    Getting back into the hobby after a 5 year hiatus with a bang! Like all great decisions, I impulse bought this 40g breeder at the Petco $/gal sale. I had a low-tech tank back when I was a much more poor student but, with more space in my house and (this time) access to a car, I figured I’d go...

    Hello All. Today I'm hoping to get some of the more experienced hobbyists to take a look at my tank/lights/plants/ferts and throw me some general advice or tips. Namely, I'm trying to figure out if my lighting will allow for certain plants. Setup: Been running steady for about 6 months 45...

    I'm setting up a small breeding and grow out rack and would like some advice/thoughts on using a fluval 406 as the return pump. The rack will be 4x 20 longs above with a 40 breeder sump. The 406 will sit just below the 40B - so water will siphon into it. The 20 longs will be above the canister...

    Hey everyone, I have a 40 breeder that has been set up for about a year and a half (although I moved about 9 months ago). It is pretty well planted, although I probably wouldn't call it 'dense'. It has various anubias, various crypts, Java moss, Java fern, temple plant, and a stemmed plant that...

    I moved recently, and it was apparent that I would not be able to keep my five tanks running (two display, one quarantine, one for breeding, one for shrimp). So I decided to combine my two display tanks (10 and 15 gallons into a single 40 breeder and repurpose the 15 gallon as a shrimp tank. 10...

    My first journal! I call this scape Octopus. The scape is about 8 weeks young. The Manzanita branches look like a reaching Octopus. The center of the round arch on the left is pretty close to the vertex of the Golden Ratio. The overall scape follows the shell pattern from right to left. The...

    The time has come for me to let this go. I've had the setup for about 6 months now, though it was used when I got it. For the most part, it's pretty solid, though I would highly recommend resealing the tank. There is a pinhole leak a few inches from the top frame, and while I've done a patch job...

    Hi all. I recently upgraded to a 16" high 40 breeder for my two goldfish, from a 28 gallon 18" high. On the old tank I had an AH supply 55W 24" fixture. I've never dosed CO2, but I run a planted refugium on reverse cycle and I've always thought that maybe the two tanks dose eachother with CO2...
