    Hello All, Is Bacopa monnieri the same as Bacopa monnieri 'compact'? Tropica has it listed as 'compact', I'm just wondering if this is 2 different plants or the same one. Side question: If this is in fact the same plant, I have seen a few other plants with the same thing, such as Hygro...
  2. Lighting
    Hey guys, To be completely honest, I have very little experience when it comes to aquarium lighting. All previous lighting used was purely for viewing purposes in mainly ornamental, tropical tanks. I have decided to try my hand at the planted aquarium, and it is proving to be fun but...

    Hi, I'm hoping that one of the flourescent-gurus here can help me understand what a "power compact" is. Is it known by any other format notation, like T5's / T4's? I'm trying to find a 2700k light for a coral life 24" fixture - but my google-fu is weak.

Now, I am looking to buy the bulbs for them and I found 7,100K Blue bulb on clearance as well, and thought...

    I have been contemplating lighting on my 55 gallon tank for about a month now and am currently considering building a fixture using spiral compact fluorescents. I am planning on low light, no CO2 and dry ferts as necessary. Substrate is half flourite, half gravel. I made a spiral compact...
