a few bucks and called the local hydroponics store. They had a "red" light that didn't say much about anything. ...

About the biggest grain size you would want is similar to the size of regular aquarium gravel, not that I would recommend that specifically. Even that is a little bit big but I have done it. No...

One thing to keep in mind. AS has bigger bags than most other substrate. If I had to guess, you likely get about 1/3 more per bag of AS than most other substrates. I only used 1 bag of it in my...

Wish I knew, last time I was there I had to go to Calabasas like 3 times in a week, once for like 3-4 hours just sitting at the BMW dealership. Looks awesome, never usually make it out that way.

That would be cool to see. How long do you think until fill? I may see if I can source the red locally, if I can, I may do that first. I doubt I can source the purple locally.

What's your local shop? I go down that way a few times a year and often have a few days of nothing to do so I just go to the aquarium stores in the area.

Your last picture makes it look like you learned about planted tanks from fellow member OVT haha. That's cool you to test out those LEDs. I think more cluster type LED's need to make it into the...

If you tear down, I strongly encourage you to try window tint. Even if you haven't done it, it's not hard when you can maneuver the tank. It's not simple, it's just not challenging. Again, it...

I have only found mine locally, I don't buy plants online. Depending on where you are at in LA, you may try Nature Aquarium or A+ Tropical Fish. They both seem to have a lot of plants. Or post a...

Thanks for the info. I like that a lot more, as far as I can see, compared to the 6,400k only. Have you used this on a previous setup or anything, it's a bit hard to tell without much red and no...

Great. I have seen this brand at OSH I believe, just couldn't find it in black on both sides many years ago. I may just use some poster board for pictures in the short run as I decide.

Yeah, exactly. Honestly, the more major issues I was having were the simplest, not enough flow/surface agitation and too low of CO2. However, it wasn't that simple, my guppies always look like they...

I have actually done that before, I couldn't find black so the side you couldn't see had a funky marble texture. It is easier. However, what I like about window tint is that it maintains the look...

Purple/Red bulb/bubs?

I am running a 4xT5HO on my 60P. I was running a bunch of random bulbs for awhile, I think I had some sort of 6,700k, a rosette, and two 10,000k. That combo actually looked fine when I was only...

IMO, the smaller the tank, the easier it is to use carpet plants. It takes much less time to trim, takes less time to grow out, plus you can usually get it to grow more quickly because the light...

I guess I never noticed. I am going to consider this, it will likely be window tint so it will be fairly easy to remove down the road.
