    Hey guys, so I recently set up another dirted tank, paired with some fluval stratum and seachem flourite. It's my 36 gallon bow front. Manzanita and Dragonstone hardscape. Currently I have a Finnex Ray II that is putting off about 50-60 Par at 17", correct me if I am wrong. I have a photo period...

    **If you want to avoid the intro fluff, skip down to the ******* :-) I'm an old reefer that now wants a planted tank. The wife has a bad taste in her mouth from all the money (and time) I spent with the reef setup. BUT, I still have all my lights and whatnot so I shouldn't have to spend money...

    I am a new user to Plantedtank forums. My name is Mike and I have been in the aquarium hobby for a little over 10 years now. About a year ago I started my first planted tank with a 55 gallon. Now I have moved onto a 90 gallon acrylic tank with Co2 and high light and a smaller 10 gallon planted...

    I don't think I really qualify as a lurker. I joined back in March 2009, when I lived in AZ, and was thinking about setting up a tank. I didn't at that time, and didn't visit regularly for a bit. Then I thought about it again, would visit for a bit, not get it done and stop visiting… This time...

    Hi everyone, I've finished two new prototypes and wanted to show them off! The first is a desktop aquarium with the filter outflow that connects to a drip wall. For those who aren't familiar with drip walls, they're primarily used in high-end European vivariums for dart frogs, geckos, etc...

    Just bought a couple bags of eco-complete for a new tank. Do I drain the water from the bag first, or just dump the entire bag into the tank?
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all! New to the hobby and starting my second tank. I made some mistakes with my first and do not want to repeat them, so I'm looking for some advice. I know this info is scattered within the forum, but I would like to have a discussion specifically on prepping a tank. I'm hoping to hone...
  9. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hi everybody! I am quiet the novice in this field (long time reader, first time asker :hihi:), so any help/experiences would be great. Sorry if this is put in the wrong area or if I do something wrong! Here's my situation: I have a pet turtle and want to grow some aquatic plants for him to...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Please help me prepare for this substrate. Its the Akadama Double Red Line 15L bag. I've heard so many good things about this substrate so I would like to get it for my final attempt at raising high quality CRS shrimps. I am afraid I'll have to get a brand new batch all together since all my...

    Hello all, I have been inspired by many tank builds that I have followed to create a planted shrimp tank of my own. I know that 3 gallons is relatively small to keep cherry red shrimp, but I have read that people are successful in breeding these guys if the colonies are kept small. However...
