Some crappy cell phone pics of the tank rescape. The "permanent" setup I put in place with all the zip ties was, as expected, a royal PITA to remove. Lesson learned. The rocks from Davefish were...

I've heard the latest versions of Amazonia don't leech quite as heavily as previous versions, but it's still not something I'd try with the fish in. As roadmaster said, you'd likely get an ammonia...

What's the ID on the Fluval 206 tubing? 1/2" plumbing sounds skinny. With a complex setup like that you want to oversize the plumbing to minimize flow reduction.

If it's plexiglass and not polycarbonate, just cut the two vertical lines, score the horizontal line, and snap it off using a sharp table edge as a guide. Much easier than cutting all 3. The corner...

H4n makes a good stainless steel prefilter. The fine mesh version should trap food like you're looking to do, unless it's very fine/powdery food.

Care to explain? Modern LED's generally have higher lumen/watt than T5HO, in part because they are directional and not dependent on reflectors, and in part because they are just more efficient at...

I believe the GPH rating on a UV sterilizer pertains to how much flow you can have before it starts losing effectiveness (ie water moving too fast for 100% sterilization). I don't think it is...

I own three, a Fugeray-R, a 12" Fugeray and a 24" Fugeray. The 24" Fugeray started strobe-lighting after about 5 months, but Finnex was quick to replace the unit. After about 3 months of operation,...

It depends on what you mean by "oxygenating" the water. Actually just straight up injecting O2? No, no effect whatsoever on CO2. Air pump and a bubbler? CO2 levels will drop from the increased...

O2 does not make pH go up. It's the act of "oxygenating" water that drives CO2 out of water that causes said pH to rise, not the O2 itself.

From what I understand, increased CO2 concentrations...
