    I have a pair of 36" E-series lights ($559 total) for a while now one of which continues to switch on and off every 5 min due to overheating, while the other only switches on and off maybe once an...

    September last year I ordered two Ecoxotic E-90 (36") LED lights and one of them immediately started switching off after about 5 minutes of being on and does that continuously. Stays off about 5 mins...

    Here's something that's not discussed too often but I'm sure the subject has it's place among fish keepers.

    LED advice?

    Setting up my first tank and the last piece of equipment I need to get is the overhead light. Since I'll be flirting with high temps and I'm trying not to invest in a chiller I'm leaning toward a...
  6. Filtering out a little suspected oil residue and very fine particles

    Just setting up this 125 and just now I have it filled with h2o and 3 in. of very thoroughly washed black diamond blasting sand which is actually broken up 'coal slag.' From what I"ve seen the tank...
  7. Metal hose clamps vs. plastic OEM hose clamps

    I'm setting up two large 2078 Eheim canister filters using green Eheim hose, the larger 16/22mm size. A 300w in-line hydor heater is being added in the middle of each of the tank return hoses. All...

    I've gotten advice to rinse a lot after the silicone cures. First time I've heard this. Is this suggested or necessary?
  9. How long cure time for 3/8" to 1/2" thick silicone?

    I've just covered the rear two 'clear' silicone seams on my tank with a layer of black silicone to hide them better. Thickest points for the new silicone are probably 3/8" but to be on the safe side...
  10. Filter inlet and outlet positions on a 125

    Building my first tank (125 gal) and I'm about to install two Eheim canister filters w/ corresponding inlets and outlets. Filters themselves will be located below in the stand.

    What I'm wondering...
  11. Thanks for the replies. Advice I've been given...

    Thanks for the replies.

    Advice I've been given so far is that basically all paint will eventually flake off of the silicone. Also, new silicone will not stick to cured silicone.

  12. Is there a black paint that will cover silicone?

    Anyone know of a black paint that I could use to cover the whitish silicone streak in the back of my tank? I have the back and side painted black on the outside and now the vertical white silicone...

    Thanks tall. I'm a little undereducated just now on how substrates limit your bottom dwellers. What are some of the substrates that are more bottom dweller friendly?

    CaribSea Flora Max vs. Eco-Complete

    What's the difference between these two? Both of these are made by CaribSea and are called 'Planted Aquarium Substrate.'

    Their description for Eco-Complete is considerably longer vs. Flora Max.
