    55 Gallon Tank Your Thoughts on Adding Angelfish.

    I read a lot of sad stories about sepaes after getting them, I noticed they would chase the gouramis every now and then. After adding the other tetras though, they really calmed down and they're actually quite mellow now. Also, after reading more on angelfish, I think I can get away with a...

    Frogbit Submersible?

    Thanks for the suggestion everyone. This stuff grows like weeds so I might just try putting one bunch of it down there and see how it fairs after a couple of days. Thanks again.

    A good run in at Lowe's

    You know, I didn't even expect any kind of misunderstanding like that either. It's a shame that this kind of thing has to be a worry for people now.

    Question Lighting Purchase

    You know what, I didn't even think about that. If you do get one of the bulbs that isn't full spectrum, you wouldn't have bad algae growth. I'm not sure if the fish need those high spectrum bulbs though, might help with their coloring or something. But yeah. I'm about to put together my own...

    Question Lighting Purchase

    I've typically found that if you want anything for a fish tank, it's generally cheaper at a department store.
