You forgot one important point that plays a big role in how fast water evaporates from a tank: humidity in the surrounding air. I run my airconditioners 24/7 all throughout summer. So even with...

Did you notice how big that thing is? The footprint went from 20x20 cm to over 30x30 cm. The height increased from 41 cm to nearly 60 cm. And it is recommended for tanks up to 1700 liters (in comp to...

I guess I might have to take a little trip upstate, James.

I don't have the particular heater. But I think the line on the heater means that it is the MINIMUM amount the heater has to be submerged, not the maximum.

Plants can very well take up sugar out of their surrounding medium and use it for growth. And it can completely replace their need for CO2 and light. Granted, this might not be a very natural growth...

Aquariumfish.net is a reliable source for SAE's. I think they are $2.75 per fish plus $25 flat fee shipping. I ordered from them multiple times and never had problems with DOAs or poor health of...

I hate that stuff. It is so hard to erradicate. I finally managed to get it out of three of my four tanks. The last one is still giving me trouble. There must be a source of Duckweed that I still...

One thing to look out for is that rotting leaves can cause otherwise healthy plants to rot away fairly rapidly. If you need to leave the plants in the bucket, clean off all rotting parts of the...

I love the temperature display in the hood. Does it measure the air temp under the hood or the water temp in the tank? Either way, I like it. :)

I've owned this particular PC Strip Light for 9 months now. It's not the best quality, but it does light up the tank fairly well and it doesn't look too bad.

They are supposed to be white hard plastic. I have never seen ones made out of rubber.

And also, I would not necessarily advocate the use of teflon tape. I have been using it for about one year,...

I'm pretty sure it's the main nut connecting the regulator to the bottle. That's where my first leak was that emptied out my tank within a few days.

Just as a side question (excuse the hijacking):...

Java Fern will do great in substrate-- if you are careful not to cover the rhizome. I grow my Java ferns in the substrate and on driftwood, and both do equally well.

96 watt over 35 gallon is certainly doable. But, it is right in the range where it might be best to start injecting CO2. In a tank of that size you will still be able to add CO2 by DIY with decent...
