Tank Height by Ryan H.
For several years I've had a 20in tall 75G tank. I am going to replace my tank soon and was thinking about going with a 24in tall tank. Is anyone else using a 24in tall tank? I know that the light hitting the bottom would be weaker as a result. I am already running 200W PC lights which I think...

CO2 Diffusion by gizmo
Is there a linear relation on CO2 diffusion in Hard/soft water ? I ask this because yesterday on my weekly water change I've added 25% RO water. What I did notice is that at this stage (GH was lowered by 2 degrees) that the CO2 diffuses much better. before the water change, the bubbles...

Plants by Jaco van Niekerk
Hi I regard myself as very new to to keeping fish. I enjoy it very much and have read up a lot about the various species and tank setups I monitor the water closely. Nitrite is somewhat high - but not dangerous. I fancy real plants, but have been rather unsucessful with them. I am reading a...

additional aeration at night needed with C02 injection? by Dave M. Picklyk
I just thought I'd toss this around the newsgroup and see what kind of opinions I get: What does everyone think about adding more aeration at night when the lights are off and plants have reversed their gas roles. I have seen a few of my fish dwelling towards the water surface at night. I...

CO2 - Aqualine Buschke, Milwaukee, or Aqua Medic? by Sidney
I'm looking for a complete CO2 system with a solenoid valve, without the CO2 bottle/tank or a PH controller (yet ;-). These three companies seem to be the "main stream" setups and are all relatively close in terms of price. Are they relatively close in terms of performance? Finding factual...

Caridina Japonica shrimp by gizmo
I've introduced today 10 little guys to my 100gallon planted tank. I really don't have a big algae problem but I don't mind having them eating it.... I read in some places they prefer soft water and might eat java moss and some riccia plants. Does anyone has good/bad experience with them...

Carbo Plus Co2 System by gauloiseguy
I never used one, but read up a lot because I was tempted to buy one and decided not to do so because the device reduces KH to produce CO2 (oposed to the manufacturers (sp?) claims it does so buy electrolising waterand let the O2 react with the C in the block...). This means fluctuating KH levels...

Apo. undulatus bleaching by Seweryn
Hello all, Quick question about the bleach treatment. Can Apo. undulatus stand the standard 1/20 bleach solution dip? Say.. 2 minutes? Also, when I plant it, should I leave most of the tuber exposed? Cheers, - Seweryn

CO2 bottle consumed after 2 weeks by RedForeman
if it wasn't a leak, you may be bubbling too much, but without water parameters, can't tell ya... the only way I can get water pushed out of the diffuser is to open the regulator wide open, where it's pushign more CO2 out than the water can 'absorb' post your water parameters, your tap water and...
