    Hello all, My apologies if this topic has already been covered but I have done some research and come up empty. I JUST received my first green tiger lotus from Buceplant.com in the mail today and I'm pretty confused. My dwarf lily came attached to a bulb and is doing very well so I figured I...

    Please help! I recently received 2 crinum natans bulbs and I've had them in my substrate for almost 2 weeks now, when I received them they both had 2 short leaves but after a few days they kind of melted off (?) the top part of the bulbs are exposed somewhat because I was under the impression...

    The title says it all... For best plant growth; two T5 6700k bulbs or one 6700k and one Colormax? This is for my 36 Watt Aqueon 30" Dual Fixture. Reason for asking is I'm unsure if this light is adequate enough for my 20 gal long with DIY co2 and EI ferts. Having algae problems and Dwarf...

    Hi. I'm new to this forum and am just setting up a planted tank, so I need some help finding the right lights. I found a website that seems reputable enough and it recommends having 1 watt per 2 litres for strong light that will assist in lush plant growth. So that would work out at roughly two...

    Hey guys and girls, So I recently got a Odyssea Quad T5HO w/ Timer Fixture for my 55g FW Planted tank. It came with 2 x 54w 10k Bulbs, 2 x 54w Actenic Bulbs and 4 Blue Moon LEDs. I know this is too much light for my tank. I know that 10k is too much for my plants and that I should replace...

    Just up graded my ten gallon to a 15 gallon, and my lighting situation doesnt work anymore! Im running it low tech, but my plant variety is quite vast. Right now, and before on the ten gallon, i was running twp 14 watt energy saving spiral bulbs, and that left a yellow tint to my tank. I was...

    So, i picked up one of those packages of Topfin bulbs. Figure its a win win, cause, even if all the bulbs are duds, im definitely going to send them back to them, and they should, per thier guarantee, send me more. And even if they all make it, my package came with seven bulbs! From what I can...

    Hi, I am currently using CFL bulbs in my 35G planted hex. I am not happy with the color of the fish but happy with the plant growth. Recently a friend told me about Coralife Colormax bulbs. I am looking at maybe using the two different bulbs the Regular Colormax Mini and the 50/50 Mini. I was...

    I bought some of those walmart aponogeton bulbs, and some did not grow. I sent them in, and they sent me back a bunch more. I wanted some opinions on the best way to grow them out.

    I'm considering getting a Hagen GLO T5 HO fixture for my 55g. Do I have to use the GLO bulbs, or can I use a different brand? If I could get a different brand, what would you recommend? Also, I noticed these bulbs tend to have high K-ratings. Will that be a problem for my plants?

    I think that I have uncovered a hidden conspiracy by the lighting manufacturers. It is they, perhaps in collusion with others, who have secretly encouraged the planted aquarium hobby so that we would go out and buy these specialty fixtures and bulbs under the pretense that plastic plants aren't...

    I just purchased a package of plant bulbs from walmart. The package says they are hybrid aponogeton bulbs. It says they are easy to grow and only need to be dropped into the tank. It says they will be 6'' to 8'' tall in 15 days and in three to four weeks they should have white and pink flowers...
