I don't use the ice cube method myself, I've just heard of people doing that. I use the bottles and I put them directly in my tank. If I used a sump I would put them there I suppose. I'm only using a...

Also starting with lower intensity lighting always gives room to increase the intensity. Starting with too much and trying to work your way down is difficult because algae already exists. I'd wipe...

Everybody always recommend low temps, but truthfully I have a whole bunch of berried females right now and a growing population and my temps are in the mid to high 70s all summer.

The problem you'll run into a lot is that terrestrial plant fertilizer packages contain ammonia. Other than that, it's just about finding the right proportions which is tough. You want roughly 5:1 to...
