    I have a 40g breeder aquarium with co2 injection and high light and I want to have plants in the aquarium like Ludwigia sp. Atlantis show their nice colors. I want to buy and Eheim Class 350 aka 2215 canister filter. I made a previous thread about my aquarium and I was recommended this Eheim...
  2. Equipment
    This is my high tech 40g breeder and I have a question about the Seachem Tidal 55 filter. The water from the return is pushing down the background plants and they aren't growing upwards like the plants on the left side. I am thinking about replacing the hob filter with a canister filter. I am...

    I have been picking away at this project for a little while: building a light mount, gathering equipment, etc... Just this evening I was finally able to get the tank itself onto the stand (it has been in the garage waiting on sufficient muscle and planning to make the move into the house). I...

    My 10 gallon CO2 high tech
  5. Lighting
    This is kind of an oddly shaped tank, so I really have no idea how to light it. My plan is to create an iwagumi with an HC Cuba carpet, just to give you an idea of the type of plant I want to grow. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Getting back into the hobby after a 5 year hiatus with a bang! Like all great decisions, I impulse bought this 40g breeder at the Petco $/gal sale. I had a low-tech tank back when I was a much more poor student but, with more space in my house and (this time) access to a car, I figured I’d go...

    High tech heavily planted 75g. Running on 2x Beamswork DA FSPEC 6500k, 5lbs co2 tank and EI dosing.
  8. Algae
    I have just experienced sudden, rapid plant growth these last few days. These plants are growing like weeds and managed to grow almost a quarter to a half of my 75 gallon tank in just four days. However, I also noticed that green dust algae and thread/string algae started popping up. Could this...
  9. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi everyone, I just made my account, but I have no doubt already been all up in and throughout this forum the last couple months. I’m new to the hobby, and like many of my hobbies and interests, I went from 0 - 100 real quick. I already have a CO2 setup and triple needle valve regulator and two...
  10. Lighting
    I'm going to be buying and setting up a 90 gallon aquarium next month and am a bit stumped on lighting choices for it that are available in Canada. Finnex lights are not sold here (I think due to it not meeting some type of safety regulation) so I'm unable to get the most highly recommended...
  11. Tank Journals
    Background I haven't kept a fish tank in many, many years. In 2005, I setup an Eclipse 6 gallon curved tank in my office. Gave that to a co-worker a year later when I changed jobs. I stocked it with some neon tetras, a zebra danio, an oto, sparse plants like crypts and anubias, blue gravel...

    I've started a gradual move of my endlers from an overstocked low tech 20g tank to a new 50g high tech that is 80% planted. In the low tech tank, the endlers have some current from an Aqueon 20 and Aqueon 30 HOB running. The new 50g tank has significantly more current with dual Aqueon...

    Hi folks! I managed to snag a 65 gallon tank from Petsmart for 48% off and am looking for a couple things to put in it. Today I bought this awesome piece of driftwood from manzanita.com and am starting to consider the kinds of plants I can attach to it or surround it with. The dimensions of the...
  14. Equipment
    So I did search the forum and all of the thread that came up on the first 5 pages were at least 2+ years old. I'm planning on starting a high tech after years of low and I'm curious what the current best most reliable regulator is? I realize that is a subjective question but I'm willing to...

    Hey everyone! So I have a planted 20 gallon long, and I've been struggling with algae, nutritional imbalances, and frustration haha. This tank has been going since about January. As you can see in the pictures, my s repens leaf tips are curling and turning brown, and my ludwigia super red...

    Options: UNS Titan 1 - 90w, 9000~12000k, 3500lm, 200 RGB LEDs, controllable (dim, rgb setting, etc.) Great spectrum with high output but not sure if this is will have enough spread to cover the sides and corners of the tanks Atledtis Pro-1 - 78w, 6500k, 4000lm, slim design, lighter...

    Hello everyone, I'm very new to the hobby and this my first post on the forum. Thank you for any assistance. :) Few Questions: #1- If I run an inline CO2 atomizer diffuser with a glass lily pipe that has upwards exit flow creating significant water agitation, will I lose a significant...
