At 84F you will experience some mild-to-heavy crypt melt.

I find crypts extremely hardy once they are nice and rooted, even though there will be the occasional melt or two. I've let melted leaves...

The curing problem was solely due to incorrect alignment. The silicone holding the bottom piece shifted every so slightly (not enough tape) when it wasn't fully cured. The tank sits level because a...

Rest assured scolley, it seems all that's needed for building your own tank is gluing and measuring. Unless you happen to silicone your fingers to the glass and need to amputate them. :wink:

I had a bichir disappear on me once. Found him fried and charred on top of the power strip a few weeks later. The power strip is actually several feet away from the tank and he had traveled quite a...

I'm running 1.5 wpg and the longest dwarf sag is 4", but it's curved and stays at maybe 2.5" off the substrate.

I think a dwarf sag that grows to 10" would just be a non-dwarf type of Sagittaria....

I have this "problem" on a 10g with a AC 100 (HOB). I don't think it is thick enough in any of our tanks to affect light penetration/gas exchange (wouldn't it help gas exchange by keeping CO2 in?) We...

I've heard that the Pioneers overheat and fry up if they're too overpowered, so I thought I'd play it safe. After the subs ($120), I figure I'd have about $200 left over to buy an amp and the...

Do you plan to keep both lights at one side like that? The effect looks nice but the wood side of the tank feels a bit bare. I, too, am waiting for my dwarf sag to take...

Impressive outline. I like how the lighting is placed to be most intense at the front with the MHs and gradually less intense towards the back, where all the wood is.
