  1. Lighting
    I may have missed this thread somewhere. Any suggestions for a glass canopy to go with separate lighting fixture? I have a glass canopy with a black strip in the middle where the hinge is. I find that it can provide uneven lighting when using an LED light that stays stays over the tank. I'd...

    I posted this up on my favorite DIY site, but thought I'd share my latest project with you folks as well. I put hood in quotation marks because I'm not sure what to call it. Its not a canopy in the standard sense of the word as it doesn't rest on top of the aquarium. This is an old stand for...
  3. Lighting

  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi All! I'm new here and could use some help... I've been doing well with my 10 gallon planted tank. Red wendtii, frogbit, java fern, and some miscellaneous cryptocorynes. It's a nice low-light, low-tech tank. Hooray! Now I'd like to try something more challenging. I bought a 30 gallon tank...

    I need a lighting fixture for my 10g, the kind that's a hood/canopy with incandescent bulbs, so that I can change the bulbs and upgrade it. I'm sorry I don't know the technical terms for this kind of fixture - my knowledge of lighting systems is minimal!

    Doesn't it cut down on light and grow too much algae? I will be planting in a week or so but have been covered for years. The only thing that I grew besides osteoicthys was algae on the glass canopy

    I'm upgrading from my store bought 10 gallon typical tropical tank to a 55 gallon DIY-ish tank. I'm going with a Texas theme for starters with live plants and ornaments. The problem is, I'm not finding the ornaments I want. I have several items I'd love to toss in, but I'm concerned about...
  10. Equipment
    My 100 gallon standard (60") oak canopy top is very heavy (double plywood) and could cause some damage if not to the tank, then to fingers if dropped by mistake. Short of replacing the top altogether with a lighter material and trying to match the stain etc., I wondered if anyone had figured...
