I prefer open top because it encourages me to actually stick my arm in and do maintenance. For some reason, having a lid in the way makes it seem like more of a job, but without one it's like: "Oh,...

If I remember correctly, it takes fish weeks to adjust to even small changes in water chemistry, so dragging it out won't really save them much stress. If you wanted to change the pH faster, you...

Here's an old list I made. (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=1778682) It's meant for a 10g, but many of the fish would also work in a 5g.

Going by the prices on craigslist doesn't give me much info. I have found 55g tanks for $300 with almost nothing included while others are loaded with stuff and only $50. And while those prices may...

Are you testing your water to see how much nitrate it has? For planted tanks you want somewhere around 10-20ppm. You should use your nitrate level as a guide for how much of each fert you need to...

I've done necropsies on fish before and found their skin surprisingly tough. I don't know about frogs, but if they were so delicate that they could be hurt by sharp sand I doubt they would last very...

Pricing Used Tanks?

How much do you think used tanks should be sold for? Should it be a certain percentage of the original price, a certain amount per gallon, or something else? If fish are included, should the price be...

Pressurized CO2 is going to be very expensive unless you get all the parts used, and even then I doubt it would cost less than $100. Try getting some good champagne yeast and two gallon-sized plastic...

Just because it's in the water doesn't mean it's native. I think ghost shrimp actually come from Europe.

That sounds like it would be too deep. You might end up with anaerobic spots (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showpost.php?p=2004223&postcount=18). I would keep it to 2-3" and save the extra sand...
