I started with a 2215 on my 55. I upgraded to a 2217. You definitely want more flow on such a big tank. I also used 80lbs of Eco Complete and that gave me a couple inches of substrate. If I were to...

Don't think that's a female. If I'm not mistaken, females are completely colorless.

Question Is My Tank Cycled?

My tank has been flooded for about a month now. I was doing a fishless cycle by throwing some food in the tank. The ammonia was never really THAT high, but it was measurable. After about two weeks...

Cardinal Tetras

I'm stocking my new 55 gallon. I'm starting off slow with about 7 RCS and 10 Cardinal Tetras. They haven't been in there long, but I've noticed that the Tetras aren't schooling. Is this something...

Has the DHG started coming in faster now that its flooded? I'm about a month in to my DSM with DHG and I'm only seeing a few runners at this point. I've been thinking about just flooding it and going...

Question What To Supplement My Eco-Complete With

Thanks, OVT!
