Crash Course in Planted Aquaria by Sanjay Thomas
Can anyone give me a rundown, somewhat of a crash course, in planted aquaria? I've been semi-lurking here for a bit, trying to figure this whole thing out on my own, but I need a starter "learn the ropes" type of thing if I'm to make heads or tails of it. I'm asking pretty general questions,...

My friend gave me an old aquarium, it's 60L (15 gallons) and only has a 15 watt light in it. The surface is 60cm x 30cm. I just bought a Sylvania GroLux light for it, based on the recommendation of my friend. We lined the inside of the hood with aluminum foil to serve as a reflector. He also...

The Hagen kit contains a reagent #3 that is apparently comprised of zinc dust mixed with N-1 Naphthylethylene-diamine Di HCl. Each time the test is run, a different result is obtained. Apparently, the zinc does not stay in suspension correctly, no matter how much the reagent bottle is...

Newbie question re Ludwigia palustris by Paul McGuinness
Hi I have just added the Ludwigia to my tank (yesterday). I was told at the LFS that this plant can get quite bushy, which seems a good idea. To encourage this should I nip out the tips of the plant as is done with land plants? Also should I let the plant settle in before doing this? For how long?...
