I use a Finnex 12" fugeray and am happy with the fixture. If you don't mind that your fixture isn't matched with the other one you already own, it's a good buy.

I've been using the same substrate for years and never had too many MTS. There have been a few population explosions over that time, but I never had so many that they were out of control. I've seen...

I think that hydra can sting any shrimp during the molting process. I'm pretty sure I lost a few shrimp that way in the past. I had an explosion in hydra population at one time that coincided with a...

Just don't put them where they'll be in direct sunlight the whole time or right in front of the air conditioning vent and they'll be fine.

Don't stress too much about it. I'm sure there is a combination of factors going on here, and I've certainly seen people with tanks that have more powerful lighting growing java fern. I think one of...

What kind of white sand is that? It looks nice and like it has a very small grain size.

I've had a similar problem to yours and I just think that the java ferns like to be left alone and almost like being neglected.

I think this process is going to be very stressful for your fish. It's also going to be tough to get the old substrate out without making a huge mess if you don't empty the tank. You may also end up...

Something is nibbling on the tasty, fresh, and tender new leaves. It's probably the loaches or maybe a snail hitchhiker. Your gravel and shrimp wouldn't do that to a plant. The new growth doesn't...

Also, if 6700K appears too yellow for your liking, you can mix a 10,000K bulb in there to make the light appear more white. It's really more of a preference, but both work fine for plants

Just don't be surprised if the betta eats them. Cover can help delay the inevitable, but not prevent it.

It seems like your most sensitive livestock died first, recheck your water parameters.

I don't think it will cause any harm. You essentially made charcoal. If you don't like the burnt part, just scrape it off.

Not a bad idea. I could always throw on a 45 psi pressure release valve from my parts bin since I'll be using NPT fittings.
