So here is what I have now-
56 gallon column -2 CFL 23w 65K daylight bulbs, one colored "moonlight" aqua bulb. This has REALLY brightened up my tank. WOW. Added 1 week ago. I turn...
The other ones have reflectors :D I have a three socket system 60w max on each socket. I don't think I need that much for my 29. But I could use two day bulbs (lower watt) and one moonglow at...
I think any dechlorinator is safe. If you want to be super sure you can use Repti Safe by zoo med, or Flukers--But I think they are all the same. I've never had a problem with mine and my frogs.

Still same readings today. No ammonia---buuut would the stability be causing that?
I'd love to try and add an angel tomorrow---dunno though.
Snails are pretty sensitive to everything IMO. You could get a magnet scrubber if it's a problem.
That's why I've always gone with water containers---I can take mine out and give them a quick...
Here is me, trying to save a little green---so I can get MORE greens!
I have kept reptiles for a LOOOOOONG time as well as fish and I have quite a few Incandescent lighting fixtures laying around...
Personally you filter is just going to be a mess. There is no point to this other that to increase the humidity IMO, and I would personally use an ultrasonic fog generator for this (I've used these...
What do you mean by waited a little bit? Same day or a few days later? From what I understand it really depends on your fish load in the original aquarium. After reading everything I really don't...
I also have Anubias, Crypts, and Swords with my goldfish. They really don't munch on these. Occasionally I will have a floater due to the bumping them around. I also keep larger Nerite (small horned...

OK, is it weird that my tank cycled in 1 1/2 weeks? I have 0ppm Am, 0ppm Nitrite, and 2ppm Nitrate for 2 days now.
I know I seeded but---really? Should I wait just in case?
I did also use...
Thanks Cliff! Yea, I'm not wanting to get too crazy. I like lower maintenance.
dbosman---You were NOT KIDDING. Those prices are MUCH better!! With that I might be able to afford enough for a...
I have a 55 tall tank with 2 single light strips (t8)
I have had really good luck with crypts, swords, anubias (no luck with micro sword and hair grass) so far. Have been adding Flourish excel...

Going to grab a brand new MasterTest tomorrow. I was just reading the post about test kits, yea---I would say they are over 2 years. Time for new ones. I wish I could order online (I would assume...

Just to show this is what I seeded my filter with---filter floss was blue heh. I dumped the crud in there too. Was 1 filter pad from my Rena Filstar XP2 (I have several)

I used the AqAdvisor and it looks like I could still add more. YAY! Maybe I'll leave it be. Understocked is better anyway.
Ammonia is sitting at .25 this AM after a 20% water change last night. ...

I'll do that ASAP Lady Hobbs, darn it I KNEW I forgot something.
andreahp - I'm really digging on these Bloodfins, I think I might just settle with a couple more of these instead of neons. The...

Here's a pic too. Feel free to point out if I did something wrong (yes, I'm serious).

Tested this AM and we are up to 0.50. Will be doing a small water change later tonight. Bloodfin are schooling, seem happy. Platy is hiding, came out for first feed though. Fingers crossed.

I tossed all of the plants I could into this one, Hope I didn't make a huge mistake tossing in a huge amazon sword... I figured the more the merrier. Got some Water Wysteria as well...

Thanks, I'll turn it down a little. Trying to keep it up there for the bacteria! Settled on 3 Bloodfin and a Platy. Got a bunch more plants too! Here we go!!

New 29 gallon setup about 4 days ago, letting the substrate settle. Water is now clear. Penguin HOB 350 GPH (Dual Biowheels) Would like a canister but I have no where to put it. I figure since this...
I have been fish keeping for a while, ever since I worked at a pet store when I was in my teens. Something about them is so stress relieving!!
