I've gotten the beginnings of my RO storage for water changes set up in the (messy) basement. The drums are all plumbed together, through a shutoff valve, then in to the pump. It will be nice to...

Time for an update! I finally got the CO2 working better, and so have started fertilizing (modified EI) as well. Equipment first, then plants (saving the best for last).

When I was running one in my 75 (vs in the sump below) I was using a corner filter (somewhere else on the swisstropicals page) rather than an end wall. I used a piece cut for a 55, but only because...

That's pretty much it. Just remember to press in to the foam. More like siphoning gravel where you dig through it a bit and less like siphoning sand where you just skim over the surface. I...

Removing the foam does make a mess if it is gunked up, but it clears fairly quickly. I have four tanks running with them now (two of which are shrimp tanks I haven't ever cleaned the filters on). ...

That's interesting Hoppy. My mattenfilter tanks are all low enough light that I don't have BBA issues, but I did run a high light mattenfilter tank once as well. Of all the million places I got...

I've been slowly adding plants and fish (and algae). CO2 goes on today which means a lot of the more interesting plants will start to come across as well. I'll continue upping the stocking based on...

Despite the lack of updates I have actually been working on this thing. The first thing: I needed a more permanent filter. An HMF like filter has worked pretty well on past tanks, so this will be...

No changes in planting since the other day, but I'm planning out stocking. I'm well aware that the fish will probably eventually eat the cherries, but when you have the surplus of cherry shrimp that...

Dirt in, sand in, and time for a couple plants. Some light planting to get things started. A couple dozen crypts, more dozens of dwarf sag to get fast coverage for the shrimp. Eventually added a...

I got the dirt in today, between 2 and 2.5 inches. It worked out to three bags of MGOPM. I opted to try graded pool filter sand (centered around #30) rather than my usual play sand or black...

JC's 300

Some of you have heard that I've been in the process of setting up a large tank in my living room. Now that it is in the house I figure the time has come to start a thread on it.

Cleaning a lot of sand

I'm getting ready to set up a 300 (8' by 2' footprint) and am going to need a lot of sand. In the past I've used play sand over potting mix which I plan to do again unless someone can make a strong...

Go buy a submersible heater that will get the tank between 86*F and 90*F if you don't have one already. I say submersible because they hold temperature better and often have a built in thermostat. ...

Can you expand on this a bit? I was thinking of adding it (never kept it before) in a tank I'm setting up. Unfortunately I don't personally know anyone who has kept it to hear their experiences.

Was one barely emersed and the other more submerged? Mine makes a significant change when it starts creeping out of the water on things.

I made a sous vide setup with a cooler, a relay, some cup heaters, and one of those a couple years ago. Worked quite well until it let the magic smoke out one day.

Latex if you want stocking to remain constant, non-latex if you want your fish to breed.

I've raised parts of planted tanks by slowly throwing in sand over time, but I've never tried it with a grass carpet. It does seem like it should work though.

Please explain this to me in a bit more detail, I'm not following. If there is nowhere for CO2 to get out, how/where is O2 getting in?
