    Emperor 400 HOB filter

    I use to keep the frames when I used those filters, and place this, on the back of the frame. Cut them a bit long and let them hang over the top and they stay in place. Chemical filtration is your choice. I generally don't use it, but its up to you. I would not bother with the matrix. You...

    First Try at Aquascaping

    It's a good place to start. Got any fish in there? They make the best fertilizer.

    Plant photosynthesis question: CO2 and Oxygen

    No one has said an air stone does not gas off CO2. It just does not do it to the effect that it will negatively impact the plant growth. And if it is, just add a little more CO2. Pretty simple.

    Tank Light Help

    Getting a timer would be the best idea. They will adjust to whatever schedule you have the timer on.

    What to start with?

    No its not necessary. And if you get bit by the plant bug, it can be added later. Just get low-light easy to keep plants and you should be fine. Sounds like you got a nice size tank. Good luck with it @Aquaddiction UK seems to have all the answers to plants Shoot them a message if you need...

    Senegal bichir Air Pump Required?

    Bichirs can breath air. That is probably why it is going to the surface. What size tank, and what kind of filter do you have?

    Can BB form whitish mats?

    I'm not sure what that is. Hopefully someone else can help. Very strange that it happened after you added Stability.

    Can BB form whitish mats?

    That's weird. I've used stability a lot and never had this happen. Got a pic of it?

    Plant photosynthesis question: CO2 and Oxygen

    I never said it was needed. I said it will not waste CO2. And no, adding an air-stone to a tank with fish being suffocated by CO2 will not immediately help them. It does not introduce oxygen into the tank fast enough. I've done this myself. Have you? Adding an air-stone to a tank with CO2 would...

    Plant photosynthesis question: CO2 and Oxygen

    Ever try it? It's not like CO2 is expensive. If you think you are wasting it by running an airstone, increase the CO2 by about 1 BPS. It will counter act what gassing off is being done. It will not drop your CO2 levels "by a large amount". Since it sounds as if you have tried this, what is...

    Plant photosynthesis question: CO2 and Oxygen

    If you like the look of bubbles, you can use them in any planted tank. Low-light, medium-light, high-light. It will not reduce the amount of CO2 to the point of "wasting" it in a pressurized set up. And in a low-light tank, it is said to help bring CO2 from the air into the tank. This is a...

    Plant photosynthesis question: CO2 and Oxygen

    Even with pressurized CO2, you can use a airstone 24/7. In a lowlight set up, some suggest using them 24/7.

    Solo Biggish Fish Ideas

    I'd try and find a Midas or Trimac myself. You could keep a fancy pleco as long as it stayed around 12" with either of those.

    Compatibility with cichlids and oddball fish

    I wouldn't keep a datnoind with a cichlid in that size of tank. Dats are more agressive. It might work, or might not. Either way you would need a silver dat to fit in that tank. All the others get too big. I agree with slayer5590 about the endli. That size of tank would make a nice species...

    Do stem plants need to have root tabs?

    Did I mention algae? And I think you mean, nutrients are a cause of algae... Root tabs are not a necessity in any tank. Dry ferts will take care of any plants needs.

    May I add a Red Tailed Shark to my 55 gallon aquarium?

    A red tail shark should be fine in your set up.

    Do stem plants need to have root tabs?

    I've never liked root tabs for any plants. I have found that you have much more control by using dry ferts. You can give exactly what is needed and if you notice deficiencies, it's easy to fix. Root tabs make it easy to over dose, or not have enough fertilizer.
