    http://www.aquatraders.com/LED-Freshwater-Bright-p/56203.htm is the one i want. Is 10000k okay for a planted aquarium? Any other suggestions that are cheaper than $50? I am going to try growing hc cuba and dwarf hairgrass with cherry shrimp.

  3. DIY
    Hi. I'm new to the hobby and I have decided to try my hand at LED lighting. I have a standard 55gal long Tanganyika Cichlid community tank. It's planted with Val and Lotus at the moment, I was considering adding some Java fern as well to some of the holey rock in the tank. It's currently lit...
  4. Lighting
    I have a 10 gallon cycled tank. I have a hood and the T-8 light it came with. I have a 20 gallon planted tank and I don't have CO2 or fertilizer, just a T-8 bulb. The plants are thriving, but I feel I may have just gotten lucky. I took one of my smallest plants and put it in the 10 gallon. After...
  5. Tank Journals
    I have set up another tank. :red_mouth I had a 55 gallon setup as an emersed tank but decided before moving to clean it out in set it up as a real planted tank once I moved. I had (still have) no money to put into this tank so I am letting things kind of just fall into place with this tank...
  6. Lighting
    How much light would a 90 gallon heavily planted need? I would like to have as much light as I can without the necessity of Co2 or ferts. The tank will have MTS soil. I am also trying to keep it cheap- don't need anything fancy and could try DIY if it would really lower the cost (if it can be...
  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    I've been lurking here and a couple other aquarium forums for a while. I'm in college and I'm hoping to setup a cheap planted cherry shrimp tank to put on my desk next year. Here is my budget at the moment. Current budget is for a 10 gallon. I'm willing to go much smaller but when I tried...
  8. Equipment
    I have a small 2.5 gallon tank set up next to my bed and plan on using it as a breeding tank for shrimp. I want to split the air between a sponge filter in that tank and an air stone in my 10 gallon. Later I want to use the pump for a larger 10-20 gallon shrimp breeding bucket during the summer...
  9. Indiana
    I called some welding shops around the city, and they pretty much all want around 100 dollars or so before I even get the tank in my hands, and that's before I even get it filled. Their prices for refilling were pretty crazy as well. 2.5 and 5 lb tanks are pretty similarly priced. Anyone have...

  11. Aquascaping
    I have a 6 foot 130 gallon planted tank and I want a big epic piece of driftwood for it. I'm a DIY kind of guy and I find it hard to pay $100 plus for a bit of wood from my LFS when I there is free wood just laying around on the ground everywhere. I've read some things in the internet about...

    I live in Tacoma, and the only place i know that has Teacup Stingrays "retic" is The Wildside Pets but they are $99. And the store I work for Midway Tropical Pets :D wont keep them in stock for me to choose from because of issues with holding them for ppl and them not wanting the rays afterward...
  13. Lighting
    I have a hard time looking for bulbs in the hardware store (because that's usually what's most affordable in terms of DIY) when nothing is labelled in (K) and there is no red/blue spectrum indicator or wavelength measurement. Not only that, but when I start asking question about color...
