lighting question by Dan J.S.
I am about to acquire hundreds of plants from a fish tank that was placed next to a window - so needless to say the plants are extremely nice (the tank was left alone for two years without water change - all the owner did is add water and feed the fish once a week - he had some african cichlids...

beard alage by §tudz
Hi, I have a bad case of beard alage in my planted tank. I've read on the net it doesn't mean my water is bad, and it says a SAE would help, I don't have room for an SAE. I already have 4 octos and a CAE, would using a chemical algae killer work? or would this kill my plants as well? I've used...

Bamboo as an aquarium plant? by [email protected]
While at the local PetSmart or PetCo (I can't remember the one that I am always in, so much for brand marketing) I saw they have live bamboo for aquariums. I knew it could be rooted in very wet gravel but I had no idea it could be fully submerged. Can it? I also have the feeling that they may be...

Yamato Mystery by P&L
I introduced 5 Yamato shrimp to my planted 90gal tank the other day. Just for fun mostly but for algae utility as well. In the tank are a few Surpae tetras, cardinals, otto's, SAEs, and one medium angel. Oh and two smallish clowns. Chemistry is fine, CO2 injection, pH 7.0, 75 degrees. Shrimp...

Pruning Question: Ceratopteris thalictroides by Steve Rosenthal
I have two Ceratopteris Thalictroides planted in my 29g aquarium. Both are doing quite well and are in need of pruning. Can anyone tell me the best way to accomplish this, and how I would go about re-planting the cuttings? Thanks! Steve

Combining aquariums with homebrewing by Logic316
I wonder if anybody here ever tried using yeast and sugar to generate carbon dioxide for plants. I'm a homebrewer and whenever I make beer or wine, the airlocks on the fermenters bubble like crazy with CO2. There has to be some use for that. I figure it would be a simple matter to just connect a...

Pool Sand over laterite as a substrate- feasible? by Ron Jackson

Riccia? by GS
Does this require CO2 to grow and do well? I have a 32 gallon with 135W of PC lighting, but as of yet no CO2. Guy at the LFS wanted to sell me some but told me it wouldn't survive without CO2. Is this true? I don't mind if it grows slowly, but if its true its gonna die then I will obviously pass...
