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.)

CO2 diffusers vs. reactors by Tony Volk
After listening to a lot of opinions, I've decided to stick with my 30-35% weekly water changes (at least until I get a python), but to add some CO2 for my high-load 55 gallon (80watts). I made up a DIY CO2 system with one 2L CO2 bottle in order to go slowly before adding a second CO2...

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...
