    I'm new to aquaria and even newer to planted tanks. The lighting for plants is the most confusing aspect so far... I have a 55 Marineland aquarium that had the support in the middle. I bought the aquarium as a "Kit" that came with a double hood and a panel of LED's for each side. It contains...

    I got a 100 watt Marineland VisiTherm for my 20 gallon a 2 months ago to replace a Whisper HT30 with an inaccurate preset thermometer. For the past couple months it has kept the water at 76F right where I want it with absolutely no variation despite the fact that it occasionally gets as low as...

    I've been trying to find the right led fixture for my tank for a while now. I will have low light and medium light plants, and don't have a c02 setup. The tank is a 60 gallon, 48" by 13" by 24" tall. I want it to be bright enough to have my plants growing healthy, but don't want it so bright...

    I have a couple LED lights for sale: First light 48" Current TrueLumen Pro 8,000K Sun White strip. This comes with the power adapter (yes, they make you buy it separately ) and the optional mounting legs. My picture below is to just show that it works. I also have it laying on its side in my...

    I have a 10 gallon but am wanting to upgrade to a larger tank. I'm thinking a 29 gallon is the way to go next because I want to attempt to aquascape a little. I've been looking at this http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=23554 kit for my next tank but have a few...

    Hello all, I just picked this pump up at Petsmart for $35 after tax. I always check the prices on Amazon when I'm shopping and this thing is $15 dollars on Amazon! I still bought it because I wanted to get one right now. If it works out I will get more from Amazon. Anyways I want to know...

    tldr; marineland cartridge is messed up, idk what happened. can tannins destroy a cartridge? I've had this tank up for just over a month, running a Penguin 200 on a 30g high tank. I'm new to planted tanks, so i've been reading up as much as i can. I have diy co2 being pumped by a submersible...

    This a a review of the Marineland C-360 canister filter. It will consist (for now) of my first impressions of the filter. I will update in a few weeks. Please keep in mind that although I have been keeping fish and breeding them for a number of years, I am still learning. If you see something I...

    I'm looking into possibly getting a Marineland stand, however, I've read a few reports that the stands don't actually support the rim of the tank all the way around, but only partially (ie: full left and right rim support and a foot or so in the middle front, not sure about the back). Is this...

    Hey guys, as this is my first posting on this forum I would begin by saying I am a 20 year old, male student living in Trinidad with a 150 gallon (5ftx2ftx2ft) main display tank. My tank is planted with several types of anubias, sunset crypts, giant amazon sword, crypt Balansaes, and a crinium...

    Oh hello there, I'm new around these parts. I just finished reading the LED lighting compendium and I have now, a question about this relatively new Marineland Aquatic Plant fixture... Is there really a point in paying almost 100 dollars more for this fixture when I can get two of the...

    Hey guys, New to the forum and I have been researching these lights for quite some time and continually come across mixed reviews. I'm talking about the double bright by Marineland and the Reef Capable lights. For about three weeks now I have been thinking about starting up a 40g breeder tank...

    Hey all! So I am almost perfectly new to planted tanks though I've had an interest in them for a while now. I've recently decided to make my 3 gallon Marineland Crescent into a fully planted. I'm definitely looking for some advice. I've been looking through the forum and reading loads today but...

    Hey guys, looking for a light for the 50 gal tank I'm getting, and I stumbled across Marineland LED lights. Have any of you guys used them before? All the reviews I've found are varied, so do any of you have experiences with them?

    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...

    HELP! My inlaws are coming to our little home for the first time and will be staying in the guest room which is where my largest tank is. After 4 years of running smoothly, the Marineland Penguin 200 has started making a slight grinding noise, that is very annoying! I have read something...

    Hello, What type of stands do you prefer (metal, wood, other)? Do you purchase your shelving online, at the local fish shop, do-it-yourself, have them custom made, etc? I am considering searching for a custom stand builder for two Perfecto/Marineland 30 Gallon breeder tanks (brochure...

    I used to be a dedicated customer of Marineland Stealth heaters, but since they changed them, I've heard some poor reviews and haven't bought any more. So, what heater do you recommend? And are the Stealth Pros really that bad?

    Abridged: Rattling noise/lack of functionality cause by faulty impeller assembly. Not air, not bioballs. First time poster, so apologies if this is the wrong forum to post in. I have owned a Marineland C220 for several months now and like many other owners I have had a slight rattle every...

    Hello everyone!!! I'm new here so I wanted to, first and foremost, say hi! My questions are mostly on filtration. I bought one of those Tetra brand 20 gallon aquarium kits a few months ago. I have since replaced the standard florescent fixture with a GLO T5 HO Double bulb fixture. The bulbs...
