I recently was at the LFS with my wife, which is a pretty rare occurrence. I brought her over to the discus tanks to show her a nice specimen, and she saw the price on all the discus. "You pay that...

This happened to me with my HC. I had a great lush carpet of it, then the whole thing just detached gradually and I had to rip it out. I restarted with glosso.

I think it happens eventually, but...

I think it's basically everything-bubbles. That is, all the gasses that are released in your tank get caught in the surface film as they rise. Mine come and go. You can get a surface skimmer or...

Small chains of bubbles are not pearling, at least that's not usually what people call it.

Pearling is O2. Those small chains of many bubbles being released rapidly from one part of a plant are...

I don't know what the history of your tank has been, but I originally planned mine as an aquascape primarily. I had a bunch of different kinds of small fish in there.

I run two Eheim 2017's in my 65 g. Two is nice because then you get output flow from each side, and when you need to clean out the media every month or two, you still have the other one to keep the...

How do you keep various wires etc. in the tank?

A few weeks ago the probe for my temperature controller somehow fell out of the tank. The controller then thought room temp was tank temp, and started trying to compensate by heating things up. When...

There are two different things here I think people are confusing.

I don't do EI, but unless it's known for making your tank incredibly susceptible to algae (and I don't think it is), it shouldn't be an issue.

Increased growth (higher CO2) = shorter plant life?
