First off, thanks Bluek24a4. And especially for the username compliments. Was/am a big fan of Mitch.

Anyway, I haven't updated this in quite some time, and that's mostly because not a ton has...

Well alright, the tank is up and running. I finally got the filter, though it looks like a bit of a mess since it seems it didn't come with any suction cups for the spray bar and inlet. I'll have to...

Ha, yes, most of the people who visit our apartment care a bit more about what's in the right side of that photo than the left.

Thanks, I'm hoping the frogs like their home. And in the salty tank I've got an army of snails, but apparently they're getting fat and lazy.

Anyway, with regards to my planted aquarium, which...

Hello to TPT. I've haven't posted or been terribly active on this board for sort of a while, not to say I've been a particularly noticeable absence. But I'm not out of the hobby, so don't you worry....

Well first, I would like to point out that with two t5HO bulbs, you're running high light on that tank. High output bulbs really do put out more light than a lot of people think, and excessive light...

Oh, I definitely agree. I dunno how scary it would have actually been otherwise, but after showing the 'demon' guy it was just hard to take seriously. That's pretty much why I love it so much though....

In my experience trimming DHG doesn't do much one way or the other in regards to the rate at which it spreads. It also never seemed to negatively affect the plant, so for those asking I'd say trim...

I used it in my 29 to cap topsoil, and everything worked well for me. I'll admit that I *very* rarely tested my PH, but my tap was around 7.6 and fairly hard, and I had no visible issues with fish or...

Cloudiness from a mud substrate takes forever to go away, in my experience. I'd definitely go ahead and run the filters, and I'd suggest doing big water changes to hurry it along. Just be careful not...

In one tank I used to, just due to baby shrimps. The rest no. I never noticed a problem due to not having a prefilter, so I wouldn't say it's at all necessary on an average planted tank.

The two are pretty comparable, and the fact that they share most tank sizes have led some people to claim they're likely both produced in the same place and re-branded. I don't know about that, but...

Blyxa almost always melts when it's planted in a new tank, trust me, so that in itself isn't much to worry about. Regarding roots, it's true it's often sold and shipped without any, and can regrow...

It seems to me that if you're looking to avoid an ADA tank due to price, your best bet is going to be either a Mr. Aqua or a GLA tank. Both have options over 30 gallons for under $200, though that's...

Ha, she's roughly 5' 6.5". But I think mostly it helps in giving a better idea of the relative sizes of the tank and stands.

48" seems a bit high to me, speaking just aesthetics-wise, rather than stability. My vote if you want something still relatively tall would be to drop it to like 40". But, I mean, it is all personal...

For the mini L I have set up right now, I built a relatively large custom stand to accommodate a 20lb CO2 tank and a sump, making it about 3' tall. That also...
