It's an "output issue".

I spent 13 years on the SW side, and the simple issue is loss of penetration (output) over time. I saw every change in lighting platforms from VHO to PC to T5 to MH and now...

Absolutely 100% agree on all counts.

Awesome fish and just tough as nails. I'm closing in on 1000G of water between the den and the fish room and these guys are really close to the top of my list....

Lucky may not say enough.

The tank is awesome, but the effort goes beyond words.

And you're absolutely correct: Things in the USA are stooopidly expensive when it comes to this hobby.

Great movie!

I've always had issues with folks that get paid to be called "critics".

Robin Williams eventually "fell out of favor" with a bunch of them for doing too many feel good flicks....

Not all suction cups are created equal.

When I bought the first of the AC's a few years ago and looked at the four itty-bitty suction cups, I thought the same thing. But I have to say they hold on...

The man made me cry sooooo many times, for many reasons.

Hands down, the funniest man of my lifetime, a great actor, and a good human being.

Chips happen.

It's just the properties of glass that make them give you that queezy feeling in the pit of your stomach. Even if you knew exactly how it happened, there's just no way to tell if it...

I don't want to drag this into a debate over powerhead brands, but the brackets on my AC's are a pretty tight fit; so much so that turning them upside down wouldn't be a problem. If the crazy glue is...

Although lots of plants will flower, there's a couple that will be a little "showier" than most: the peace lily (spathphyllum) as suggested here and anthurium can put on a real show and do well with...

You'll have 3" of "air" on each side of a 20H. You may be able to put a piece of 3/4" plywood in the top of the stand and set the 20H on top of that. But I have no idea how well the tank would sit on...

I'm not sure about the latex in the Ficus. You may very well be correct. I was just kinda "talking out loud" about the Nightshades. It just leaves me scratchin' my head a bit as to how an animal...

You're basically describing a column tank. I think Marineland sells a few different sizes and Petsmart usually has them on display.

Orchids won't stand having their roots submerged long term. In essence, those Paphs will drown slowly.

One more Aquaclear endorsement. I've run a bunch over the years and I only hear the splash which tells me I have top off and it's dead silent again. At least to me it is.

What's the diameter of the bulb?

I hate to say it, but I think it was designed to be a throw-away.

I had bought something similar years ago to use as a refugium light for SW systems. The bulb...

Keep up with maintenance, maybe be a little more frequent, feed a little less (watch and see that all is consumed) and the numbers should stay in check. I don't see any reason to panic. I can't keep...
