LOL - with the bright new light, I can see all the algae everywhere! I'll post a pic after I've cleaned the tank up.
Don't know if anyone here has tried BuildMyLED.com - I got a 36" fixture from them about a month ago and couldn't be happier! The build is solid, the lights are so bright I purchased a dimmer to...

Thanks very much for the link - I'm looking at the site and may give them a call to discuss what I need. You're right - all the reviews are very positive which certainly gives me a warm-and-fuzzy...

I currently have a T5 4-bulb fixture over my 46bf, but half the fixture has quit on me so I'm left with only 2 working bulbs. The fixture is only a year old too, and was the replacement for another...
Slip a sponge over the filter intake and your shrimp will be protected from being "inhaled." I found a couple of places carry attachments that replace the intake screen - Drs. Foster and Smith carry...
Lady Hobbs told me about this:
Pick up a jar of ALUM in the spice section of your grocery store. Add a couple tablespoonsful to a bucket of water and drop in the plants. Leave them in for a day...
I've been using their dry PMDD mix for about 2 years and my plants are all healthy and growing. I mix it with water before adding to the tank (although it can be...

I've been eyeing LED's for my 46 for a while now, but many of the fixtures out there just aren't right for planted tanks. Like many new forms of lighting, they seem geared toward salt instead of...
That second female who produced only one good egg - is this her first clutch? Just wondering if she'd get better after a few more tries.
We all know some fish will spawn repeatedly before finally...

He's a great looking boy, and yes he DOES look older than 7 weeks! Wish I could hear his laugh....
I LOVE his name! Strong, masculine and just a bit uncommon. Do you call him "Ollie" or "Mike?"...
What a mental image that conjures up!! Something with tanned bodies, sunshine and lots of sand....
Or a Victoria's Secret "fashion show?"
I work at The Hartford Insurance Company and some of you may have seen what's happening to us. The Ivory Tower folks have decided we'd do better in pieces than as "One Hartford."
My job has been...

They are a little slow to ship, but once the package is in transit, it comes quickly.
Good prices and selection, too.
I know you said you have an incubator all set to go, but how are the eggs incubated in nature?
Does the female tend them or leave them to the Fates?
Spongebob and Squidward have very distinctive houses, so they are easily recognized and therefore marketable.
Patrick lives under a rock. The last time rocks were marketable was in the 1970's and...
I use Flourish Excel in all my tanks, but the 46 has only crypts which are very slow growing. I was trying to shift them into high gear, so to speak, so that's why I added the CO2.
I run my Python from the tank, over the top of a chair, a tall cabinet and along the bathroom counter to the tub. I also tend to put a couple feet of hose down into the tank to make sure it doesn't...
My fish aren't quite that bad off, so far (knock wood). I just don't know about any long-term effects from this.
This situation was my own damn fault, too. I forgot to clean the sponge I'd put...
Assassin snails breed far slower than the pest snails they prey upon. Plus you need both a male and a female Assassin before you'll get babies.
Pest snails are hermaphroditic, which means they...
I have one of the larger sized Aqueon siphons and I found that the "bucket clip" they included in the package is also just the right size to hold a Python tube to the side of a tank.
Oh My Lady - I know it's not right but I just had to laugh at the mental picture of yeast glop "decorating" your room....:hmm3grin2orange:
I'd love to go pressurized but the budget just can't...
Yesterday morning, as I was getting ready for work, I noticed my 46 was extremely cloudy to the point of being opaque. I had the airline from my CO2 bottle tucked into the filter intake so the CO2...
I just replaced the year-old bulbs over my 25g tank and the plant response was amazing. Proof to me that it was a good thing.
A tip I read somewhere was to take a permanent marker and write the...

I just replaced a Rena SmartHeater with a Fluval E. I originally had it in a corner next to the filter intake, but there just wasn't enough water movement there. I put it in the middle of the tank,...
I've been watching the old MI series from the 60's courtesy of Netflix. I'm still on the first year and one thing I've noticed is Dan Briggs' AQUARIUM!!
I can't be sure of the size, but it's...
