    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.

    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 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...
