Not hearing anything either. Both my 2215 and my 2217 made a little noise when they were brand new. That noise went away after a while. I am not using the 2215, but the 2217 is very quiet. A bit of...

I got a FugeRay Planted Plus for my 57g (36x18x18) today, and while I really like the light overall and what it does for the green of my plants, I am not fully sure about my fish's colors. I wish the...

Please recommend a Finnex (or other brand) for my 36x18x18

I'm considering upgrading my 4x24 T5HO for my 57g Oceanic Rimless. The distance from top to substrate is 17", and the tank is 18" wide. Can I use e.g. one Ray 2 or one Fugeray, or would the tank be...

Thanks so much, guys!

I've been pretty happy with mine as well. I am replacing mine after over two years. I should have done it earlier of course - colors and output aren't ideal anymore - but...

Can anyone comment on the longevity/reliability of the LEDs? There are a few Mighty Ray reviews out there that suggest the LEDs will dim considerably over only a few months. Anyone noticed anything...

Are All Giesemann Powerchrome bulbs HO?

This is a bit of a silly question. I bought a custom-made Catalina fixture a few years ago, and it is high time to change the bulbs. I can't for the life of me remember if this was a HO fixture or...

Winterizing faucets

Since there are so many DIY-gifted people on this board, I figured I'd ask my question here.

It was around 20 last night, and at around midnight I suddenly thought, "Hey, I wonder if I should do...

Yeah, you guys are right. I thought about just using one of the replacement plugs like in flukekiller's link, but I should probably just get an electrician add another socket. It's a 1920s home, but...

Get a power cord through furniture?

This is probably the most naive question ever, but I'm not exactly a DYI guy. I'd like to install a pico tank in my bathroom, and I somehow have to get an extension cord through a cabinet that is...

You may just have to accept that they'll be all over the place. In my experience, fish school when they have somewhere to go, which is just not the case in 26g.

Thanks for all your posts. I am always tempted to add guppies or platies, but I don't think they go very well with tetras, aesthetically speaking. It's kinda like preparing a tray of fine Belgian...

I am not sure if this is a weird problem, but all my schooling fish seem to become "lazy" after a while in my tank. I currently have about 20 cardinal tetras and 10 diamond tetras (plus a large pearl...

I got some very nice curly willow for a few bucks at a local flower shop (make sure you get the dried stuff, of course). Could've picked it, but I saw it on my way from lunch back to the office.
