  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi, I'm new to the forum, but I thought this would be the best place to ask about my tank. Two weeks ago, I added a larger dose of phosphate to my tank because my plants had been getting great growth with what I had added so far. Unfortunately, I added too much and green water took hold of my...

    Hello all - Being a newbie to the whole planted tank thing, I did a lot of research and talked to people at the fish store, and I *thought* I had a good handle on a planted tank before starting one, but I've been running into TONS of issues with algae, phosphates, dosage rates, etc. Equipment...

  7. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello all :) I'm new to this forum. I was going to buy a fluval chi 6.6 on amazon for 60$ (on sale) and I was wondering should I buy it for my shrimp because I heard the filter could suck up small fish like danios, small tetras, etc...
