    Does anyone know the reason this occurs? A google search tells me that some plants do this in order to deter pests, and that it can be a sign of something wrong with the plant, but I know that some aquatic species appear green under low light and become red under high. How and why does this...

    I have a really odd and very tall sized tank I am setting up. I want medium-low light as I will just have swords, ferns, and anubias. The tank dimensions are 30 inches tall, 20 inches wide, and 18 inches depth. I was looking at a fluval aquasky but they don't make them in my tank size. It will...

    Hey everyone, I'm finally back after 5 or so crazy months. I'm in a position where I'm ready to set up a tank again, and I WAS going to go with a 40 breeder, or maybe an ADA 90p, but my girlfriend who I'm making a tank with suggested that we start with something smaller to get back into the...

  5. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Here is a letter I wrote to our local news paper about the high Nitrate in our local tap water. It's really disturbing. ----- I am concerned about the quality of the water we drink on the Eastern Shore and we all have a reason to be concerned. I graduated from Salisbury University and...

    Hello, Could you please offer some advice? I’ve just finished setting up my first planted tank. The tank is 100g (450 litres) and the only way to fill it was slowly using a hose pipe. The trouble is the water was coming out at 38.5 °C. It’s middle of summer here in Dubai and even our cold...

    Hey guys, just wanted some opinions for lighting a 30 gal (36Lx16Hx12D) I plan on keeping a medium-high tank, using DIY CO2 and EI dosing. Judging by the chart in the sticky, at 16" above substrate, I'd be looking at 2 t5NO or 1 t5HO... I would probably rather go with the higher of the...

    Okay, so I'm looking into buying a 29g and I definitely want to plant it heavily. A lot of the plants I like require high light so I'm thinking 3+ watts per gallon? It a Current USA 30" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x24W 10K/Freshwater Its only 48 watts each, so I was thinking what if I...
  9. Fish
    I really like Bleeding Heart Tetras, but I'm not sure if they will work for me. I tested my tap a few days ago and the pH is 7.4, KH is 8, Gh is 7. Would they be okay in these conditions? Could I put a small school in a 10g tank? Would they work with a school of Tiger Barbs in a 55g?

    What peaceful fish would do best in a high lighted tank? Thanks, Clare

    I'm upgrading to a 20 gallon high tank. It's twice as high as a normal 10 gallon. Any aquascaping ideas for it? I don't want the top to look empty.
  12. Aquascaping
    I got a new 20 gallon high aquarium today, which is twice as tall as a normal 10 gallon, and I need some ideas on how to decorate it. Perhaps a tall piece of driftwood? Does anyone here have a 20 gallon high with pics? I need ideas. Thanks. :icon_bigg
