I had a 54 gallon corner tank for a while, and it was a pain to landscape. I learned that with a corner tank, you kind of have to throw the usual rules of aquascaping out the window. For example,...

Anyone ever heard of "Solarwave" T5s?

My LFS has a bunch of 2 bulb T5 lights with lunar lights for a price that seems really low to me - $100 for a 48" light. They are marked as "Solarwave" lights. I've never heard of this and internet...

Wow, really nice tank and fish. I just got a used 75 from a friend and this is definitely going to provide some inspiration. As to help scaping the new tank, I'm guessing the primary difference is...

Wow, this is a really cool scape. It fits the nature aquarium look, but is different than anything else I've seen. Very unique!

It does get hot, but it's not too much of a problem since I'm keeping the tank warmer than usual for my rams and cardinal tetras.

As for circulation, I did have some issues with the back corner...

No canopy, just a glass top with the Coralife striplights and the clamp on CFL sitting on top. I can't say I've ever seen a canopy for this type of tank, except for DIY ones. They probably exist...

Planning new 10g setup

Since I've had a 10 gallon tank sitting around unused for a while, along with a few bags of aquasoil I never used, I decided that it was a sign to set up another planted tank. This will be my third...

This is a great looking tank. I'm going to set up a low-medium tech 10 gallon soon and am looking for inspiration. Where did you get that light, what brand is it?

This is one of the best 10 gallons I've seen, I really like the scape and the plants. I see you're using 20 watt spiral CFL bulbs, but I'm curious as to what kind of fixture you have it in and how...

This is a fantastic tank. The layout makes it look huge in the pictures - if it didn't have the clamp lights for a size comparison, you could have told me it was a 75. Fascinating livestock, too.

Thanks everyone. I especially like the idea of the tatia catfish. Cute and colorful. I think that's the direction I'll go in, but if anyone has a suggestion not yet mentioned, feel free to chime in.

Some kind of val or large sag would be good, too. It depends on the look you want, but it might match better with your plants than a stem plant would.

Catfish suggestions?

I would agree about long, deep and wide being best. I had a 30 gallon tank that was very difficult to scape well, because it was only 12 inches wide. Now I have a 54 corner bow, and it's so deep that...

I would try a 10,000K bulb. It will be more blue than your pink plant bulb, but still be useful for plants, unlike actinic. It's fine to combine the colors, I think that most people with multiple...
