Hiya. I set up a 15 gallon tank around 40 days ago and did a fish in cycle (my partner came home one day with a Betta in a cup). I planted heavily with mostly foreground plants, carried out regular water changes (usually 25% or more daily), and tested my water daily. I saw my ammonia levels...
Hi! I just started dosing my 10 gallon tank with a mini fluval C02 kit because my plants were looking horrible. They kept dying so I am now down to some paltry looking anubias nana, java fern (1 leaf) and I think the other one is a Lobelia Cardinal (only plant that looks well).
I am currently...
I have a question, I bough a regulator which show 3500 PSI and I want to buy a cylinder in the picture. I want to know which do you advise to get, the small cylinder (5L) or the Big Cylinder (7L). It will supply 3 planted tanks.
I am just afraid if the big cylinder 7.2 Liters will damage the...
I decided to take the time to establish a few guidelines for hobbyist using the Dry Start Method. I will attempt to not create a novel here. I've successfully dry started/flooded Micranthemum Monte Carlo. This was a 10 week dry start using ADA Aqua-soil, in a 40 LONG. I've dry started in...
Setting up a 40 long. 16 inches in height.
My main focus with this tank is a large lawn of Monte carlo.... Full carpet(hopefully)
High tech. C02 injection. Ada aqua soil, liquid ferts, dry start.
I'm in between:
Finnex planted plus
Which light for my intentions, please!!!!
Alright guys! After some sense of success on my 12 gallon long, I got the itch to get something bigger.
The tetras schooling are my thing, I will be focusing on that. I chose:
Aq 40 gallon long- 48x12x16 footprint. 4 ' for schooling!
Aq 55 gallon pine stand, same footprint
I've been using the Rhinox Diffuser since I started my tank 4 months ago in conjunction with my Aquatek regulator.
I feel like most of the bubbles are going straight to the surface even with my powerhead close above the diffuser.
Has anyone else experienced using this diffuser? Would...
Tank is 125 gallon
Fluval FX6 canister
I am looking into a few systems but what stands out to me is the GLA GRO Co2 system with a 10lb tank.
This is a $345 system but what stands out to me is it includes everything I need except the pH controller and I guess also an injection...
This is my first aquarium. I've done more research than I'd care to admit but now it's time to put that into practice!

- 48" Oak
- Finnex Planted+ 24/7 (48")
- Eheim 200-watt Jager

So recently I noticed that my well water out of the tap comes out at a PH of about 5.9-6.0 PH. Being it is well water it is also hard water. I have two tanks, one 75 Gallon High Tech with Two Kessil 360 Tuna Suns on it, and an eheim cannister filter and a fluval 406 cannister filter (75...
Hey everyone i am new to this forum. I just wanted to see what you guys think about using C02 in a dirted tank, ive always thought you dont need it because the point of a dirted tank is to be low tech but i have other people disagreeing with me so what do you guys think!

Hey guys. I was planning my own DIY CO2. I was wondering is DIY as good as Commercial grade CO2 setup? Also with DIY CO2 anyone in NYC (Queens area/Brooklyn or even Long Island) do it? If so think anyone can help me with it a bit?
Thank you in advance.
I'm trying to understand what might be optimal circulation conditions.
Is there optimal placement for your c02 diffusion ? I've seen some aquariums that baffle me where plants might be blocking the circulation. Does it matter ?
I've also run into threads where people are talking about...
