I guess you can interpret my advice as a “negative reply” if you want, but it was just meant to be honest advice. You have fish coming that you’re admittedly not prepared to take care of. If you’re...

My advice is to cancel your order and do your research *before* you order your fish.
If you're really set on that lighting system, then as people have said, you're going to need CO2 and fertilizer supplementation. Simply put, you have more light than your plants can currently use. ...

Can you explain this? I've been doing it like most other people have described...fill a bucket with tap water of the same temp as the tank water, add dechlorinator (tetracare aquasafe) and go.
Thanks guys. I will definitely be getting a canister filter when I get the bigger tank. Also, probably an air pump of some kind and maybe a Co2 system.
I was hoping to get the big tank this...
I made an introduction in the Introduce Yourself section, but figured I would do the same here since this seems to be where I’m spending the most time, and also since I finally got...
I have been lurking on the forums for the past few weeks, soaking up all the information I can about freshwater aquariums and wanted to finally introduce myself.
