    Hi Darkblade,

    My formatting of that post was very intentional - I wanted the description of the issue was above each picture. Putting everything in one single post down makes the thread just too long.

    As an alternative, do you suggests embedding the pictures directly in the post?

    I'm unable to reply to other people's posts. Can you please tell me why and let me know what I need to do to fix this?
    Thank you!

    Your nano tank looks awesome! How many gallons is without substrate. Did you buy it as a kit. I'm looking for one about 9-10 gallons. Can't see any fish in the tiny pic. Maybe you could post another one that can be enlarged. I'm in the Seattle area and I assume I could buy this at a LFS, but haven't seen anything like this. p.s. do you use CO2? Thanks in advance for sharing more info. Ginny

    Hi, I really like your tank, and I think it looks nice. If you don't mind me asking, what are the specs of your lights? And what plants do you have?

    I was reading a comment of yours, since you mentioned using DIY CO2, and I plan on using it as well. With your CO2, do you use an airstone attached to the tubes, or a diffuser? Any advise you can give me on that? Is using the airpump the best way to avoid excessive CO2 at night? Thanks.

    i am brand new to forum... so please excuse any etiquette fails. i have just a little experience w/ my planted tank...gory personal details..blah..blah..neglected tank..starting over. Had pretty good success w/ african cichlids..50 gal. tank..standard gravel..4' 4 bulb t5 yeast co2 starting over with a few plants at a time..a few baby cichlids at a time( five at present)and 3 plecos. need suggestions on beginning diy co2 again and keeping a balance with co2/oxygen/relatively few fish to feed plants. Cost is important of course. Will add more fish, plants,hdwr. as money allows.
