Hey guys. Have my 20 gallon running that I’m eating cardina in.
Crypts flamingo and undulata
Java ferns windelov and Malay red
Gonna let everything grow in for a few months before I add anything to it.
Hey guys. Got the tank to panted and wet.
Waiting on the filter from Amazon and I’m gonna mod it to be shrimp safe.
Plants are Java moss, anubius, bolbitis fern and a Marimo.
I hope that’s enough grazing area for it. I’m wanting to get some duckweed or some other floating stuff plant.
Hey guys! Looking for some planted nano tank inspiration for when I get my 2 gallon off the ground. Waiting on filtration to come in then it's off to the races.
I'm wanting to go with plants that aren't going to go into the substrate. Mosses, Buce, Anubias, Java Fern, etc.
Throw your pics...
I'm trying to get my feet into shrimp keeping and see a lot of information online about Caridina shrimp and needing a Gh of 3-6 and a Kh of 0-1.
I run an RO filter and my Gh comes out at 6-7 and my Kh comes out at 3-4 and was wondering if this is normal for water straight out of an...

Hey guys.I have a 4 bulb Odyssea fixture from when I had a 20 gallon reef. Could I change out the bulbs to a 6500k or would it just be better to get a new fixture.I have been looking at either LED or a 2 bulb T-5. I'm wanting to do a Southeast Asian tank in the 20 tall and I'm not 100% sure on...
I have decided to take the plunge into Betta breeding and I hope to get as much information from you guys as I can. I have been reading The Betta Bible by Martin Brammah. I'm not sure if it is outdated or not.
My other has bred Bettas before and will allow me to try my hand at it with a couple...
I finally went to Lowe's and got some tubing that is the right size for my filter and now I want to find some lily pipe that would work. The tubing is 3/4 ID and 5/8 OD. The largest lily pipe that I am showing is in a 16mm ID by 22 mm OD. Would that work or do I need to come up with a different...
I've been bouncing some ideas around in my head for the last few days on what I should do with my 20 gallon tall tank.
I need to build a stand for it first and get all my equipment. I'm just doing my research first.
My idea for a stand is a stand/curio cabinet crossover with the...
I've been thinking about my light for when I set up my 20 gallon. I have a 4 bulb T-5 Odessea fixture. I plan on changing the bulbs in it. I know it is going to be a lot of light. Will that cause me problems down the road, or will I be alright when I'm dosing CO2?
Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out how to attach an in line diffuser to my fluval 206 but I'm not sure how to attach one to the ribbed tubing. Any ideas on how to either attach it or change out the tubing? I was also looking into lily pipes. What are the benefits to a lily pipe?
Hey guys. I've been mulling over the idea of turning my empty 20 gallon into a planted tank. I've been researching and I've decided to go with a Citric Acid DIY CO2. I'd like to find a solenoid that I attach to the airline so that I can control it to come on 1 hour before my lights come on and...
Here is the thread as promised. If I could figure out how to post photos, it would be even better. Until then, it is a 20 gallon tall with a corner L shaped internal overflow in the back left corner with the intake in the front left and the output on the right side closest to the back of the...
Hello from Utah!
I'm glad to find a forum that is a mesh between Saltwater and Freshwater. I have owned aquariums my entire life and I have learned, and continue to learn, as much as I can about them.
I am starting a post in the DIY section to get some ideas on a 20 gallon AIO that I built...
