Hair Algae is taking over my aquarium!

I have yet to find article to totally convince me that drop checkers are that much better. It's one color or another. How high is high, and how low is low? Know what I mean? No true specificity. It's...

Understood. With good circulation, though, you can accomplish good CO2 distribution. When I started using the KH/pH formula, I took water samples (with a large animal syringe) from 5 areas of the...

What time of day do you light your aquarium?

Do blackouts affect the hormonal balance in fish?

I had some BBA in one of my tanks (55gal). Used Excel at 3X dosage for 2 days, then 2X dosage every other day for the remainder of the next 2 weeks. Stuff is all gone.

I NEVER assume assume CO2 is good. I calculate it about 5 days/week, and I calibrate my pH meter every month. I have a BS in biology and BA in chemistry :-)

Hair Algae is taking over my aquarium!

Ugh! I've had a planted 150 gal aquarium set up for 2 years now. It took me a good 6 months to get the lighting set up to where it was adequate for my tank.
