ada aquasoil

  1. Substrate
    Ordered a 9L bag of Aquasoil Amazonia on Amazon (lol) and the bag that came is different than any other bag of Amazonia I've seen. What I'm afraid of is apparently there are counterfeit bags sold out of China and a search revealed that ADA may have even changed their bag design because of it...

    My new tank 5 feet X 1.5 feet X 1.5 feet is ready. Did my water testing, no leaks.

  8. Tank Journals
    My Journey From Reef to Planted... For the better part of the past twenty years, I've kept reef tanks, mostly SPS. As did many, I got my start in aquaria with freshwater tanks. In my case it was 55 gallon tanks with Oscars and Jack Dempsys in my bedroom some 40 years ago. While I was certainly...
