    I've had goldfish of all types and koi for over 10 years all in ponds. I knew what plants to use and not use. Now a year after a horrific run in with a raccoon I've moved my remaining comet, shubunkin and sarsasa indoors and then proceeded to plunge head first into the world of planted tanks...

    Look for input on plants that stay red in medium light with no co2. I use seachem excel and iron as well as omsocote+ root tabs. Temp is 76F, pH is 7.5, gh and kh 8 andn 4 if that is any help. This is for a 10g so tiger lotus is a bit big. Would AR stay red in these conditions? Open to other...

    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...

    I've done a lot of research on lighting since buying a 20 gallon long (12 inches tall). Initially I wanted to go with a 2x24 watt T5HO Catalina fixture, but after reading a lot of horror stories on high light algae outbreaks, I'm not sure I'm ready for that realm of lighting yet. This is what...

    I've been really enjoying everyone's LED project and the discussions very much. I've been giving some thought to building one of my own. It can't be cheap quality, but it really needs to give me a very good bang for the buck. I'm going with CREE LEDs as they are the best bang for the buck IMHO...
