    New to the planted tank world and looking for some general help. I kept saltwater reef tanks for years, recently went on vacation and everything went wrong lost all the coral and fish. Since I was starting new, I decided to try out the freshwater planted tank world. I have always loved the look...

    So right now, I have the Aqueon Quiet Flow 10 that came with my 10 gal and it has a strong flow, even after I added some filter sponges to it and a small sponge around the intake. It didn’t change anything. The flow spreads the sand substrate around to make a crater in the middle and it’s...

    Hi, So i have small dwarf golden barbs. They are found in lakes with a slow current. So... how do I determine best filter flow rate for them without sacrificing water filtration? are there signs to look for in the fish to know how they're coping? I'm running an aquaclear 20 in a 10 gallon...

    Water flow too is strong, I'm planning on getting a Krib pulcher in the future and they like a steady/low flow. I need the power head to benefit my plants but there isn't a built in way in the fan to adjust it. What can I do to make the flow softer?

    Hello, I manage a marine facility for a research lab. I have been feeding the animals through one flexible tube connected to a dosage pump and running into the end of the filtration chamber, which then flows into up to 8 tanks, until recently, when I had to add filters to the water input...

    I'm looking for suggestions for great filtration for low price. I have a freshwater with sand bottom with gravel underneath, I would love to be able to add extra media to it and changing flow rate would be a plus. I currently have two whispers(20i and 10i hob) and they keep the water clean but...

    My boarding school shuts off its power from 10:30 pm to 6:00 am, my question is does the planted tank need water flow at night? If so, is there an alternative to the plug in pump to make water flow at night? :icon_cry::icon_cry:

    I just wanted to know what size wave maker or power head should I get for my new 70gal planted? GPH, Singles or Doubles.
  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have a well-planted 10g (with AquaClear 30 on minimum). I just moved a piece of wood in the back and planted a few plants back there. The water got full of particles, cutting down on visibility, but cleared up within a half-hour. Suggestions, please, on how to stop detritus from...

    I've been playing around with different setups to get the best flow around the tank. The diagram below shows what I settled for.. are there any issues with this kind of setup? It does spin everything around.. but would it create dead space in the middle? The plants in the middle do sway ever so...
