I also use Paypal not just for ebay buy for a lot of my online purchases. I also utilize bill me later on a lot because of the 6 months same as cash that they always run.
Nothing is going to grow with the current light. You will probably need about at least 60watts of lighting but more importantly you need the correct spectrum of light. For freshwater that is going to...
Setting up a QT tank is simple. Any small 10g (what I have) bare bottom I have a few plastic plants for comfort if needed. Essentially I fill it and get it to temp. I will buy some fish and bring...
welcome back... Well with less stress and and living in Texas a 38g will not do... I think we need a 125g tank build thread! thumbs2:
I suspect that most of your fish are still juveniles. As they reach maturity this is when things will likely change.
A lighting upgrade will definitely be needed but again how much light depends...

I think the floaters will work very well in the 72g. It has a high volume (5-600 gph) but low flow rate. the 55g on the other hand...well I will have to experiment a bit there. I am only out $40 if...
Hi Richard welcome to the forums. I suspect that I am not the only one who is going to first point out that your tank is overstocked and probably has some fish in it that should not be together...

My phosphates are only at .5ppm. I looked into replacing the bulbs but from what I have read I can only replace with the exact 54watt t5 ho bulbs From what I can tell I cant use a NO t5 in a HO...

The angels are probably 3 - 3-1/2" right now. ohh hatchets might look nice in there... might just have to see whats in stock at the lfs.

I ordered the suspension kits for my lights and will start by raising then 12" and adding some floating plants. I am also going to get on a regular schedule adding Flourish Comprehensive to the WC. I...

I have blocked the light partially until my new plants arrive. Lights are on for 7 - 7-1/2 hours right now. Thats what they have been since I built the tank.

GH = 107.4
KH = off the chart???

Nope not giving up but changing out the lights is not an option right now. The fixtures don't allow me to run only one bulb and they are new as well. I would likely be more apt to invest in a co2...

Hi Talldutchie - thanks for the help on this - here are the current params:
Ammonia - 0ppm

Seeing yellowing of some of the leaves and some...

OK here we go...
I have 2 tanks (See Sig). Both are planted and were intended to be low - med light tanks. I am running identical lights (108watt t-5 HO for fresh water). My Plants for the most...
I use both a hob and a canister on my 55. Specifically a AquaClear 70 and an Rena Filstar XP3 which I think goes under the name of Rena Filstar L or XL now.

:yeahthat: that is what I do too!

Thanks for all of the detailed info! I am going to try and disable one bulb and see if that helps. I don't have much natural daylight to contend with since the tanks are in my basement office. If I...

I don't mind it on the wood so much as I do on the plants. It would be a major undertaking to pull the wood. It is all screwed to slate and buried in the substrate. I would be happy if I could keep...

I don't know if I can just run one bulb in my light. I make about a 25% PWC weekly albeit have been a bit lax recently due to renovations to the house. The problem existed prior to...

Yes you are correct 2 t-5 HO for fresh water. I really do not fert much. I use fert tabs occasionally for the rooted plants 3 months or so but less than the recommended dosage. I also use Excel and...

Korith, this is not a new tank. Just seems odd that it would be diatoms.

OK question about brown somewhat fuzzy algae. It seems I have been battling this for a while in both tanks it is not horrible but a bit annoying. A lot of you have planted tanks and they stay so...
Yes that was a painful one. At least I didn't pay full price for them and they actually refunded most of the cost to me. I have found myself to be quite busy these days and maintaining both tank is...
True but the danios were in the 55 originally. I am not going down the Cardinal road again. The 72 was initially going to be only for a Cardinals. Started with 30 and well there are 3 left.
