  2. Substrate
    I'm thinking of switching to Flourite in an already established tank so for plants getting nutrients from the substrate what are the best root tabs to use?

    I have a 20 gallon long tank at work that I have had a persistent (several months) clouding problem with. I do approximately 70% water changes on a (usually) weekly basis - when I pour the old water out into a porcelain white sink it has a slight green tinge to it. This initially clears the...

    Hi. My tank is still pretty new. The ammonia levels are just going down from the aquasoil. They are at about 1. My UG was grown emersed, so it is acclimating anyway.
