    I purchased a Landen 90P (36x19x19") used off Facebook and unfortunately it has some minor damage... I have not tried to fill it yet, but I do think it will hold water. However, I doubt the structural integrity of the tank. Here's a link to a google drive with photos of the damage. It's the...

    Hi guys. I just noticed that my old glass heater cracked somehow. A lot of corrosion developed over the last day or two since water started slowly leaking in. When I tried to further examine it, the bottom piece of glass full of water and suspended corroded material fell out. White colored...

    I need a new regulator. I have a post body and tank, I also have little money. The story behind it, for comic relief: At the beginning of the year, I bought a regulator from a guy off craigslist for $30 who said it worked fine. It has never worked fine. In fact, it has worked everything but...

    A friend of mine was trying to help me get my old eclipse 3 to work, and accidentally unscrewed the light fixture. Water got into it and now it's shorted out. I can't seem to find a replacement either, so I was wondering if there was some other solution I could try. I'm considering having an...

    Soooooo today during my weekly water change, something bad happened. Every few water changes I clean out my filter and today was that day. So the filter (now clean) was sitting by my sink, and I walk by to grab something from my closet and trip on the cord. The filter flies and ends up smashing...

    Have had a set of lights with 6x24w HO lights for maybe three years on a marine setup but now it keeps blowing the whole power board every time i plug it in to a socket. If I can fix it I would use it for a planted setup. Can anybody please help!!!

    For some strange reason a piece of my glass canopy broke off. I heard some strange noice but didn't see anything wrong, but later I looked at the tanks and a piece of glass was laying on the bottom. I still should the receipt but I'm puzzled as to why it broke, there was nothing on it except the...
  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I picked up a 29 gallon with a really nice stand for $50 off of craigslist last night. The stand is really nice, but the tank is pretty old, it was built in 1994, the sticker is still on it haha. Does anyone have experience resealing a tank? Is it risky or is it something that if you do it...

    Ok so I had a 120gallon tank in my apartment and it decided to come apart at the seams and spew water everywhere. I managed to save about half the water and all the fish by tying a rope around the top of the tank as tight as i could and then I stuck a piece of doweling between the glass and the...

    So, while I'm waiting for the big tank to grow in an emersed setup, I figured I would use my CO2 cylinder that's just sitting there and hook it up to my two 10gal tanks that were previously on DIY setups. I had everything setup and I turned on the CO2. Didn't see any bubbles so I cranked the...

    Hey all, Long time no post. Recently one of my lightbulbs on my Coralife 48" PC light fixture died and when I tried to pull the bulb out it would not move. So I pulled harder and the plastic endcap started to crumble and break into pieces. To make a long story short, now I need to get some...
