Right, a 24" x 24" x 24" Mr Aqua cube. What was I thinking?
My wife: "It's huge". I will pay, dearly, for years to come.
My 2 predominant thoughts:
- I hope it holds water... until I move out
- how do I light this sucker?
High light? NOPE. Most likely co2 to feed the moss at the bottom...
When I first started planted tank back in college, I remember visiting this site almost on an hourly basis. After graduating, I have to drop the hobby completely due to the numerous moves and job changes.
Recently, I was bit hard by the fish bug after visiting Aqua Forest in SF. I started...

I'm going to break this intro up in to two parts:
Part 1 - Background / Unboxing (skip if you don't like reading)
Part 2 - The Build Plan
Disclaimer: I don't work for TruAqua or AquaTop... just wanted to get that out of the way. In fact, AquaTop (if you...
Hello everyone. I'm currently rocking a Fluval Edge, but I've had enough of the problems with trying to get light all the way to the corners, and problems maintaining the tank without tearing all the plants up.
I really love how the edge is styled, with all of the hardware concealed, but wanted...
So I used to be really into the hobby, then I left the country for two years...but now I'm back and have decided to kick things off by mounting a 3 gallon nano...Starting with some emersed plants...

Sup guys! So I've been lurking around TPT for about a month now, and have finally decided on a set-up for my first tank. I was looking for something small that would easily fit on my desk, and found a great deal on eBay for an Aqueon Evolve 4. Its not much to look at yet, but hopefully by this...
I can't seem to find a suitable sized tank online, so I'm going to give the whole DIY thing a try and see if I can put together my own tank. I plan to make an 11" cube, but I am unsure what thickness of glass to use.
The calculators I found online...

I'm moving back to college dorms in two days! ...Leaving behind all my fish and aquariums with the parents. Fortunately, I come home every other weekend to tend to all that jazz.
But all the time in between... no aquarium fun.
I've always found pico tanks (and when I say pico, I mean VERY...
im going to have a 46cm (18inch?) cube 25G in my bedroom soon. Co2 and flood LED. Im a little worried about the implication...
the room light might be a stressful thing.. turning it on whenever i enter (when the tank's light are off)
I ordered an Evolve 8 as a slightly belated christmas present to myself. It arrived today, and was promptly set up. Thus far, I've left everything stock, with the intention of running it the way it was intended, before I go about playing with it for my uses.
I always INTEND to take pictures of...
So this is just a little side project I've been working on that I thought you guys might like. It's a 6" solid glass cube that is roughly 0.9 gallons for a mini desk tank. I just collected the rocks locally and used soil and plants from my other tank so it's been a fairly cheap investment...
first of all i call it a fail cube, because:
1) it isnt a true cube as established in this thread: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/planted-nano-tanks/128203-catons-pint-sized-pico.html
2) the glass isnt made for nice viewing...bubbles are found throughout the glass and the glass is...
This has been up and running for about 3 weeks now. I just trimmed the StarGrass yesterday.

would this light be enough to successfully sustain/grow the following plants in a 12x12x12" cube?
plants im planning on using are needle leaf java fern, java fern, dwarf hairgrass, java moss, a few stems of tropica049, and some other stems of some light green stargrass looking stuff. all of...
Currently running a 10g planted tank. I'm thinking of picking up a cube and will transfer everything over from my 10g. The 10g is currently lit up by 2 13w 5000k spiral cfls, obviously the hood wont fit on a rimless 12x12x12 cube.
I'll be repurposing my current 'manhattan' 10-20g stand, so...
