65 gallon

  1. Fish
    This is my first large aquarium. I have not even bought or cycled it, however I'm looking for some inspiration regarding what type of fish to get to ensure compatibility as well to ensure I set the tank up correctly (parameters/décor). Below is what I was thinking about stocking. Please let me...

  3. Low Tech Forum
    Hello all, I've kept fish for awhile now, but have only used a flow over filter and standard fluorescent light, much like the ones you get in a kit.

I wonder if assassin snails would be a good idea because I do have small shrimp. And I don't know if I want a...
  7. Lighting
    Hi -- I am brand new to the planted tank and have been reading about lighting for low tech planted tanks for a few days now and I am still unsure what to do. What 36" light would provide the best solution if I want to grow plants and not use CO2? Someone at an LFS told me to get the Fluval P36...

  10. Algae
    I need help. I've had aquariums for years with no major problems. But I can't figure this one out. I'm hoping someone can enlighten me. I have a 65 gallon, tall, freshwater planted tank. It's been set up since May 2008. It's relatively heavily planted, with maybe a dozen fish. Fish and plants...
