    Hey folks, newbie aquarist here. I have 2×1.5×1.5 feet tank with preassurised CO2 injected. Currently I am using Sunsun ADS 500C led light, its pretty decent white led light but I wanted to switch to good WRGB light. Budget wise I can afford Chihiros WRGB 2 slim (60cm) or WRGB 2(45cm). I did my...

    I recently just bought the Chihiro WRGB II 30cm and it has an annoying coil whine present if the dimmer is in use (its very light but noticeable). I have already returned one units and the second one is the same. My question is if anyone else has this noise, and if so, is there a way to get...

    Hi guys, I have a 10 gallon that has a co2 system but I'm not very consistent with turning the co2 on and off with my work schedule. I purchased a cheap solenoid to connect to my system a while back (an Fzone) but it broke within 3 days so I returned it. I'm looking for a simple solenoid...

    Hey, long time no see! Sadly, I'm back on TPT because I'm breaking a tank down, not putting a new one together. My lease is up in less than two months, I'm moving back to the great Midwest after seven...complicated years in Eugene and I want to get rid of everything ideally before July 11. I...

    I'm looking at getting an FX6 soon to go along with my purchase of a 90 gallon aquarium, but trying to find different pieces of equipment that are compatible with it's 1" hose is proving to be quite a challenge. It looks like I will probably have to DIY some of the setup but just want to confirm...

    I am having a problem with the CO2 system in my 40 gal freshwater aquarium (36"w x 15"d x 17"h). I am out of ideas about what else to try. Help would be much appreciated (probably something only a newbie would miss). :help: I am new to CO2--I have only used it since last fall. For a while I had...

    Hi, I'm wondering whether this costco shelving (https://www.costco.com/trinity-6-tier-wire-shelving-rack%2c-48%22x18%22x72%22.product.100412448.html) will be able to hold three 10 gallon tanks?' I'm planning on putting them on a plywood base but I'm worried about the metal bowing. Thanks for...

    I have limited space where my tank is, so I went with a smaller 20oz paintball CO2 tank with an adapter and a regulator with a built-in solenoid. image Everything is working well. Almost. The problem is that the regulator is positioned with "normal" tanks in mind that have their outlet on the...

    I've just started looking at 10G tanks to setup an aquarium again in my home and was wondering what tanks or kits people would recommend?

    I've been pouring over Amazon, Google, and others for reviews and suggestions on a 29 gallon stand of high quality and durability. There are some... issues... I'm facing that are influencing my decision. Two to be exact, two furry little chewy ones. My wife has rats. While my current setups...

    I was looking into upgrading my CO2, right now its just DIY with citric acid and baking soda. I was looking into using canisters, and because my tank is small (17 gallons) I was thinking I could use the Paintball canister method, maybe even a full aluminum canister, not sure yet. I found this...

    Hello all, I've decided to purchase a tank for the very first time. I want to create something in between an Iwagumi tank and a Japanese landscape, perhaps of mountains and caves and bonsai. I want it to be tropical fish friendly so that I can get small community colourful fish with a...

    So I've had my tank for about 3 years now and the setup has been very basic. Tank is 130L. The brand is Aquaone, I bought the whole package which came with the tank, light, HOB filter, heater and stand. Since then I got another HOB filter (Aquaclear). The substrate is Peat moss with white sand...

    Water flow too is strong, I'm planning on getting a Krib pulcher in the future and they like a steady/low flow. I need the power head to benefit my plants but there isn't a built in way in the fan to adjust it. What can I do to make the flow softer?

    Hello everyone, i decided to start my 55gallon planted tank and i want to ask some questions about my setup.
