    I've kept a fresh water tank for most of my life, but only switch to live plants a few years ago. I'm not trying to win any aquascaping awards, but I'd like to have a green, natural-looking tank. I have a 46 gallon bow front tank with a Fluval Aqua Fresh and Plant 2.0 46 watt LED light. For...

    Hi everyone, first post here after lurking for a while. In the stages of getting my first tank going. 24X20X27in half moon 30 gal. Half-Moon Aquarium Combo | Marineland. I think it would be beautiful to get it planted, but a challenge to get there. With the depth of this beast, I know...

    I have a 56 deep tank. The tank itself is a bit of an odd size -- 30" wide and 24" deep. I have been running two Coralife Aqualight-S. After getting them (I needed two to get what seemed like enough light at that depth for good plant growth), I realized the reviews were not so great, and sure...

    I am in the planning phase of setting up a 37g column tank. Measurements are 20Lx18Wx24H. Looking for low-tech low-cost lighting options for a planted SA river bottom set up. Not sure of the plants I'm using yet, but obviously need to be tolerant of low lighting conditions. I have a nice tall...

    Hello everyone, I just recently bought a hex tank that I believe is around a 37 gallon. 24 inches deep, 12 inches each panel, and 24 inches from point to point. I have a stock light on it that came with the tank, but I am thinking it isn't strong enough to reach the bottom of the tank. I am...

    Hello, I recently upgraded from a 29 gallon to a 60 gallon aquarium. I had a 30" RAY2 FINNEX 7000k light on my old tank that I placed in the center of my new tank. I also bought the 48" RAY2 FINNEX 7000k LED model. I'm wondering if I need to replace the 30" with another 48" (so I'll have two...

    My tank is a deep, tall 32 inch high, 21 inch long and 13 inch broad/wide one. It holds 143 liters or 38 gallons water. I use ADA Amazonia and riversand on either ends with glass marble divider in between. I diffuse DIY CO2 with a broom stick and every alternate day inject macro and DTPA ferts...

    I have a 90 gallon (48.5" x 18.5"x25 3/8") bare bottom Ryukin goldfish tank. I want to have some marimo moss balls, java fern on rocks and anubias on either rocks or wood. Maybe also some onion plants or jungle vals planted with fluval stratum in glass vases. I really like the...

    Hi, I am going to start a planted tank soon, and since it's my first attempt I'd like anyone that knows roughly what they are talking about to have a look at the list of equipment below and tell me if I am heading in the right direction or if anything needs updating/changing. Aqua One...

    Hi, I'm in the process of building my own aquarium to fit the space I have. So at the end, it will most probably be 78"Wx28"Dx36"H. (36" of water. I have an additionnal 4" of substrat) My concern is regarding the lighting. I will have a lot of plants in the aquarium since I really like plants...

    I recently bought a 48"x28"x28" tank and Im having a bit of trouble deciding what to do with it. :confused: Initially I thought it would be too deep to do a planted tank but then I thought of using LEDs and stumbled upon the 50W and 100W cannons. The only problem is they only come in 12000K...
