    For the longest time I have wanted some kind of reptile. I wanted anything, snake, turtle, lizard, absolutely anything. I still live with my parents and so any animal request had to go through them, and of course, the answer has always been a resounding 'no'. Finally, however, I have put my foot...

    I have a 29 gallon (I believe it is tall) and I have a "deluxe" Aqueon hood covering the entire top. Only after going about doing research on lighting and planted tanks, I found out the single 17-watt T8 bulb is not sufficient. I recently purchased a Hidden LED System by Marineland to...
