    Hello everyone, This is my first attempt at a true nano tank. I kept planted tanks in my adolescence but never had the funds for co2, rimless tanks, etc so I'm excited for the opportunity to set this tank up. *This is a backlogged version as I didn't take pictures of the setup and have changed...

    Hello All! I've recently setup a 225l planted aquarium, my first foray into the high tech world. While it has certainly been a lot of fun, there's also been a lot of frustration (which I believe is in large part my own fault) and algae. The tank is currently 21 days old, and still cycling...

    Is the Finnex Planted+ 24/7 light good for carpeting plants? High tech. In a 10 or 30 gallon tank? I'm thinking HC and Ranunculus Inundatus and some long grass-like plant for the background. I just love the features it has and it has a simple, sleek look that I am looking for. This is my...

Anyone have any experience with black diamond as a cap? I'm thinking it should be fine, just not sure how much...

    So about 2 weeks ago I set up a new 10 gallon high tech high light planted tank and a week in I stupidly assumed that my family would turn everything off while I was away for the weekend. So for three days my tank sat with 40 watts of light on it and the CO2 going. When I came back there was a...

    Does anyone know what nutrient this plant is missing? Its is currently anchored onto a piece of driftwood in an high-light high-tech nano that I dose twice a week with flourish. All of the other plants in the tank are growing like crazy but this one (they are all planted in Flourite with...

    I am planning my very first high-tech tank, a 20 gallon long which will house a single betta and probably a couple of nerites. I have a few questions regarding the tank. To begin, my pH after resting out of the tap is just about 7.8, the hardness is pretty much as high as you can get without...

    So I finally upgraded to CO2 in my 55 gal bowfront and put a whole bunch of new plants in. After letting it settle in for a few weeks, I did a big re-arrange and have found myself with a big open spot in front. I was thinking of putting Sp. Repens there, but maybe there's a better option...

    Hi All, This has been such a resourceful forum for getting my first ever high light planted tank set up, so thanks so much! I apologize if this belongs in the fertilizer section, but my question is about my lighting so I hope you'll help me out. I've got a 20gal freshwater tank with narrow...
