"Old item"? Suppose it has been discontinued? Could that be why the folks at the LFS were so eager to foist if off on me? Gosh, you'd think Hagen would know something about their own product, even an...

Along with the brown diatoms is a small amount of green pin dot algae on the glass. There is never much of this. It's harder to scrub off than the brown stuff. It's actually quite sparse.

Well,...

Thank you, Jeffkrol.

I see you found the elusive product code A1645. The specs for that light are exactly the same as mine with one minor exception. It has it on the screen as being 90 cm, whereas...

I've tried floating hornwort, and it wouldn't stay at the surface. It kept descending to the substrate, tangling up in the leaves of my Anubias, and wrapping itself around my prefilter sponge.

This is an established aquarium. I've had it up and going since 2012.

I'm not sure what is meant by "built-in reflector". Looking at the bulb, it appears like the distinctly darkened area is...

Need some straight answers about my new light

The staff at the LFS wouldn't address my concerns about this light, nor would they answer my questions. Maybe some of you can help.

First, this is the strangest aquarium bulb I've ever seen. When...

Clean joke, and very funny

A city slicker was driving in the country, saw a creek, and decided to take a shortcut across it. He entered the water and immediately sank ten feet to the bottom. A farmer rescued him, and when he...

I have now seen images of both kinds, and I do think the Fluval Edge is more aesthetically pleasing, plus, it looks like the other one has a hard plastic core opening that might be difficult to slip...

Thank you.

At this time, it appears nothing in the tank is being harmfully affected by this product. I'm checking the dorsal fins of the two whiteclouds daily to see if the parasite drops off. A...

I assume your tank is cycled?

Since it's heavily fed and there's lots of detritus, I suspect your ammonia and nitrite levels might be elevated. Have you tested for ammonia and nitrite, as well as...

Duckweed does best in still waters with little or no current. It doesn't like strong current, at all. So if your duckweed isn't doing well, it could be because your current is too strong for it.
