    It has been a very, very long time since I have had a proper tank. I had honestly forgotten that I even had an account here until I tried to make a new one (whoops!). I have had a few tanks over the years with varying degrees of success (and a few colossal failures), but this is the biggest...

    I've been looking around and didn't find an immediate answer, is the Finnex Ray2 enough to grow high light plants in an 18" deep aquarium? It's 29gal, 30W18H12D, and I have the 30inch Ray2. I'd love to plant cabomba if I can. Thanks!

    I picked up a 29g yesterday on CL, and it came with a fixture for a single 24" T8 tube. Is it going to be possible to get decent growth from any T8 bulb in this set up, or do I have to upgrade? I know I could stick with REALLY low light plants, but I'd rather not be so limited. Low tech tank (I...

    I have a 29 gallon set up and ready to stock. It is currently housing a 3" bristlenose pleco. I want to add some rummy nose tetra and (eventually) a GBR. Only problem is that I dont know how many rummy nose to get. I was thinking 6-8, what do you guys think? Also, do you guys think this tank...

    Hi guys! Complete n00b here. I'm starting my first planted tank in the coming months and have been lurking and reading and researching so that I can (hopefully) avoid costly mistakes. I would ultimately like something low-maintenance. I'm heading to Petco tonight to take advantage of the...

    Hey everyone, I have now ordered some stuff for pressurized co2. I don't need to be told that I should have gotten something else or that it isn't good quality, I just want to know if I will be able to now add co2 to my tank. I am getting an adapter for paintball tanks so I can feel more...

    UPDATE: 11/5/11 Alright guys, I have taken your opinions best I could and put together some new ideas. I really do appreciate the help you have previously provided as it helped me get a better eye for proportioning the layout and not making it too messy or crowded. I narrowed it down to 4...

    OK, so I'm new to planted tanks, though I have been keeping fish for a number of years, and figured I'd give real plants a try. I have a 29 gallon (L30 x W12 x H18) that i was hoping to use. The thing is that it isn't very wide, so there's not a whole lot of room for increasing plant height...

    Is it uncommon for people to mount multiple fixtures onto one tank? I'm looking into buying a 29G and its hard to find a 30" fixture thats capable of around 96Watts, so would it be unheard of for me to mount 2 48 Watt fixtures on there? Or is that just crazy talk? It'd be about 3.3 WPG --> I...

    Okay, so I'm looking into buying a 29g and I definitely want to plant it heavily. A lot of the plants I like require high light so I'm thinking 3+ watts per gallon? It a Current USA 30" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x24W 10K/Freshwater Its only 48 watts each, so I was thinking what if I...

    Hi guys. I have a 29 gallon planted tank and I'm trying to find a good carpet. Currently, I have a 2 x 24 w Nova SLR fixture over it. I was wondering if this was enough light and what kind of plants would be good for carpeting this tank fairly fast. I was also considering upgrading to a MH...

    My old filter broke last night, in a long string of drama with this tank. So i need reccomendations on what filter to get and where i can aquire it. I would like to overfilter a bit as it's for goldfish. Help?
  19. Lighting
    It's looking like my 29 is going to be moving, and with that i would really love to upgrade the lighting when i do this, possibly hanging/high enough above the tank to have an open top with floating plants. I'm completely clueless about lighting issues, so any suggestions about what kind of...
