    Well I am the proud new owner of a 11.33 gallon, High Clarity Low Iron, Glass Cube. Dimensions: 13.78" x 13.78" x 13.78" For the stand I found an old speaker at Good Will ($6) and the fit is nearly seamless. So I gutted the inside and turned it into a storage cabinet. So now I'm trying to...

    I have 2 nice pieces of mopani in the garadge that were used in a bearded dragon tank about 3 years ago. Can I use them in a fish tank? I'm assuming I would have to boil or bake them.

    Hello everyone! I need some smaller manzanita pieces for my nano tanks. Pretty much something that I can attach moss to and make a scape out of for a 3 gallon and 2.5 gallon. I would also appreciate if someone knew about some larger, thicker pieces that would go well within my 20 long...

    Here is a picture of my Aqueon 29 from 8 months ago. Everything in there is plastic and it's mostly stock Aqueon 29 kit items - light, heater, et cetera. Yesterday I moved it to a new apartment and used the move to replace... well, pretty much everything. I bought - A clear glass hood...

    I have one in my brackish water tank that is currently 1.0025. I followed the manufacturer's directions and it has now been in the tank for 3 weeks and is still discoloring things enough I am doing 20% water changes every few days. I had heard that if you boil them for 2-4 hours, this helps...

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to planted tanks and new to this forum. I've been lurking around here for about a month reading through old threads as I started my first planted tank. I'm a fairly experienced aquarium hobbyist. I got my first tank 35 years ago when I was a 10 year old child and I've had...

    Well, I have finally decided to throw myself into the thick of things and give this planted tank thing a shot. Although I am a broke graduate student, I decided having a beautiful planted aquarium would be my guilty pleasure. This of course being a much better use of my money than say, perhaps...

    Moving away from heavily planted tanks and into African cichlids so I have a few things to clear out of here. :) First is a set of Coralife adjustable mounting legs. They are in excellent condition, very clean, though one of the rubber pads broke off with the peg from the screw still in it. It...

    I just bought a pretty nice piece of driftwood for my nano aquarium. After boiling it several times can I just dump it in (this is pre-cycle I'm just starting my first tank)? or do I wait for it to dry before filling the tank? It's African Mopani driftwood in case that has something to do with...

    Hi. I know that when you try to use grape wood or similar woods in an aquarium, they develop a white filmy fungus, which of course, I wanted to avoid. I bought a large log with a ZOO MED tag declaring it to be Mopani. Now, 3 days later, guess what I have on the end of it? Yup, that very same...
