On the snails, two things... Never ask...

On the snails, two things...

Never ask anyone in a store about how to get rid of them. In my experience you will too often be given a product that contains copper which will ruin your tank. ...

Question Out of control tank - please help me find footing

Hello. Boy do I need some help.

Switching to canister - fluval 306

Hi,

Been a while since I've been on here. Had the good fortune of having a very consistent tank for quite a while. Then... we moved. And I've been back in battle mode. I just don't have the...

That sounds fairly positive. Looking at the PAR chart that Hoppy has out there, I was a little nervous. Was thinking about going down to the Marineland double-bright, but the reviews on that thing...

Interesting... so it sounds a lot like a one-n-done solution, until the fixture is completely done for (unless you DIY, at which point you are able to build for your own open architecture). For $100...

Finnex Fugeray too much for low-tech?

Trying to decide between the Coralife 2-lamp T5NO 48" or the Finnex Fugeray 48" LED for my standard 55 gallon low-tech reclaimation project. I will be using standard glass tops that either would be...

I've seen this Home Depot light referred to many times on here, now. I'm checking it out. It seems like it might be a little too much light, even, for what I want to do. I am just looking for a...

Wow. Just... wow. Look, I've read Hoppy's thread about PAR. But this is amazing to me (which shows why I'm struggling and why I'm here). I had a tough time growing much in my 55g tank until I got...

Okay... so thank you for the links which, wow, tons of information in those. I'm now certainly convinced about using PAR as the means for lighting a tank, rather than wattage. And I'm after the PAR...
