Another iron question by blank
Having managed to finally eliminate the hair algae in my 75 gal tank (no CO2, low lighting), I added just 2mm of Seachem Flourish Iron to the tank and within two days the damn algae is coming back. Is the fertilizer encouraging this? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Plant Propagation by Joseph

Lighting by Joseph
Currently on my tank I have the single strip aquarium light reflector that came with the tank. I have a 40w bulb (common enough item), and so I average about 1 watt / gal. What's the cheapest way to increase my lighting levels? Do they make 120 watt florescent bulbs? Or do I need to change the...

Odd neon tetra behavior with CO2 by François Arsenault
Hello everyone, This question is about fish, but since it has to do with CO2 injection, something planted aquarium people are rather familiar with, I figured this newsgroup was relevant enough. My apologies if you feel this is off-topic. A few weeks ago I started adding CO2 to my water, and my...

Sand as substrate by François Arsenault
Hello everyone, Is regular sand, say of the typical sandbox type, an appropriate substrate for a planted aquarium? At first I thought it would do just fine (which it may be, for all I know). It's cheap, and I figured it might make it easier to plant the plants than regular gravel. However, I'm...
