    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...
  4. Asking advice on LED light for planted 46bf

    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...

    Another plant treatment that works well

    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...
  8. Looks awesome!!

    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...

    New at this?

    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....

    A little help from my friends

    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."

    Anybody shop at Big Al's?

    www.bigalspets.com

    They are a little slow to ship, but once the package is in transit, it comes quickly.

    Good prices and selection, too.

    Amazing process

    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?

    It's all marketing

    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...

    Thanks Aeonflame

    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 wasn't...

    I do the same, sort of.

    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...

    Not quite that bad

    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...

    One other point

    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...

    From: FWIW Department

    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.

    Simple tip
