Thank you! I agree on the parva splitting - when I first put it in, the roots were gigantic and the plants so "together" that I was afraid of breaking something. I will probably spread it out more...

New light arrived! Really surprised at the shipping time - I was expecting a week at the least, but it came in 2 days. Awesome.

Woke up this morning to find 2 bacopa stems and a...

7/24/13:

Nothing has really changed, added 2 more bacopa stems just to have somewhere to put them. They are, unfortunately, also maddeningly curvy, but I guess I'll have to deal with it.

Thanks! I try to do a 50% water change every week. I'm always afraid of sucking them up, but so far it hasn't happened.

When I bought the amano, I went to the LFS with the intention of buying 3-4...

Yervor's Eclipse 3 (Lots of pictures, and words.)

Hey all. This is my first-tank-ever, and I'm pretty proud of how far it's come. Like I said in my Spec journal, this is mostly for personal use so I remember what I did and how much I've improved.

Hi, is this tank still up and running? Looks fantastic so far.

Are you using the Fluval Mini CFL? What are you dosing? I'd like to order one for my Spec but I'm afraid the algae will go crazy. Any...

Yervor's Fluval Spec (Lots of pictures, and words.)

Hi all. I mostly lurk around here, but I thought it would be good to start some journals (for both tracking and learning purposes).

I'm pretty much a total beginner when it comes to actual...

After lurking for way too long, I'm going to go ahead and say: this is amazing. Of the many planted aquariums I've seen, this is the one with equally stellar beauty and achievability (beginner...

Thanks for the replies, everyone!

@Trickerie: What do you mean by dirt substrate? Is it something I can only buy at a fish store, or just regular old dirt? And do you know what the easiest way to...

A professor of mine was recently given an old hex tank. What do we do with it?

(Sometimes "hex" is used to describe multiple sides, so this one has six.)

It's about 23 gallons, 20 inches tall. All he owns so far is the filter and some pool sand at the bottom. Being a...

I just used plastic regular craft mesh, but unfortunately, it doesn't sink very well, so I would advise against it. Whatever mesh you do use, cut two sheets into the shape you want, and then sow...

Excess Java Moss?

I just bought some moss from my LFS. I tied portions of it to a large stone in my aquarium. I still have A LOT left, though. What do I do with it? It's just kind of sitting in its container at the...

Identify these rocks for me?

Okay, so. Total noob here. I have an old 3 gal Eclipse tank. The light included is a T5 6 watt fluorescent. (Someone explain to me what T5, T8, etc. means?) Using the WPG rule, this is 2 WPG, but I...
