Same here. I have a 57g and top off when the spray bar noise gets annoying. That's usually 2-3 gallons every 1-2 weeks, depending on the ambient temperature. It also helps to keep the tank a bit...

I would gladly pay an extra $20 just for not having to set foot into the aquarium section of a Petsmart. Which I never do.

Neither of those are real nano fish. It's true that they are small, but in a 5 gallon, there is nothing for them to do but stand in one spot. If you've seen these kinds of fish in a large tank,...

True, but they're awesome little psychos. I vote for a pea puffer as well. Especially if you have some snails available.

How much space do you have? If you have a reasonably large tank (say 40b and up), a school of zebra danios would make a stunning display. If you give them enough space, they are also very...

You can get the Eco Complete if you like it, but it's not going to be significantly better than other inert substrates.

Does the light have blue and cool white LEDs? If so, it's meant to be for saltwater (not that you can grow much with those stock lights) and not ideal for a planted tank. You can get started with it,...

I'm a linguist. I work in speech recognition and also in language assessment. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have studied what I love and to be able to pay my bills doing what I love.

Great ideas, thank you! I think I'll do both: Build a little dam around the tank and glue/silicone a little cover over the outlet.
