This tank uses two 18 watt spiral flourescent bulbs. The WPG rule doesn't apply to small tanks, but thanks for the kind words!

This journal is overdue for an update! Now that I'm back in school, I really don't have time for tank maintenance. So, I decided a while back to make this tank a dry setup. I pulled most of the...

If this is a show tank, I'd go for the ADA. If you like the looks of black over the more natural brown color, then sand is obviously cheaper. What's the purpose of this tank for you?

Well, somehow I've missed this thread until now. This is an excellent journal, and exceptional detail in the build phases. The hardscape turned out top notch to say the least! I've been thinking...

I was thinking that same thing as I was scrolling down in regards to regenerative poo. The only way I've been able to control clado is with meticulous tank cleanliness. If dead debris builds up, or I...

I sent a pm, but basically, yes I'd shade the lights, and probably increase the flow a bit. You don't need a whirlpool, but good steady flow is best. :thumbsup:

I see algae in your future! I've got a feeling that with you cutting back on flow and not supplementing Co2 that you will likely grow more algae than plants. You can likely use your setup with the...

Bubbles vary in size. Comparing bubble rates between two tanks is like two people comparing how much their different cars cost to fill with gas.

You will probably need to clean the inside, where the water goes through. If your filter tubes get a nasty brown film inside like mine do, eventually this will build up inside the diffuser too, and a...

I needed to clean mine about once a month, at that point the mist was notably less fine. When it was clean, the mist was like a cloud coming out of the spraybar, which is what I like. I broke it when...

Eh, I don't know and don't have time during finals week to study up on algae. Might be something I research during winter break! Thanks for the input guys!
