If you go with the Current Satellite LED+, I recommend getting two. I'm running one and a Marineland Double Bright (had it first) on my 55 gallon and I believe I'm in the medium light category. ...

The light needed to grow corals is very strong in the blue spectrum (called actinic). Plants like full spectrum light. I'm not sure you're going to be happy with this light.

I think it depends on the lights you're coming from and the lights you're going to. When I first went LED, I didn't notice much of a difference on my 55 gallon aquarium, mainly because they weren't...

In my experience, some sort of floating plant matter is just part of the deal with planted tanks. That can be exacerbated with plants that are constantly disturbed or that are delicate, though. ...

For Dannyul, my first question is why you are dosing Excel if you're using pressurized CO2. I have Starogyne repens in my aquarium and it's doing pretty well. I don't get fast growth, but it is...

White spots usually mean one of two things, ick or a fungus. With ick, you'll usually see small white spots on the fins first.

My first thought was Congo Tetra, but that' not it. Now, I'm thinking Gold Tetra. Could also be Buenos Aries Tetra.

To me, pool filter sand is perfect. It's small enough that you know it's sand (and not like a fine gravel or something), but large enough that it sinks quickly and easily. That way it doesn't get...

If that's the look you're going for, I'd use pool filter sand. Find you closest pool supply store and buy it from them. The most common national chain is Leslie's. Pool filter sand is light...

From what I've read, dwarf baby tears requires high light and pressurized CO2. You may be able to get by without the pressurized CO2, but not the light requirement. One LED+ light is low light. ...

If you go with sand, avoid play sand. It can be used, but it takes a lot of work to clean. And in my opinion, it doesn't look very nice. Pool filter sand, however, is great. It is much lighter in...

Those are slow growers, so they will often get algae on the leaves in higher light. It's also probably adjusting since it just got moved. I've found that anubias grow best when left alone in low...

That does look like a female convict. I didn't recognize it since it is so light colored, but that could be due to the stress of being at a pet store.
