    This will be my third Walstad tank build, doing this with my two sons. We did a 29 gallon and 20 gallon so far. I posted pics of those in the lounge section. I'll add a direct link later if I can manage. The 29 gallon turned out great, the 20 gallon less so. It just never took off. Current...

    I just purchased a new 125g and am super stoked about getting it setup! This will be my largest planted tank endeavor by far (largest truly planted tank so far is 29g). I'm planning to keep this a medium-high tech tank. No crazy high maintenance dutch style setup (I'll leave that for the...

    Hi all, Im currently cycling a low tech 125g, currently just the hardscape so that the wood leaches off everything its got. Its 24inch deep and 66inch long. It is almost 13 year old, and has housed large oscars and similarly boisterous fish which has left it pretty scratched up inside. This is...

    Last night stayed up unthinkably late in order to finish planting these guys. A huge thank you to Trinsfish.com for the hook up on the plants. They definitely over delivered with great healthy plants. Well here is the set up. 125g Tank Fluval Fx6 Canister Sera Flore Inline Reactor GLA Co2...

    I was thinking about going with the dry start method for 3 or 4 weeks on my new 125 gallon tank, but it seems most journals I've seen are for much smaller tanks, more like 10 or 20 gallons, and a 55 that didn't go well. Is there something about the dry start method that makes it unsuitable for...

    I am new to this site, but have kept tanks for most of my life. As a kid I had neons, frogs, and guppies as most kids do in a 5 gallon octigonal plastic tank. I now have a 55 Gallon and a 125H Gallon. I have had the 55 for about 18 years and it has seen many a fish/location. I am military and...

    Bought in January in bad shape for $400. Built a new basic stand and polished all the acrylic until it shined with a Novus 3-step polishing system. Was going to build into the planted tank of my dreams, but lost my job, and so plans changed. Is currently serving as the worlds largest betta tank...

    I have a 125 gallon aquarium that is 72" long and 22" high. I purchased a 72" QUAD Odyssea t5 HO light thinking I was going to do a heavily planted aquarium but I decided to get earth-eater fish and a heavily planted aquarium is not possible. I have attached a link to the fixture so you get a...

    So I'd figure I'd share my first attempt at a planted tank. While I've had different fish tanks all my life, I decided to start this planted tank. Before I had an 55 Gal sand tank with Angels, Placos, Tiger Barbs, and gourami's. My buddy had a 125 Gal tank that he never cleaned and his wife...

    Will 2 of these lights be sufficient for a 125 gallon heavily planted tank with pressurized c02 and dosing ferts? It comes out to 2.496WPG but I guess that measurement is pretty much useless now. Also what other ferts should I dose besides excel? I'm trying to "pimp out" my 125 gallon tank and...

    So I've had a small 10gal planted tank for a couple years, but it was just kind of thrown together and I wanted to build something much more "designed" but natural... So welcome my new 125 gallon planted tank :D Just wanted to keep an ongoing record of the tank and progress so I figured I'd...

    I just bought a 125 gallon tank. My intention is to put my 5 aquatic turtles inside, but the bottom has been repaired. It still has the warning label about not drilling it because it's tempered glass. It had 2 hairline fractures in separate corners, that the aquarium store told him to seal...

    So right now I'm looking for a 125i+ gallon :). Right now I've come down to some similar tanks. The main difference is their silicone (other than the 2 inch difference). The 125 (72x18x22) I'm looking at has clear/bluish silicone. On the other hand, the 135 (72x18x24) has black silicone...

    Hello All, This tank is in a relative's house, and when I was a teenager I took it upon myself to set it up as a low-tech planted tank. I saw discus in my LFS, and well, the rest was history. I have had three "batches" over time, the first of which I lost from hole in the head, the second I...

    Ok, so my 125 gallon tank developed a small crack in the top of it. The good news is that after calling the manufacturer they are going to let me have the replacement tank for a few weeks before returning the broken one to them. The bad news is that i can't really have both tanks up in the...
