    I'm going to be buying and setting up a 90 gallon aquarium next month and am a bit stumped on lighting choices for it that are available in Canada. Finnex lights are not sold here (I think due to it not meeting some type of safety regulation) so I'm unable to get the most highly recommended...

    Hello! This is my first post so have mercy on my soul... I am currently in the process of setting up a 90 gal planted (low to medium light plants) tank. The tank is standard 48" x 18" x 24" and will eventually house mainly clown loaches and java fern, swords, anubias', vallisneria, etc. I will...

    Hello all, My name is Curt and I am a beginner of planted tanks and continue to learn as I upkeep my 30 Gallon tank. I have just purchased a 90 Gallon Tank and stand for $100, my plan is to set this up as a planted tank with Co2. With the new tank I am going to take my time do a lot of...
  4. DIY
    I bought a used 6 foot long 90 gallon tank that one of the previous owners removed the rim from. The last owner kept turtles in it (low water level I assume) and he said the guy before him had it as a reef tank full of water without a rim. Well, this last owner also said it was a 125 gallon, and...
  5. Aquascaping
    Fellow scapers, This is my 90 gallon tank. I have slowly but surely filled it up with plants and I want to add a group of one more. As you can see I left a large spot open in the mid right area. Since the tank is a mountain/rock scape, it really looks best with low growing carpet/midground...

    Hey guys, This is my situation. I am going to purchase a 90 gallon aquarium and I have been trying to figure out a good LED light that will grow plants in the low to medium lighting spectrum. around 25-40 micromoles PAR would be ideal. I want to purchase only one light and I will probably be...

    Ok, so this tank originally started off as a dirt tank almost 3 years ago. I ran two 70w metal halides on it for a long time, and then switched to a single 250w metal halide, and then back to the 2x70w configuration. The halides were great for growing plants, and the shimmer effect was awesome...

    I have a low tech 90 gallon tank. It has been established for 11 months with relatively few problems. I had a little algae here and there, mostly hair and green spot, but it was minimal. Plant growth was very good, but they didn't pearl (no surprise). All of a sudden, after about 10 months, I...
  10. Equipment
    So I found a 90 Gal with stand for a great price (just about a $ per gallon). I am really excited! Wine bottle is for a size reference. Dimensions 48"L x 18"D x 25"T. Overflow to a 55 Gal sump is the plan. I am going to try the HD 6 bulb T-8 fixture for lighting.

    I've had this aquarium since mid november I think just waiting to get it started. I was finally able to make it to a TSC (the nearests is a 3 hour drive) to pick up some substrate and get the tank started cycling. Since my husband hates how much money I spend on my hobby this is going to be a...

    I have a 90 gal tank that I just set up. I presently have 4 t-5 48 inch bulbs. Two are color max 6,700k and two are day light 6,700k. Is that enough light for a high light tank? :fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1::fish1:

    Hey all, I recently purchased a 90 gallon acrylic aquarium with dimensions 60”x18”x20” (LxWxH). I’ll be stocking angelfish and a few other random community fish. I want a setup that lets me grow most high light plants that are easy to acquire. I’ll have CO2 going as well. The aquarium came...

    Here are a few pictures of my newly set up 90 gallon. It has been up and running for about weeks now. The Overflow and wet/dry came with the tank, and I’m borrowing the canister filter from a friend for now. I’m still waiting on CO2 to come in and will be making a reactor. In the last...

    How much light would a 90 gallon heavily planted need? I would like to have as much light as I can without the necessity of Co2 or ferts. The tank will have MTS soil. I am also trying to keep it cheap- don't need anything fancy and could try DIY if it would really lower the cost (if it can be...

    Hello everyone! First attempt at an aquarium journal, as well as an aquarium in general :icon_smil Been doing a lot of research these past few months and still have to pick up a few more pieces of equipment in addition to the ones I have ordered and are on the way! But so far this what I'm...

    Hello everyone!~ I've been browsing craigslist lately looking for a 30 gallon tank or so. I haven't kept any fish since middle school, and even then I wasn't super knowledgeable. Last week, I set up a 20 gallon hex at my office for the lobby. But today while I was poking around craigslist I...
