Leaving your lights on all day will kill your fish, stress out your plants, and grow an enormous quantity of algae. Get a timer and set it to something like 8:30AM-12:00PM, then back on again...

Since you won't have a blacked out back, try to stock it with fish that won't spend all their time bumping up against the glass.

Dissolved Organic Carbon Sump?

I started my first dirted tank recently, and it's got me thinking about Diana Walstad. Unfortunately, I loaned out my copy of Ecology of the Planted Aquarium, but I remember that she talked a lot...

At the end of the day, does it really matter what gender your molly is? All your molly needs is to know that you love and support it, no matter what he or she decides to do in life.

The trick is that a real stream bed is large enough to have many not-matching rocks and still look natural. I mean, it's an actual ecosystem, so by definition it's natural-looking. But in the home...
