    As I'm contemplating a low profile shade for my Chihiros WRGB2 (Their stock one seems bulky but I may give up and get it), I remembered I had made one for my ONF Flat nano+ that worked really well, fit it's aesthetic, and was essentially free. I thought I would share it if glare is annoying for...

    Hi, at the moment, my 28 gallon has an aerogarden on it to light it, using LED lights, the aerogarden is just a hydroponic system with nice lights.

    Does anyone have a Finnex Stingray 2 in either 12" or 16" that could tell me if the legs on either can be adjusted to fit a 14" aquarium? I like the Finnex brand, the other light I have from them was amazing on my 3 gal.

    Alright so I have a question for you all. Which fixture and why? Someone was throwing out Hydro Planet T5HO 2foot fixture(4bulbs) and I happened to find it on the side of the road. Looks very similar to this fixture. It looks like it's in really good shape, I still have to test it out to make...

    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...
