    Here we go again! I picked up a used Fluval Chi 2 - 5 Gallon for $50 along with a bunch of extras (submersible LED strip, 50W preset heater, a piece of what looks like manzanita wood, fluval rocks, glosso root tabs, freeze dried bloodworms). I definitely should have snagged the other Chi they...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey everyone, new here. I bought a little 5 gallon Fluval Chi back in April, and of course by the end of June the LEDs on the filter/light cube went out. I admit, I left it that way until last week, when I decided enough is enough. Tossed the whole cube and upgraded to a clip on light and old...

    Does anyone have experience using adhesive flexible LED strips? Are there particular brands/models that are better for growing plants? I have seen a few advertised as grow lights that only have the red and blue spectrum, but I was hoping for more natural look; ideally like daylight. I plan on...
  5. The Lounge & Introductions
    I have a Fluval Chi with a betta, oto, nerite snail, and some ghost shrimp. It is lightly planted with a small heater but the stock light/filter unit really isn't designed for a planted tank. My goal is a fairly high-tech planted tank with a few critters. If things go well with this tank, I...

    Hi all, Needed a light boost for my fluval chi and thought I could do a custom one for cheap. All you need is: 1. DC Adapter Constant current power supplies are recommended, but I wanted to try it out with a constant voltage supply because I had the resistors and power supply lying around from...

I have a planted 6.6 Fluval Chi with the following plants: Afzelli, Windelov, Dwarf Hairgrass, Wisteria, Amazon Frogbit (doing poorly) and I am wondering how to carpet dwarf and make the plants grow.

  10. Low Tech Forum
    Hi all, I am just about to start my first planted tank. As I'm on a budget it will initially be low tech, and I have a few questions about possible plants. I managed to get a Fluval Chi 25l for £30 so that will be my tank, I understand that the light on this thing is rather weak though I can't...

    I started a new tank yesterday, a Fluval Chi 5 gallon. I picked it up off Craigslist.com for a steal. I quickly determined that the included filter and light would not meet my needs as I couldn't run the lights on a timer without turning off the filter. Each new post will be added to this...
