  2. Low Tech Forum
    Hello everyone, I thought it might be useful to start a thread about low tech light options for small bowl aquariums. I'm currently setting up a 2g bowl for a betta. I'm planning on using sand as my substrate, and probably just going to add some guppy grass and moss. I may dose some ferts and...

    Hi, I've had a new 20L tank up for about a week now. No fish yet. I ordered (probably too many) plants from liveaquaria and now have a bit of a jungle. HC, hairgrass, micro sword, anubia, crypts, and alternatha reineckii mini in foreground; ludwigia, rotala, myrio, hornwort, swords in mid and...

    :) Hello, let me start of by saying that this is not my first tank. I currently have a 29g and a 20g tall. I have had them for a little over 4 years. The thing is, they are not at my house. I moved to Sac two years ago from another town and I didn't have the space at my new place. I just bought...

    Anyone use the Wave-point Mirco Sun 6500k daylight high output 8-w LED (6") as well as Deep Blue Solar Flare Micro 6700k LED I'm curious about trying one of these on a standard 5g tank so light would be between 10-15" above substrate.. Would like to know par rating at those ranges (mainly if...

    :help:Does anyone have experience with using strip lighting directly over water? My glass top broke and I was wondering if it would be ok to use my strip light directly over the water. I would modify the strip light so it would be about 5 inches above the water, and there would be no way it...

  10. Equipment
    I am thinking of setting up a planted Evolve 4 or 8. I don't think these tanks come with a heater. Does anyone know if a heater will fit in the filter area? If so which one works best? Next will the lighting be enough for low/med light simple setup? :confused:

    Hi All, I am thinking of getting my 55 up and running (it has been sitting for years and I just read a good thread that gave me some ideas). I ran across a fixture on CL that might be great or might be to much. It is a Coralife 48" CFL Aqualight. It holds 4 21" cfl's (55-65w each) and has...

    I came across a good deal on a fixture and was worried it would be too much for my tank. It is a Tek Light 36" 8 bulbs, 39watts each. Tank is 36" wide, 22" wide and 32" tall for a volume of 110G and injecting CO2 though a diffuser. Tell me what you think.

    Okay it's been almost a month since I bought Marineland Aquatic plant LED fixture 24" - 36" for my 38 gallon and so far light doesn't cover enough space (which the 36" - 48" should do) and what it does cover has grown some algae the timer is very helpful and can be programmed. I'm gonna return...

    Hey guys, been lurking around here for a long time learning the tricks of the trade and using every avoidance strategy possible to not hang out in SNS... until now, and this time hopefully it's to give back a little. The other day I got a little over excited and purchased this fixture to start...
