No that is not a typo. :D

The tank is very nice as-is but honestly it's not EXACTLY what I want. I've spent the last few weeks deliberating over what fish to replace the neons with and I've come...

Honestly I am still baffled. I've had this same CO2 rig (tank, reg, needle valve, diffuser) on smaller tanks with poor surface agitation and when the tank dumped the fish would get a little loopy but...

I guess I am way overdue for an update. Things have been progressing in a mostly good, sometimes frustrating manner, which I guess is the way it goes when you're dealing with living things. :D

You can see I have some sort of stringy diatom thing going on. I am siphoning it out when I get the chance and hoping it is just new tank syndrome. Also turned lights down a few percent over the...

Well, around 50 neons went in today. They look AMAZING under the LEDs. Even under the typical daylight setting which is fairly warm the RB LEDs just make them explode with color. Somehow a stray...

So after roughly a week of fiddling with fertilizers I'm already testing my attention span. It's not the "difficulty" of the action, it's just the fact that I have to do something every day. :D Yes...

Do the tube endings terminate under water? Are there check valves in the lines? Many of these cheaper peristaltic pumps are not 100% foolproof when it comes to preventing free flow (there may be a...

I appreciate the feedback. It seems to me like part of the point of traditional EI is so you know you're not limiting plants but you don't have to test. I don't mind testing and honestly I don't care...

The haze is likely the glass becoming etched from the deposits. No real way to get that out except mechanical means.

Water just reduces the strength (making it less dangerous), I wouldn't say it deactivates it. If you go full strength I would wear goggles and long sleeves.

Also, home depot and lowes will sell it, and many hardware chains (i.e. True Value, etc.). Look in the paint section - they sell it to clean concrete floors prior to painting.

I like the light background but then again I am probably biased.

I like the islands, too. I wish I had the restraint to leave that much open space.
