    Tank Controller

    Has anyone used a tank controller for a freshwater tank? I've been thinking about using a Neptune Apex on my 150 when I set it up but it doesn't seem that controllers are as popular on the freshwater side of things as they are on the saltwater side. I guess I'm trying to figure out why they...

    T5 Ho Bulbs Recommendations

    Hello all, I've also posted this on plantedtank but am looking for all the advice I can get. We picked up a 150 gallon aquarium that measures 48"wx24"dx30"h and need to light it as I don't think that the included 80 watt florescent fixture will be sufficient for plants in that deep of a tank...

They have the 150 with stand, glass tops, and florescent light for $559.99, I got another 15% off for order online and pickup in store so the total for the tank was $475.99+tax. The have Fluval FX6 on sale in store for $249.99 so we...

    Aquatop Titanium Heater Question

    Does anyone have any experience with the Aquatop Titanium heaters? We are thinking of getting two of them for a 150 gallon we are planning on setting up. The manufacturer says one is enough for a 150 but I like some redundancy with heaters. Just looking for any opinions or experiences with them...

    Restarting Our 38g

    Hello all, just sharing for the fun of it. If anyone has advice I'm always happy to listen but I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time to get the tank to complete its cycle. After having the issues getting our tank to cycle we have started over and went in a slightly different direction...
