    Hi, A newcomer to planted aquascapes.. I have an 90 liters/ 21 gallon acrylic tank with dimensions 68 L * 50 H * 45 W dimensions. This came pre-fit with 1x 15W and 1x 10 W T8 lights. Later came to know that this isn't enough for growing medium light plants. As the water column is over 50 cms...

    Hi all, I am currently running two 29g tanks. Carbon copies of each other. The lights I use are 30" catalina dual 24watt t5ho. I use no Co2 and I have zero algae issues. Each tank is heavily planted with java fern, lace java and jungle val. I am moving. My new landlord is allowing me to go back...

    I am fairly new to the hobby, and am starting a 5.5 gallon planted tank. I recently purchased an Odyssea 14" 24watt power compact looking at a 6500K bulb. Along with my Aquatek mini Co2 regulator, will this be enough light to grow an HC carpet in Aquasoil Amazonia? Pardon the pun but I'm not up...

    Hey guys! I've been doing some reading up on certain deficiencies because of melting and yellowing leaves. My tank is heavily stocked and I would 't be surprised if they've sucked up every last trace of nutrient in the tank. I dose Flourish twice a week and Flourish Excel every day. I'm 4 weeks...

    I have a 45g tank, 36" L, and I've been looking around trying to find lights to fit over it. Problem is, most lights are either 24", 48", or even larger. Anyone know of a good place to pick up fluorescent strips in my size? What I ultimately want to do is get T8's, either two 2 lamps and combine...

    Is it uncommon for people to mount multiple fixtures onto one tank? I'm looking into buying a 29G and its hard to find a 30" fixture thats capable of around 96Watts, so would it be unheard of for me to mount 2 48 Watt fixtures on there? Or is that just crazy talk? It'd be about 3.3 WPG --> I...

    Okay, so I'm looking into buying a 29g and I definitely want to plant it heavily. A lot of the plants I like require high light so I'm thinking 3+ watts per gallon? It a Current USA 30" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x24W 10K/Freshwater Its only 48 watts each, so I was thinking what if I...

    I have 56 watts (T5: 2 x 10 k, 2 x actinic) over a 15 gallon aquarium. I had no (little) algae problems until I did a massive tank re-planting; I exchanged about 50 % of the plants, disturbing 50 % of the substrate. Now I have green water. I don't use fertilizer or CO2. I use a 12-hour...
