In the weeks since this last post, I've made two changes: using Booster to increase GH by 1 degree and changing the spray bar angle from +20 to 0. Since then my healthy stand of p erectus has...

Maracyn dosing question

I need to treat a 29g, a 10g, and an 8g for BGA - how much should I order?

I read somewhere not to use maracyn 2, is that correct?

I had a chance to check out a sump with a large wet/dry, so now I have a better idea of how these operate, although there's a lot of variation between the diagrams I've seen and this one. Looking at...

Are you saying I could grow HC/ET/UG without CO2 using EI and spectrum-adjusted lighting?

I'm not clear if you ran it just over the top of Wall A and then down at 45 or all the way across the top to Wall B, then aimed it back.

There are some species that I'd like to try which require higher light and CO2. I also like the greater visibility of higher light tanks.

They are tiny and nearly invisible once in the tank. Never again.

Msjinkzd has some small crays that are plant safe and perhaps big enough to defend themselves. I'd ask her.

Based on an earlier comment, I'm guessing a 30 breeder might be the best sump size for a 120g. The diagrams I've seen use only around 2/3s of the available volume, so I'm not sure, though the piping...

Flame moss might also work well in a current-swept area, to emphasize flow, especially in an area of variable currents.

IME fissidens looks good on branches around thumb size or larger but not on the rocks I've tried.

I'm not a fan of the shaggy look of many mosses in smaller tanks (29g and below). They overwhelm...

BGA on plants may be one thing; BGA in sand is another. I've tried direct Excel injection, the one-two punch from the sticky, and dosing 1/8 tsp KNO3 weekly into a low light, lightly planted 8g for...

I'm guessing the wet/dry is intended for very large fish or perhaps discus? How noisy is it? I'm thinking about a well-populated community tank so maybe that would be overkill.

Thanks for taking the time for that detailed explanation. I'm leaning toward a sump, partially for ease of maintenance, but also the fun of putting it together.

Large peninsula tank - basic questions

What's involved in setting up a large, high tech, peninsula tank, say 120g? This is well outside my experience with smaller tanks and canister filters, so I have lots of general newbie questions. ...

It's an uninhabited tank. There's no fish waste to be processed. The bacteria in the filter probably died a long time ago.

That's a good point. It's an uninhabited tank though, so no need in this case, unless you mean to remove the bio media to maximize flow.

I added a power head for extra circulation and had the...

The sticky thread specifically says to use the filter, after removing the biomedia, and power heads if possible for maximal flow.

I have a 10g with 7 micro rasboras as the only inhabitants. Should I bother removing the biofilter? The bottom is mostly covered in fern and anubias and there are some trimmings floating.
