Pool filter sand is pretty decent and pretty cheap. It's not entirely white, has a bit of a tannish hue to it.

Try to find the a coralife normal output instead of a high output. I believe the HO will necessitate CO2 but the NO shouldn't as long as you fertilize regularly. I have a 48' NO over my 55, raised...

It could be your lighting if it's really bright. When my lights are on my tetras stay in the mid to lower area of the tank but when the lights go off they're always near the top.

He might just be adjusting, a lot of fish are shy and don't eat for the first several days.

You shouldn't keep tetras singular or in small groups, they'll get depressed and die.

I would try to go back to something marginally similar to what you have in the first picture. The biggest problem I see is that both of your scapes look extremely planned, it makes them less...

I would expect most of those leaves to die off, once they start to go there's not a lot you can do to save them.

Well, I've added root tabs and cut back my lighting to six hours. I've cleaned off as much algae as I possibly could. I'm hopeful that I''ll start seeing the remaining algae retreat in the coming...

I feel like the flourite under the substrate should provide enough nutrients to negate the use of root tabs.

My issue with Co2 isn't a price issue, it's a maintenence and complication issue. I...

The tank was set up mid January of this year, immediately planted and stocked. I've yet to have anything die and all the fish are showing healthy activity. The stock consists of six Cories, twelve...

Mine's been flaring at his reflection for over a year. So he's either too dumb to realize it's not another fish or he just likes to look at himself.

Plant the tops, once you snip them in half the bottoms struggle for a bit to create new growth. They will eventually grow but not as well as the tops would.

I don't think you really need to nuke it, that's mostly to make it sink. As long as you can keep it submerged it shouldn't matter. The more you heat it, the less nutritional it is. I put a slice of...

Yeah that's what I thought. I've got my Java fern just barely in the sand and they seem to be doing fine. I've had a few leaves die off but I chocked that up to it being a new tank.

I have java moss, I got it free so why not? It's filled in and fluffed up a bit more since I took this picture two weeks ago.
