I guess I started the thread based on research that I had done saying Malaysian Driftwood had a habit of turning water the color of tea, and is sometimes used to lower pH. I thought there might be...

I got home today and saw that they are standing tall. I'm starting to think that maybe the new growth is too soft to stand up, then after it matures a little is then able to stand. That stuff grows...

Huh...it's certainly possible. I don't really want to shorten the photoperiod since I'm running such a low light. I guess this means I'm gonna grow some droopy anacharis. Oh well...

Drooping anacharis

9 days ago I completely re-scaped my tank, converting to a sand/planted low tech tank. I am having modest success with the plants so far, other than my platies eating my Italian Val. However, I...

This driftwood doesn't discolor water!

Just wanted to let people know about a piece of Malaysian driftwood that I bought that I have found doesn't turn my water to tea. It's by Zilla. It seems funny to get "branded" driftwood, but...

LOL! Yeah, that was a major bonus of PFS, I didn't wash it at all when I installed it. If you have to spend that much time and water washing it, you sort of have to question its suitability. PFS...

+1 on the pool sand. As far as $ goes, I bought 50lb. bag at the pool supply store for $9.00. To me, that is pretty cheap, and I only used about 1/2 the bag in my 29g. It looks AMAZING, and guess...

Has anyone heard of platies eating plants? I know from prior experience that they like algae and have seen them eat the algae off my artificial plants before I took the plunge to go planted. I did...

As always, forums are fantastic for hearing about different experiences. On the one hand, Geniusdudekiran was adamant about NOT using MTS, and BaltimoreGuy is pro MTS.

Well, my original intent was to get the snails for the specific purpose of burrowing in the substrate. If nerites don't do that, then I'll probably just skip the snails. Geniusdudekiran has me...

From what I understand, the population grows in proportion to the amount of waste (or algae) there is for them to consume, is that correct?

So, should I start with two? I'm more concerned with...
