    Can I Add On To A Stand?

    Hi so about a month ago I purchased a 150g tall. I built a stand for it and did a water leak test after I resealed it. On the 7th day, it leaked! So I sold it and planned on getting another 150. I found a cheap oceanic 210 and had to have it. Can I just add on to the previous stand? It's super...

    Fish That WON'T Eat Baby Mystery Snails

    Hi, I have a 20g tank where I am hatching a few clusters of mystery snail eggs. I have one clutch that just hatched. Are there any fish that won't eat the baby snails? I'm sure a pleco wouldn't, but they poop too much and usually are too big for a 20g. Any ideas??

    Tall aquarium

    Is two 6500k bulbs good enough for growing plants when my hex tank is 31" tall. Not sure if the lumens are strong tough to reach throughout the whole tank. If not, what do you recommend?

    Bulb length question?

    I bought some 6500k bulbs yesterday to replace my 4100k bulbs. So I measured my previous bulbs that I had, and I got 17 3/4". I went ahead and bought the 18" because I assumed bulbs didn't come in quarter sizes. Well now I'm second guessing myself. Do you think 18" will be too big?

    what is the difference between water conditioner and dechlorinator?

    So this might be a stupid question (I'm sure it is), but what is the difference between water conditioner and dechlorinator? I could have sworn I've read that conditioner takes out the chlorine? Correct me if I'm wrong..

    Lighting for Hexagon aquarium

    I currently have a 60 gallon aquarium. It's 31" tall and each hexagon side is 12". The two bulbs that came with it are 8 watts each. Is that enough lighting for plant growth?
