For what it's worth, I went to Home Depot and spent $3 on river rock pea gravel. It looks excellent when washed and I got a LOT of it for this price. I have a ton left over that I use around the...

I jumped in much like you did, but the advice given was to plant the crap out of it right away which I did (loaded it to the brim with anacharis as a floater). I actually have learned to love the...

I used Miracle Grow Organic potting MIX (not soil) and it has sustained my 10 gallon for a long time now. It's full of peat moss and "natural" fertilizer (chicken poo and decomposed chickens). It's...

Anacharis is kind of like crypt, it seems to be easy to shock, but is also really durable and grows like mad. Every time I move it into a different tank I get the old growth browning/melting...

If you leave the temps below 75 Anacharis is good for this. I don't like it in the long run, but a floating bunch is great for cycling in a tank. Wisteria seems to be a good one as well, the...

I have a low tech tank, to me it was using old school gear (old 15 watt regular hood), dirt under a gravel cap for ferts/co2, and building a "fix it and forget" tank.

He's talking about over driving the XM-L's and you're correct XP-L is a typo. I don't think its that hard of one to make, Crees went XP-G, XM-L.

You should be just fine with the 13 watt 6500K CFL's, Wal mart carries them for around $8 a pair. You can also get straight tube 6500k 12 watt CFLs in the Pet section, they're right at $5 each.
