    Hi, everyone. I currently have a 40 Breeder with a Marineland Penguin 200 filter. The temperature is somewhere between 75 and 78, and I'd say the tank is moderately planted. Ph is around 7.5 and the water is on the harder side. Soon I will probably look for a way to lower the hardness. The tank...

    Return of the mack! Well I finally closed on a house and moved in about a month ago. Time to resurrect the 40B! House is a raised ranch. We have a large finished room downstairs that I'll be putting the tank in. It's across from a little office space and adjacent to the tv area, so it'll get a...

    I've started a new Walstad-style 40 breeder. I'll try to keep this top post updated with the current specs and inhabitants, and keep discussion and updates below. This is my third tank, but the first one with a PT thread. Fair warning: I'm a law student, as is my partner, so updates are likely...

    Hello all, I'm in the planning phase on a Rack of 4 - 40B tanks. The tanks will be for growing plants. I'm going to be running high co2 (pressurized) and dosing EI. I'm struggling with what I should use for lighting. I want high lighting and at the cheapest cost. I was originally planning on a...
  7. Substrate
    I'm planning to dirt my new 40b and cap with Black Diamond... I was wondering how much MGOPM I should pick up.. I've never gone dirt before, so I don't really know how deep I should plan for substrate and cap.

    I’m currently rockin’ a 29 gallon tank. I purchased a 40 gallon breeder in the Petco sale. I’m going to replace the 29 with the 40b. The more I get into planted tanks, the less I like the dimensions of the 29. It’s got no depth! I don’t want to do both tanks at the same due to lack of space and...

  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So like most people on TPT, I took advantage of the Petco $1 per gallon sale and got myself a 40 gallon breeder tank. I currently have a 29 gallon tank that's been up and running for almost 2 years. It's my only tank, and I don't really want more than one main tank at a time. Sidenote: I also...

    All of this is my girlfriends fault. I became intrigued by her little betta named Jupe Jupe. It found great joy in squeezing underneath the tiny gap of an overturned piece of decor. I thought it was both amazing and sad, so I went to Petco and bought him a new double wide crib. It turns out...

  13. Substrate
    I've been reading and reading on the different substrates and I have a good idea of the basic pros and cons, but I cannot for the life of me decide which to go with. I'd love to hear anyone's input and experience. Here is my plan and equipment: 40g breeder Eheim 2217 with in-line Hydor heater...

    I am going to be moving in June and I might want to setup a bigger tank. I have a 40b that is sitting empty and I could use that. The room it is going to go in is really long and narrow so I was thinking about using it as divider tank. Setting it up like a peninsula. I don't have a lot of money...
  15. DIY
    I got a 40 gallon breeder and I have been thinking about taking of the rim and bracing it with glass pieces. I do not know if a 40b really needs it. I have a 29 gallon that is rimless and it is fine. Anybody have any guides on doing this?

    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...

    This tank has been set up for about a month or so. It's cycled, but still has some "new tank" to it. So it's a little rough around the edges, I don't think I'm really going to touch it for a couple of months to let everything settle. This is also the first glass tank that I've had (other than my...

    So my friend is giving me her 40g tank, because her bearded dragon died and she's not getting another one. I'd love to have this tank set up and planted, but she doesn't know if it was bought as a reptile tank or a fish tank bc she got it used. Is there a difference in the two? Will it still be...
