lining a whiskey barrel by zxcvbob
If I buy a half whiskey barrel at HD, Menard's, or Lowe's, will clear 6 mil plastic be good enough for lining it so it will hold water? I assume it won't hold water without a liner even after the wood swells up. I want to plant a lotus seedling in it. I'm too cheap to buy a commercial barrel...

Substrate heater installation? by Adam Gottschalk
I have a 20w Tunze substrate heater. I planned to put a layer of tiny gravel around it, then Fluorite on top, then some more gravel. Maybe I could pack Fluorite around the heater then gravel on top? (A response on this NG told me it should be 50/50 Fluorite/gravel, which I guess I'll stick too.)

Algae control poll by Tony Volk
Having a fight with BBA and staghorn algae on my hands (nice to find out they're the same thing- confirm if you can), I'm curious to get a general poll from the group as to how you've dealt with algae, and how it worked. It'd be nice to share the different methods and how they've worked as there's...

That's it, I've had it - Blue Green Algae by Shawn
I can't take it any more. I simply cannot beat or keep up with the blue-green algae outbreak I've had now for about 5 months. I've tried everything. Blacking out the tank, removing my CO2 system, algicide treatments - nothing works. It makes my tanks look like crap, and it's killing all my...
