How much light is too much? by Bob
I have a 60 gallon FW tank which currently has 4-48" standard fluorescent bulbs over it. As a general rule, that doesn't seem to be enough for some of the more light-demanding plants, such as grasses and red-leaved plants. (Though they may also be getting done in by my clown loaches....) So I'm...

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...

RO for a planted tank: Shaky's tank by [email protected]
For the fish you want to keep: you don't need the RO, unless breeding is a serious desire. Use the tap, it's fine. Add CO2 and don't worry about PO4. You may need to add PO4 in relatively small amounts, the PO4 they add to water systems/or that may be present in well water etc is not enough to...

Side roots on the stems: why? by François Arsenault
Hello everyone, One thing I don't like about keeping natural plants in my aquarium is that some species tend to grow side roots on their stems, usually at the base of the leaves (or is it where the stems branch?) For instance, plants like Cabomba (sp?), Hygrophila polypermis and Hydrocotyle...
