To add to what Bert said, Art was the founder, owner, and admin of APC up until about two years ago. At that time he got to busy to continue and sold the site to an internet computer company who...

You're smart to get the lighting figured out first. It's the most expensive system and making changes later isn't always easy. Your light intensity also determines what sort of setup you'll end up...

If you have a tight-fitting lid, it's pretty hard to beat marble hatchetfish. I wouldn't try to keep fewer than 4 or 5 though.

What are you using for substrate? I've only been lucky enough to cause GW in mature tanks when I've been foolish enough to give the substrate a huge stir.

It sort of depends on the personality of the angelfish. I think fishscale's advice is pretty accurate. Putting young cardinals in a tank of full-grown angels is doomed to fail. I have kept neons...

Nope - No confusion here. I don't know much about plenty of things when it comes to fish ID, but I'm 100% certain these are Crossocheilus siamensis.

When it comes to fish, the biggest difference with FW is that most species do better in large groups. With tetras, it's virtually mandatory. If you're wanting to keep smaller tetras such as neons...

I have 3x150W 8,000K MH's and 4x39 T-5's over my 180g tank. The MH's are only on for about 5 hrs per day, keeping growth rates and nutrient demands somewhat manageable. This provides plenty of...
