  3. Low Tech Forum
    Hello, I have a few questions I want to ask regarding lighting in "low tech" aquariums. In a situation where you use no CO2 or ferts (I guess I can use ferts I just dont know how safe that would be since I have newts) is low light (15-30par) the only safe choice? I wanted around 50 par but it...

    Picked up a 3 gallon (roughly) for my Mom on her birthday as she was enamored by my dwarf puffers. Nice little cube has a little HOB and pretty well planted to boot. Grabbed the Finnex Fugeray Planted+ as she wanted to grow "pretty plants" and quickly found out that was overkill... lol The...

    I'm having persistent problem with brown diatoms in a mature planted tank (1+ year). I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, if it's a in-balance with fertilizers, NO3, PO4 or too much light? Majority of the diatoms are on the sand and rocks (which i don't mind too much) but it's also on...
