    So a friend gave me FOR FREE a Fluval Edge 6g tank kit... Including everything I need to start my own tank! Score! (He complained it was too "dirty", 15 minutes of scrubbing later I got it to look brand new :) ) I haven't done a planted tank in a couple of years, and I figure it's time to get...

    Hello, I have a planted Fluval Edge 6g tank and have just recently started diffusing CO2 into it. I have Finnex Ray 2 in addition to the stock lighting and the Fluval CO2 indicator. I'm wondering if you have to consistently diffuse CO2 into the tank while the lights are on? Right now, I run CO2...

    We got our tank on April 22. We put in sand, 5 plants (one of which has been removed because it was all sad and dying, the other 4 are doing fine) and a bit of driftwood. Sometime shortly after we added gravel to go on top of the sand. On may 7 I noticed that we had snails. yay snails..... I...

    Hi there everyone. I was hoping for some advice. I have a planted fluval edge, and I really want to improve the lighting situation. I plan to do this with a light bar over the top. I was wondering what advice you guys have on selection. I am dosing excel, and have a clean up crew of otos and...

    I'm getting a collection of CO2 bubbles trapped up against the top glass of my Fluval Edge. Does anyone have any advise on how to fix this. I've lowered the water level to be below the top glass line....but that just defeats the purpose of having that cool top glass.
