    Both 6500K and 10000K color temperatures correspond to tropical sunlight at different times of day. Both work perfectly fine and equally fine for freshwater plants. The popular myth about 10000K...

    "Forgoing carbon" has no specifics with regard to a concrete filter. No matter what kind of filter you have, activated carbon has no meaningful place in everyday aquarium filtration. Just remove it...

    There's no need to change carbon simply because the carbon is not supposed to be there in the first place. Activated carbon has a very narrow and very specific purpose in fish tanks: 1) to remove...

    Of course, there's also such thing as so called "wet-dry canister" filters. When it comes to the principle of operation, such filers are essentially wet-dry filters masqueraded in a canister-like...

    "Never clean the sponge" is not the right approach. You should clean it from time to time. The cleaning process involves submerging the sponge in tank water and squeezing it gently a few times. That...

    You are contradicting yourself. First, you talk about pre-cycling tank with some "disposable" fish. That would indeed qualify as pre-cycling. Then you claim that I'm talking about the same thing when...

    What "black rim" are you talking about exactly? Is it a part of the tank? Or a part of the stand? What material is that "black rim" made of? Is it metal or plastic?

    You mean pictures of the tank with lights? Or the fixture itself? Here's some pictures of the tank. Two 30" strips next to each other are a precise fit on top of this tank.
