    I am in the early stages of planning an entirely new high-end build. Looking at the classic ADA, and now the million other brands (UNS, Aqueon, etc.). Does anyone have any recommendations for tank brands and retailers? I'm probably looking for something like a 60P, and likely have to order...

    So I got a very large rimless aquarium 10ft long by 3ft wide and a top to bottom depth of 18inches. I custom ordered the dream tank from customaquariums.com because they seem to have a great reputation. I finally got around to finishing the plumbing etc and filled the tank to max capacity. I...

    I'm putting together a rimless tank (39" x 12" x 12") and will probably add a lid to it. Being such an odd size, I know I need to do a DIY lid. Nearly everyone I've seen online makes lids from either glass, polycarbonate or acrylic and then hang them inside the aquarium with clips, so the lid...

    Finally upgraded from the 25g cube, and let me tell you it's not very easy to find a 30-40g cube around here. Managed to find a beautiful 20x20x20 aquarium and some amazing driftwood at a local shop and we're off to the races. Nothing equipment wise has actually changed, still running: AI...

    This project's been a long time in the making and will likely be a while longer before there's any water in it. I'll be DIY'ing the light fixture, stand and autodoser. Main equipment as follows: Waterbox Clear 3620 3 x 24w T5HO Eheim 2217 Eheim 2215 Matheson 2-stage reg + 2 Fabco NV-55s +...

    Hi there! I recently ordered an AquaClear 50 Power Filter HOB to supplement filtration on a 90P heavily planted tank. The HOB was very loose and did not sit properly as the tank is rimless (ADA). It leaned back towards the wall and in no form to safely operate. (1) Does anyone have this...

    Traded out the old 75 for this beauty: Planting is very much in flux, but all the hardscape and plumbing is good to go. Going to try and keep it low maintenance this time around with crypts and ferns mostly.

    I’m looking to purchase my first freshwater planted tank that I plan to keep a school of smaller fish in as well. I’ve created a checklist of everything I’m planning on purchasing and would like a bit of input/suggestion before spending so much money. Checklist...

    I'm going to be getting a cat in the next couple of months and was curious about what people do to protect both cat and aquarium/fish. For context, I have a Fluval Spec V (5 gallon) which is rimless; I've been going lidless since I upgraded to the (16") Finnex FugeRay Planted+ (the light sits...

    It has been more than a few years, since I have messed with planted tanks. Long ways back, I had a 55g planted. I stumbled into saltwater tanks and the addiction took off from there. I currently have my saltwater tank on cruise control, letting all the coral grow. Time to start a 14 gallon...

    Good day, I thought I would try to document the progress for this tank. I received the tank last week, but the filter, light, and substrate are not arriving till next week. For now, I have decided on some curly twigs (Harry Lauder's walking stick which is a type of hazelnut). This came from my...
