Re: aquaplant help needed for 3 ft tank

When you get potting soil, make sure it's organic and has no added fertilizers - these will flood your tank with ammonia and phosphates faster than you can believe.

Get some egg crate and cut...

Oh no! Not another PFS question!

I was all set to go with the 50 lb. bag of Quikrete PFS at HD, and did a little extra research first (I know, I'm crazy that way; it's the teacher in me); does PFS (pool filter sand) cause brown...

Re: Fish Or Fishless Cycle Process?

If you go to your fish store and ask for a chunk of filter media out of one of their tanks.. you can jump start the cycle with that "bacteria" on the filter and just put it in your tank.

Re: New Tank

I believe you need to feed the bacteria with ammonia or keep fish in tank you have it in or BB will die off. How long it takes I have no idea maybe someone else can answer.

Re: BGA progress report:

Re: Changing substrate

Just my two cents worth. I have always wanted black sand in my aquarium. Now have it and wish I didn't. Every little piece of snail or fish poop shows up like a sore thumb. Even the roots to my very...

Re: Marineland bio wheel.

My opinion, HOBs have no place on that size tank. You need to either look at a really large canister filter like an Eheim 1200XL or you need to put a 55-75g sump underneath it. Add in that you may...

Re: 20g long planted tank

Good start except for the striped plant. That isn't aquatic and will rot in your tank. Need to pull it and put into flowerpot. Makes a nice house plant.

Re: Marineland bio wheel.

Re: LED Plant Lights?

Algae is not related to LEDs, or the LEDs is not the cause. Algae is controlled by the light, nothing more. Leave it on too long and you get algae. It is as simple as that. Most people choose to...
