This is really amazing. My family went to visit Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT recently, and I couldn't help but wonder why they don't have real plants in any tank. They did have a decent Cichlid...

I think you'll be very happy with the green neons. They aren't quite as colorful as the cardinals, but after you've had then a while they color up nicely and even get a small red underbelly similar...

Awesome tank. I tried keeping sakura cherry red shrimp with my cardinals in the 60P and the cardinals picked them off one by one over the course of a month or so. They would wait until the shrimps...

This is a really great point, and I wish more "high-tech" people would consider this. A lot of "low-tech" people aren't necessarily cheap. Maybe they just don't want to spend time every day...

I'm glad you pointed this out, Frank. Every successful method acknowledges the need for all life on this earth to have a carbon source. We are all carbon based life forms, after all. They just do...

The tank above is a dirt tank, so I would imagine it will last like that indefinitely; much longer than a typical high tech tank. The tank above is not mine.

Personally, I am a high tech person. ...

This is why reading this thread is painful. There is no need to ridicule a method that is different than yours, yet equally effective.

Time for an update. It's been 1 month since I got the Innovative Marine lights and I think it's safe to say that they rock at growing plants!

Looks like a great tank and great equipment, but 2213 is way too small of a filter for this tank. I would go with 2x 2217 personally, double lily pipes, that way you could always leave one running...

So far they are pretty nice. I like the clean look, and the coverage with 2 of them is decent for a 60P. They give med-high light for a 24"x9" section of the tank. The one drawback is that the 60P...

Well, I actually pulled the hairgrass a couple weeks ago and planted glosso instead. The hairgrass takes over everything eventually - it even sent runners underneath the stones into the background,...

I bought a pair of these lights for my 60P. So far, so good. The 10K temperature is a little cleaner white than my previous 6.5K T5HOs.

I will let you know if the glosso I just planted in the...

I was using an inline one on the same regulator before, and it worked fine. This one seems to take a little more pressure, though. I think it varies between manufacturers. The Archaea diffusor...

This one is on an Aquatek regulator, so it can only do 30 psi. It does seem to work if I let it run for a while, but I can only get a limited amount of Co2 out of it, which points me to the diffusor...

Yes, that's the one. Perhaps I just need to wait longer. I checked for leaks with soapy water and found none.

Atomic Diffusor w/ solenoid - variable PSI

Does anyone else have this issue with the atomic-style diffusors?

Brand new Up-Aqua Atomic Diffusor - says it requires 2kg/cm pressure, which is equal to 30 psi. I connect it to a regulator set...
