    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...

    This is my first time trying to aquascape so suggestions are more than welcome! These are the plants that are arriving this week: Alternanthera Reineckii Alternanthera Reineckii Variegated Ambulia Anubias Bacopa Colorata Cabomba Furcata Ceratophillum Helanthium bolivianum ‘angustifolia’...
  8. 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...
  11. Planted Nano Tanks
    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...
  12. 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...
  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    I went in to buy a second Fluval Spec III (2.6gal) today but the pet store was out. I saw they had their own brand, the Imaginarium Pro 3.7 gallon, and decided to try that out. Like the Fluval, it has its own compartment for the water pump and a sponge filter. The compartment looks bigger than...

    I love the Fluval Nano Light. It has a nice built-in timer with multiple lighting profiles and sunrise and sunset dimming, but I wanted more control. Specifically, I wanted to replicate Diana Walstad's 14-hour Siesta lighting schedule. Walstad, a scientist and skilled aquatic gardener, is author...

    Hi guys! I currently just got back into the hobby after a 2 year hiatus. I ran into an issue with my T5HO dying on me during this time. I bought the Fluval Aquasky 18W and hung it up over my tank. I feel like this is still a bit on the low light spectrum. Looking to grow plants that will...

    I bought the filter 2 months ago on black friday with all new tank, heater etc, and started my tank a week ago. Currently cycling with new plants / no fish. The filter is suppose to be quiet and that's the reason I bought it. I needed it to be quiet, my girlfriend didn't want me to start a new...

    Hello, due to a long-term renovation I've started taking down my planted tank. While going through my mess of an aquarium stand I realized I had a couple bottles of fertz left neatly unused. These include 500mL bottles of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Flourish, and a 250mL bottle of Potassium. Attached...
  18. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I am looking into purchasing a planted tank kit and have come across the Fluvial Flex and Dennerle capers tank which are both similarly priced. Which one do you think is better as a planted tank?
  19. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So that new massive Flex is pretty lit right! I'm hoping they also make a small nano one below the 34L.
  20. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've heard that there is a new Fluval Flora and Flex aquarium(s) on the way soon? Just wondered if anyone has any more details, specs or anything? And what if anything has changed or been upgraded? I don't know too much about the Flora. For any new Flex tanks the following would be my wish...
