    There's numerous videos out there on "hacking" more media capacity into your Fluval FX Canister filter by leaving out the red media baskets in the center of each of your Main (White) Media baskets. I did this, gaining a nice amount of additional media capacity, but, was wondering why the heck...

    I wanted better control over the Plant 3.0 lights than what the phone app allows. So I sniffed some of the bluetooth traffic and recorded the commands the app was sending. Turns out Fluval or the BLE chip manufacturer uses some very basic encryption on the commands. A friend helped me out by...

    Well after being out of the hobby for 10years or more, thought i'd dip my toes back in again. Its funny because much has changed and yet so much still the same so will be interesting to see how this evolves. Tank Fluval Flex 15L (15G) Lighting Hygger Planted+ 24/7 14W Co2 & Ferts KegKing...

    is it worth it to go after a cheaper aquarium light. instead of spending more on a fluval or a finnex light, can you get the same plant growth results with a cheaper light company like Hygger or NICREW?

    Hi everyone, brand new to the forum about 6 months into planted tanks and just upgraded from a 37 gallon to a 75 yesterday. I’m in the process of setting up my new tank in a different area of my house so I can eventually transfer all of my current fish into new tank. I really want a canister...

    Hi, So I recently purchased a second hand Fluval Roma 90L. I set it up with my plants and away I went. 2 months later not much is growing at all. Everything surviving but not thriving. I've just looked at the tube lights and the original bulbs have been replaced with a (very) cheap LED...

    What lights would be recommended for Waterbox Clear Pro 7225 167G (72.3"L ×25.3"W ×23.6"H) tank. I'm planning to grow high-light plants using fertilizer and Co2. All the on-line reviews I'm seeing are pointing to the use of Fluval Plant 3.0 or the little know about Finnex Planted+ 24/7 ALC...

    Hello All! I have a 20 gallon Ultimate Nature tank that I planted 8 weeks ago. I filled it with water 2 weeks ago and purchased a Fluval CO2 cartridge system and set it up. When I turn it on I get like one bubble every minute or so. I have the valved turned all the way on -- any ideas on...

    Hello, to anyone who owns the Fluval Aquasky 2.0 and is running a relatively shallow tank (20G high). Have you had success with light hungry carpeting plants such as Glossostigma? I also inject CO2 and apply EI dosing. So far, my other plants are thriving, notably my Alternanthera Reineckii...

  15. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi All, I have recently set up a new 2.6 gallon Fluval tank. It is housing my sick betta and then eventually a shrimp only tank. This tank is completely stock and pretty heavily planted. I'd like to know what plants have been successfully grown in this tank and any fertilization...

    I've been spending every waking moment planning out my next aquarium, and I've hit a bit of a roadblock choosing the canister filter. I was initially planning to use a single Eheim 2217, but I decided to upsize the tank a bit. With a 64g tank, the 2217 will only give me ~4x hourly turnover...

    Its been a long time since my last tank. I had a 55g high tech for many years until it crashed hard. I didn't have the bandwidth to start over so I sold everything. I have since retired and really want to get another tank. I no longer have the room for a big tank so nano it is. I also don't...
  19. Substrate
    I just received a bag of Fluval Stratum and realized that the bag I received was didn't contain enough substrate for a proper plant bedding. Before I spend $5.99 to return this bag for the bigger one, I wanted to ask if anyone had success with mixing Fluval Stratum with any other substrates. In...
