    Planted Tank Lighting For 6 Foot Tanks?

    So I have been toying with the idea of getting a 125g tank, and I know in the future I want to have 180g tanks, but I also like planted tanks. Does anybody know what lights work good for these tanks? Anything comparable to the Fluval 3.0? That's what light I currently use on my 4ft tanks, and...

    Affordable Lighting for Planted 20g Long Tank?

    So I have decided to setup my wall of 20g Longs so I have two longwise side by side stacked 3 high. My goal is to have all of them planted with mainly moss or easy plants like vals, suswassertang, java ferns, etc. Mainly looking for some 4ft light I can put acrossed them so the majority of...

    Best Fast Growing Plants for 20g Long?

    I currently have a setup of 4 20g long tanks with apistos and corys in them and am looking for input for suggested plants that I might be able to add to this assortment. Preferably shorter tanks, as working in them with leaves, or constantly having to trim stems would be rather annoying. It is...

    Best Metal 40B Double Stack Stand?

    So I have been thinking of swapping out my 29g double stack for 40Bs, but the problem I am running into is finding a nice metal stand to do it with. I can get one for about 100$ custom made, but who knows how long that will take to get to me. Just somewhat fishing for options. I have two other...

    Will Crypts Regrow From Broken Off Leaves?

    Most of my experience with plants is stem plants and moss. I seem to have a gift with java ferns as well, but besides the point. I recently bought like 7 species of crypts at a swap meet and I put each type in different tanks, because I would never keep any of them straight. The crypt in...

    75g Spotted Congo Puffers and Leupoldi Angelfish

    It's been a while since I have shared much, but here is an update on one of my tanks with a few photos of my fish. Attached at bottom. My one Luepoldi Angelfish (Pterophyllum leupoldi) was looking really nicely colored up, and the pictures really don't do it justice. Also got a few images of...

    Using RO Unit Waste Water in Planted Tanks?

    Now this might come off as a great idea, but the waste water, from my understanding, is the solutes that are 'washed away' from the RO water. My Tap is about TDS 70, my RO water (not ro/di, just ro) is TDS of 6 and the waste is about TDS 110. The thought is that the waste water is a more...

    Anybody Ever Raised Bolivian Rams?

    I have had this pair of Bolivian Rams for a bit in my 75 community tank. They are a pair, not the happiest, but they get the job done every now and again. I just found a nice clutch of eggs on a rock in there with the female guarding it. I have been considering raising Bolivian Rams just...

    Anybody Else Own a Peacock Eel?

    Just curious as to if others have this little feller. I picked mine up at a petsmart of all places and he is doing great, a little fat now, but doing good! He is currently in QT (Observation, no meds) with a few other recent additions and he always hides. This really isn't an issue for me, I...

    What is Your Favorite 'Cookie Cutter' Aquarium Stocking?

    I have really been thinking about it, and with community tanks, that term can represent pretty much any combination of fish. I am starting this to really give ideas to others of actual working tanks that people have in their home. It would be cool for people to share their tank size, stocking...

    Cheap CW010 (Orange Laser Cory) on AquaHuna

    So usually I have seen orange lasers running about 17-25$ each at local fish stores. I saw something on social media about Aquahuna selling 4 orange lasers for 40$, so 10$ each. In addition to this, I have nothing but excellence regarding their shipping process. Priority shipping is only $12.99...

    Cory ID: Labeled as C. burgessi - Image Attached.

    I saw these little beauties, nice size, good amount in the tank, very active and eating. I decided to pick them up for a breeding project. Might as well try hand at it. The store had them labeled as Cordoras Burgessi, which per planet catfish, C. Burgessi does not have spots, but these do. Not...

    Has Anybody Here Bred Emperor Tetras or Denison Barbs?

    This is a really off the wall one, but I am very interested in these species. I am considering down the line acquiring a nice big school of emperor tetras and (denison barb) roseline sharks for a large tank, but I would like a group of them that will grow slowly. I have seen a few videos where...

    Treating Saltwater Ich With Copper? Could I Use The Tank After For A Reef?

    As the title implies, my fish have ich and in the future, I would like to use it as a reef, or basically a soft coral farm. On hand I do have cupramine and a copper test kit, so I basically have it all to go ahead and start treating. It is a 40B tank, but I was told any rock and the tank that...

    At Least Half The Cory's I Bring Home Die. Getting Really Disgruntled...

    So a few days ago I finally came a crossed Adolfoi Corys, after searching for months. I was extremely excited and instantly picked up 6 of them. Also, from the same place I got 3 Hasbrosus Corys (to add to my current 5). It has only been two days since I have brought them home and 4/6 of the...

    Clash Of Clans Anybody?

    I used to play this back in high school and it has since been a few years. I have worked up like 60 dollars in google play rewards so I figured I'd get back into clash. Just curious, I am thinking about starting a new clan, but have since noticed that the global chat feature is gone since I...

    Best Matten Filter For 20G Long Tanks?

    So I am looking at setting up a system of 20G long tanks, well more so improving the system. Primarily it will be for corydoras, but I like the idea of a matten filter because I can get some lateral flow rather than just vertical so the tanks don't go stagnant. Though I am not against sponge...

    Pico/Nano Reef Questions

    So let me throw this out there. I have never really owned a saltwater aquarium. My experience with salt is mainly on fries, but I have a Green Spotted Puffer in almost full salt and Figure 8 Puffers in low end brackish. I have a 7.5g Cube tank I built that I need to reseal and it had been my...
