    Hi all, First planted tank (been in the fish hobby for awhile but always went with the fake plants), got a 36 gallon bowfront (21 inches deep). The kit came with a basic Top Fin LED tube which seems to be pretty bright (I have no way of finding PAR or lumens on this however, tried to look...

    Hey all! I am replacing my ancient 29 gallon tank with a 72 gallon bow front I scored for cheap. I had to reseal it since it had been dry (and still salty...) for years, so please ignore the heavy-handed silicone job, it was my first attempt ever. It's not pretty but it worked. Let it cure for...

    Hey all, I'm hoping you can help point me in the right direction, as I've been doing so much research and keep changing my mind! I currently have a 46 Bowfront (so its a bit deeper than most tanks) that I am looking to light with some LEDs. I am starting with a dry start, but plan on doing DIY...

    Hi there folks, posted for the first time today about a fish issue. Decided I should probably introduce myself, and what better way to do so than with a tank journal! Here is my 46gal dirted, planted tank bowfront set-up. I am using Miracle Grow Organic Choice potting soil. I can't remember the...

    If you have a 72 gallon bow front, and you would like to share your scape here I would greatly appreciate it. I need to be inspired! I have no idea how to scape a bow front.

  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I went to do a water change yesterday on my 48g Bowfront only to notice the water level down about half an inch from the previous day. Then I looked at the base of the tank and saw water! I checked my hoses and airlines as well as the sides of the tank. No signs of leaking there, so I can...
  10. DIY
    I have a 36 gallon tank that I am wanting to fix a broken pane of glass on. It is the back pane so it should be easier to get a piece of replacement glass. But instead of just fixing it I am going to make it better! I checked the glass thickness and it is 3/8in thick. I think that this glass...

    Hey everyone. All I need is lighting (the most important) and I will be ready to start cycling my tank. I've been researching for hours on-line and haven't come to any conclusions yet. My tank will be low-light and will need to be in the 1.5-2.0 wpg range. I'll have a glass top so I'll probably...
