    Help I Need More Plants... Maybe Co2 Too?

    Hey everyone! So I’ve recently upgraded my 28g bowfront. I added a piece of driftwood (needed 2 rocks to hold it down until it waterlogs) and also changed my lighting to 2 65w CFL bulbs. I upgraded my bulbs because I thought the Vals needed some more light. They’ve bounced back a little bit...

    Question Lighting On A Budget

    Hey Everyone! I currently have what I would call a low planted 28g bowfront tank (18" deep) with a Marineland LED Strip light. I'm growing 1 Aponogeton ulvaceus and trying to get a few Vals to grow. The Aponogeton ulvaceus is growing pretty well, but the Vals are struggling. I've had them...

    Question Is This Sand Stone?

    Hey everyone, So the other day I got an awesome piece of driftwood from my setup, in retrospect I should have taken a picture when I got it as it's currently boiling on the stove to get out the tannins (Or what I can). But I'll post that later! As the driftwood isn't already water logged...

    Help New Plant Melt?

    Hi all, So I have developed this bad habit of going to my LFS, telling him what I want, get a suggestion and then forget to ask what I'm buying! LOL I did it with my aponogeton ulvaceus and now I just did it again. I went in and told him I wanted more plants, but not nearly as big as the...

    Question I Need To Change My Stand...what To Do?

    Hey Everyone, So I've hit a little bit of a conundrum. As some of you know from helping me sooooo tremendously, I upgraded my 10 gal setup to a 28 gal bowfront last month. Poor planning allowed me to buy the new tank without ensuring that it would fit on the cabinet I had the 10 gal on...

    Question Is My Mystery Snail Ok?

    Hey everyone! I feel like all my posts are just asking, I hope I get to a point where I can share some knowledge. I've got 2 Mystery snails in my tank, a gold one and a brown one. The brown one is fine. Over the past few days he's be hanging all over the gold one, more than normal. When I...

    Question Is This Too Much For My Tank?

    Hey everyone, I wanted to get thoughts on if upping my stock is a good idea or not in my 28 gallon bowfront. I'm not looking to do this right away, I think I have a little mini cycle going on since moving my fish from a 10 gal to the new tank, so it'll probably be a month before I add any...

    Fluval C4 Impeller Noise

    Hi everyone, So I recently bought a 28 gallon setup that came with a Fluval C4. I didn't put the filter on at first because I had a AC30 that came from my 10 gallon and it was already seeded. Well, I wanted to start running the C4 so I can use the AC30 at some point back on the 10 gallon for...

    Question Are Dried Out Bio Rings Still Effective?

    Hi all, I recently purchased a new 28 bow front to upgrade from my 10 gallon. YAY! I already had an AC30 that I brought over from my 10 gallon and it seems to be doing OK, but I have been toying with the idea of also using the Fluval C4 Power Filter as well, possibly replacing the AC30 at...

    Hi guys, So this is a little bit of an extension from my first post which you guys have been an awesome source of info! Thank you again! This week I'm buying a used 29 gallon tank from Craigslist. It's currently holding guppies, but I'm not taking those. He's selling it with a filter, but I...

    Help Frustrated With 10 Gallon Setup

    Hi everyone! New kid on the block here James! J Firstly, sorry about the long first post… I’m not totally new to the hobby as I kept a couple of aquariums when I was in HS. A Fancy Goldfish tank and a Convict Cichlid setup, BUT that was many moons ago and I knew nothing about the nitrogen or...
