Not only at night, but also 3 times during the day as well. No other fish or shrimp in the tank exhibit O2 deprivation, but as noted, I have decreased from 1bps to 1bp3s just in case.

I have a couple of new guppies in my established tank. They are keeping to the surface and are showing all the symptoms of an ammonia spike (redding of the gills and gasping at the surface), yet all...

I agree with everyone else here in regards to the internet as being the biggest boon to newbies. I've only been in this hobby a short time and I would have thrown my hands up and quit many times over...
Despite initial reservations with using the hydor mini heater pad, my tank's temp is maintaining a consistent 80 degrees. What I didn't expect was the level of...
This is the 1st I've ever heard of this. Since under the right conditions this plant thrives in water I'm not overly concerned about that aspect. My biggest concern is that the water wont be warm...

This is the final incarnation of the tank, filter installed and running now for a few hours and the smaller/tighter Anubias in place. You can see in the front corner where the current...

Once the planting was over, I wanted a slow way to introduce the water in such a way as to not make a mess of things, using the tank's lid that has a hole already in it with a single...

Forgive this 1st part as it was all taken with my iphone. Planting dwarf hairgrass can only be likened to inserting hairplugs:
Here are the 1st few plugs going in:...
Because of the small size, I was just going to use a big measuring cup so that I know what the overall water volume is.
Measuring cup > 0.9g-(hardscape+substrate), this makes it easy to figure...

Looking good, I like the way your running these.
If you your electronics store offers them, give the jeweled LEDs a shot. Of all the ones I tested they gave me the best dispersals without...
Okay, I`m going to let my noobness show a little here - buoyancy of stones? Do you mean the stone density vs the sand? This is my first foray into using stone in an aquarium. I would have thought...
Would this make the cycle more delicate to change then?
Are RCS alone enough to maintain a cycled tank? I'm thinking of potentially moving all the cardinal tetras out of my 12 into my upcoming 15, just leaving the shrimp behind. I have about 15 RCS and 2...
Well, instead of planting the tank today, I decided to redo the terrace (again). I went back and picked up some smaller okho stones (read tiny) and reterraced. I don't think this conforms in any way...

Thanks Semaj! :)
Its been awhile since I've posted an update so here we go:
The Blyxa took to the tank well, almost immeasurable loss while it acclimated. I even have new growth...
Your lucky! I wish my 7yr old boy showed this much interest. He only seems to be interested in Bettas (of which we don't own any), and very little interest in the rest of what happens in regards to...
TIAD! (today is acronym day)
I stopped off at the LFS on my way home today to buy some DHG, they had nice pads of roughly 4" x 5". Its now in my QT with my ANP.
This tank has turned into a...
round 2 in the scaping.
I added more sand up front and did a more pronounced terracing in the mid. This is a little closer to what I was looking for I think. The terrace sits about an inch higher...
Today saw the application of the same frosted glass film I applied to the 15g I'm putting together. I also spent an hour over the sink rinsing sand for the tank .. this one. I am SOOOOO not looking...
Correction: I listed the above light as a 9watt, its the 5watt version I have.
I found a clip on 9 watt at the same store my wife sourced the tank. Looking at the box its from china and definately not a name brand. Closest thing I could find on the box was a website address,...
Where do you go locally? Deer/Burnaby lake areas?
With only 6" empty I don't know if it has have enough room for even an HT10 in this little tank once I get the substrate in. I will start with the hydor pad and see where that gets me. I may have to...
Its what I love about being in North Burnaby, I'm 10-20 mins from just about everywhere :P
Thanks for the offer but we just don't get enough light to grow anything inside or out other than cactii.
Thats the one, it's just a 10 min drive from here. Was almost temped in getting a bonsai too, but alas, we don't see enough sun in the townhouse for that.
I will consider a desklamp as a last...
